New images showing a white Nexus 4 version have hit the web with two days to go until this year’s Google I/O edition kicks off, prompting speculation that the product could be unveiled during the show.
Google+ user Ervin Sue who got the device from a “local buy and sell Web site” has posted the images of this white Nexus 4 online without revealing any other details about the device.
As CNET Asia points out, this isn’t the first time the white Nexus 4 model is mentioned, but this is the first time “we’ve heard of the handset being sold.”
However, there’s no indication that a white Nexus 4 will be unveiled at Google I/O 2013. Assuming that Google would indeed make such a product available, we’re going to ask the obvious question (at least to anyone following mobile-related news): is there any chance this is the Nexus 4 LTE model?
In case you’re not aware of it, some reports say that Google would not announce a Nexus 5 handset at Google I/O 2013. Instead, it would only unveil a slightly upgraded Nexus 4 version, which would offer users official LTE support and 32GB of storage.
From a different point of view, we’ll remind you that Google I/O attendees usually get free hardware. So could this white Nexus 4 version be some sort of special edition for devs attending the show? After all, Google gave attendees white Nexus 7 tablet versions last year.
We’ll be reporting live from Google I/O in a few days, at which point we’ll be able to tell you more details about future Nexus products.
