White Nexus 4 reportedly spotted, release date not available

by: Chris SmithJanuary 29, 2013


The Nexus 4 is back in stock with Google’s Play Store but also with other U.S. retailers, so now that you can finally buy your new Nexus smartphone we’ll tell you something that may change your mind, at least for the time being: apparently a white Nexus 4 has been spotted.

In my opinion, color should be one of the last factors that should influence a smartphone purchase, but then there are plenty of buyers who would disagree. In case you don’t want to end up using a Nexus 4 that has the same “boring” color, then you may get the chance to buy a white one later down the road.

Availability details for the white Nexus 4 have not been revealed yet, but from the looks of it, such a version exists.

The image above has been spotted on Picasa and has reportedly been taken with an LG Optimus G. That seems to imply that some LG official has taken the white Nexus 4 picture, although nothing is clear at the moment. Obviously, this could be a fake white Nexus 4, but PhoneArena says the image has not been tampered with.

Whatever the case may be, we’ll find out more details soon, as Google and LG will probably want to officially announce a white Nexus 4 in case it does indeed exist.

Are you buying a Nexus 4 right away or will you be waiting for the white one?

    There will for sure be a white version, just like the white version of the LG Optimus G which this phone i based on. Google just went with black first as the standard option like other companies generally do and then see how sales go before adding another option.

  • I like the White version. I would buy it or rather I will buy it if i dont get the Xepria Z or M10

  • beautiful

  • Color doesn’t matter. SD card slots and removable batteries do. Therefore, I’d not buy a white Nexus 4, either. :)
