white nexus 4

After a flurry of leaked images, the white version of the Nexus 4 has been officially announced. The device will roll out starting tomorrow in Hong Kong.

LG today officially unveiled one of the worst kept secrets in the mobile industry in the last few weeks – the white Nexus 4.

The white Nexus 4 was first mentioned back in November 2012, but it wasn’t till last month that we’ve seen credible hands-on images of the device. The phone was even leaked in a set of press images, a surefire indicator that an official launch was imminent.

Now that the white Nexus 4 has become official, you should know that, besides the new skin, there’s absolutely no difference between it and the black model. The specifications include the same Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch 720p display, and an 8MP camera.

Despite rumors that a new version of Android would be made available along with the white Nexus 4, the device apparently still runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The white Nexus 4 will become available in Hong Kong tomorrow, May 29, and will roll out in “select markets in Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East” in the coming weeks. We do expect it to pop up on the Play Store sooner rather than later, probably at the same great price of $299 for the 8GB version.


SEOUL, May 28, 2013 ㅡ LG Electronics (LG) today announced the launch of Nexus 4 White, the newest edition of the popular smartphone developed in collaboration with Google. Nexus 4 White features the same stellar Android™ experience as the original Nexus 4, combining LG’s sophisticated hardware design and popular Google Services such as Google Now and Photosphere for an outstanding overall user experience.

“Nexus 4 set the standard for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smartphones,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “Nexus 4 White delivers the same Google experience to consumers in a stylish and attractive color option.”

Nexus 4 White comes with the superb 4.7-inch 1280-by-768 True HD IPS Plus display (320ppi) supported by Zerogap Touch technology. At its heart is the high performing Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM.

Starting in Hong Kong on May 29, Nexus 4 White will roll out globally in select markets in Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East over the next several weeks.

    Very weird why it is launching in Hong Kong first, Nexus devices usually don’t make their way to Hong Kong so soon.

    I know I don’t have to write anything, but people never seize to amaze me! It’s the white version of a black phone released about 6 months ago! That’s it; nothing else!

    I just needed to point that out and am wondering, “Why on Earth is there ANY conversation about this?!” Again, it’s a white version of a previously released, now very old in terms of computing technology, 6-month old black phone!

    Hmmm… LMAO!
