Well, look what we have here, if it isn't a white Nexus 4! Hang on, you say you've seen this before? Wait, this is official! That's right, after all of the leaks and speculation, LG have finally taken wraps off of the White Nexus 4. The device is now official and for those wanting to get a taste of the Nexus 4 in White, you won't have too long to wait. LG are saying that the device is launching in Hong Kong first come May 29th, and then making its way through Europe and North America in the "next several weeks". Odds are you might be able to buy one of these in June, if not, some time early July.
There are a few press shots of the device but, let's be honest, you know the score here, right?
If you've forgotten what sort of specs are in the Nexus 4, and are now only interested in the device thanks to its new paint job, then take a look below:
- 4.7â€³1280 x 768 pixel resolution (320 ppi)
- Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
- 8 MP rear-facing camera with 1.3 MP front-facing
- 4G HSPA+ up to 42mbps
- 16 GB storage
- 2 GB RAM
- 802.11 b/g/n
- 2,100 mAh
- Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
We shouldn't have to remind you but, this device is pure Android, and you'll be getting updates straight from Google - with no hassles from the carriers or "testing". Unfortunately for some, this is the same Nexus 4 in different clothing, which means there's no support for LTE or CDMA which still leaves Verizon and Sprint users out in the cold.
There's a brief press release from LG below. How many of you are thinking about buying a white version of the Nexus 4? Is it too little too late by now?
