White Nexus 4

The first press images for the white Nexus 4 have apparently hit the web, but a launch date is not yet in sight.

A tipster sent Android Police these press images, revealing that the white Nexus 4 won’t arrive in a 32GB capacity. Instead the white handset will be available in either 8GB or 16GB versions. The white version apparently has model number E960W, while the current model has model number E960.

All other specs “remain the same, including Android 4.2,” so it looks like Android 4.3 can’t be confirmed at this time.

The white Nexus 4 has been spotted in the wild just before Google I/O, prompting speculation that Google would announce the device during the keynote. However, that didn’t happen, as Google only announced a Nexus experience Galaxy S4 at the event. The white Nexus 4 was seen at the event, albeit not in an official manner.

Considering that the press renders for the white Nexus 4 have already appeared, it would make sense to assume that a launch could be just around the corner. At Google I/O we heard that the white Nexus 4 running Android 4.3 would arrive on June 10, but that potential launch date is yet to be confirmed.

    Front needs to be in white and the back logo in black.

    And a white N4 can never give that cool impression when you lay it flat on the surface and the screen is off

    Its a shame they didn’t go all white, but I guess it didn’t look against the holo UI. Would have looked cool with an inverted holo color scheme though… write that down.

    Since the back is now white I hope they got rid of the glass back & went with something a bit more durable, like a polymer. If they did I’m ordering on day one.

    At least the nexus logo should be in black :S :S :S

    A white side (meaning black glass front and back) would have been my pick.

    Or a pure white one, with the Nexus in black, complete with a “limited edition” white holo theme by google (as someone mentioned below)
