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.

Chris Smith, may I get the source of these reports please?

My memory isnn’t good, what tablets? :)
It’s a huge difference in usage and purpose between 7″ tablets and 10″ tablet.
Like the Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Note 2 ???
No, like the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.
That sucks, I’m sick of my Samsung phone!
compare the camera in the 2 photos showing the back of the phone. Something fishy going on…
totally agree, the camera looks different in each pic.
Earlier it was reported that the Carphone Warehouse (UK) was no longer selling the Nexus 4, now the page is back online (http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/buy/LG_NEXUS_4) with an option to “Choose your colour” – it currently only offers Black though…
