Last month we heard rumors that Samsung would be producing a white Galaxy Nexus, now we have confirmation that the white Galaxy Nexus is indeed real and coming to the UK on February 13th. Samsung says that the white (GSM) Galaxy Nexus will be making its way to “a range of stores across the country” next Monday, February 13th.
Nothing to new with this version of the Galaxy Nexus, the only real difference is the color. Samsung has only announced it being available as the GSM model, so as of now it won’t be available in the US unless you decide to pay full price for it. We expect to hear about a white version of the Galaxy Nexus in LTE flavor soon since Verizon already has the LTE Galaxy Nexus and Sprint will have theirs soon.
We’ve got the press release below. Who’s going to go out and get a white Galaxy Nexus? I generally don’t like the white devices, but this one looks pretty nice. Let us know in the comments.

6th February 2012, London, UK – Samsung has today confirmed the availability of a white variant of the Galaxy Nexus in the UK. The first smartphone to feature Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Nexus White can be bought in a range of stores across the country from 13th February.
Simon Stanford, UK & IRE Telecommunications & Networks Division said: “After much speculation, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Galaxy Nexus White which follows the great reception the phone has received since it was launched back in November. One of the things we at Samsung pride ourselves on is the choice we offer customers, and we’ve enjoyed huge success to date by introducing white variants of our most popular models to our product portfolio.”
The Galaxy Nexus™ White offers customers all the features found in the original Galaxy Nexus, from the 4.65’’ HD Super AMOLED display which boasts a market-leading resolution of 720p (1280×720), to the 5 megapixel camera and super-fast 1.2GHz dual core processor and HSPA+ connectivity so owners can connect to and browse the internet quickly and easily when they’re out and about.
As the first smartphone to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Nexus White offers customers an entirely new look and feel, including a redesigned user interface with improved multi-tasking, notifications, Wi-Fi hotspot, NFC support and a full web browsing experience. In addition to a rounded slim design, the Galaxy Nexus White also introduces new innovations such as ‘Face Unlock’, which uses facial recognition to unlock the phone. Whilst integration with Google+™ means owners can easily stay in touch with friends and family and talk over Google+ Messenger.
