White Nexus 4 is official: same specs, starts selling tomorrow
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.
