Specific Hardware Features?

by shanesaccount    May 16, 2013, 1:42 PM

Hey fellow tech geeks -- Does anyone have an answer to this: will the new "nexus" device have support for hardware specific features. (NFC, S-Beam, Air View, Air Gestures, Barometer, Pedometer etc.)?

The android geeks I've asked chant "stock is better," but other than timely updates and lack of 'bloatware', they can't give me any concrete answers as to why it's better. And when I suggest I may actually lose features -- they shrug, and get defensive. So does anyone know -- will the hardware advancements of the Galaxy S4 be utilized by the stock version offered by google?

---

FYI - reason I'm asking is -- I bought a new Samsung Galaxy S4 on the 1st and have 4 more days to decide if I want to return it and wait for the Google version to come out in a few weeks. Since I'm going to have the device in my hand for the next two years - and it would be nice to have google updates as soon as they are released, I want to make the right informed decision, but can't seem to find the answers I'm looking for re the functionality.
