Leak: Here are more images of the white Nexus 4 than you can shake a stick at

by: ŠtefanJanuary 30, 2013

LG’s Nexus 4, as far as I’m concerned, doesn’t exist. It’s the best Android smartphone on the planet, assuming you can find one. That’s the hard part. Everybody wants one, and it’s easy to see why. It’s cheap, it’s fast as hell, it’s gorgeous, and it runs stock Android. You really couldn’t come up with a better combination if you tried. The thing is though, the Nexus 4 only comes in black. But what happens if you made one in white? Turns out you make the most lust worthy Android device on the planet even more attractive.

I don’t know how the Vietnamese site Tinh tế managed to score this as yet to be unannounced white Nexus 4, but it doesn’t matter because they did one hell of a job uploading photos of it to the internet. I’m only putting two images in this article, but trust me when I say that you’ll want to head over to their site and see the complete collection.

When will Google announce this beauty? Hard to say. Google I/O is in May, which is a bit far away. Maybe Google will show it off at Mobile World Congress next month? Maybe it’s a limited edition device that’s only meant for employees? I haven’t got the slightest clue and I’m not going to bore you with speculation.

What I will say is that white or black, it doesn’t matter if LG can’t make enough of this phone. And if they keep on acting like they have been for the past few months, then they’re going to keep on receiving the cold shoulder from me.

    I wish it had a white glass front.. This way it looks like a mime’s outfit with both black and white..

    am waitin fr it

  • To me, “white” phones never look quite right. Especially this one.
    Yes, it’s white on the back and sides, but as soon as you look at the front, it’s black!

    Either make the whole thing the same coloour, or leave it is it is.

      So even tho u can buy this phone now @ Google play ur still going to wait????

  • just wished the sides of the front part were white too, then woohooo this would be the first and only white phone i would buy. Still considering it. But looking at lg’s production rate, this would probably be in my hands by Q1 Next year or Q2?

    The back and sides of the nexus 4 are one complete assembly which is easily removed with 2 screws at the bottom. The rest of these images show a black front bezel which hardly seems likely. I would bet is nothing more than a white backside assembly which was stolen off a line somewhere in Vietnam, and that the completed white nexus will be exactly that… completely white. Regardless of whether I’m right or wrong, I’ll be picking one of these white backside assemblies up on ebay as soon they become available to swap on the black 16GB I snagged on launch day ;-p

    but you can think of the “nexus 4 situation” like this: It’s the rare legendary Pokemon that isn’t easy to catch, hard to get even when you find a place where you could get it and it may not be the best, but you will learn every nerds respect with it :)

    Looks like a girl phone to me. I think my black one looks better. What’s up with this craze over white phones lately?
