Cool [Q] Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Edition

Dears,

How is everyone doing?
I have been an Android user for many years (Nexus Flagship to be precise), last year I switched to the Galaxy S4 GPE and it was an amazing phone.
After the release of Galaxy S5, I have been waiting patiently for the release of the GPE, but there are no words yet other than the rumors, speculations, Google putting it's image on the store instead of the S4 by mistake. And that's it.

You may be wondering what this topic is about, I need an advise from you guys on:

1- Is there any hope for it to be released, or was the rumors about Google not going through the trouble of releasing it because of the heart rate and finger sensors.

2- If yes, how long do you think we will wait?

3- I HATE samsung TouchWIz and the bloats that comes with it, is there any custom Stock ROM for it yet?

4- Is there a stable Cyanogenmod for the S5 ?


Regards,

Oh, forgot to mention, the reason why I'm not interested in any other GPE devices is that they all together lack one thing I think it's important to have in a smartphone, a (DECENT CAMERA), every device released by Google whether it was a Nexus or something else lacks a good camera. as a photographer/multimedia user and a blogger, it is a necessary for me.

1 and 2 - read this thread >>> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2796346

3 and 4 - look in the development forums, if threads for what you want exist, then the answers are yes, else no.
