Battery door availability all but confirms white Galaxy Nexus for Verizon

A replacement parts supplier has a few white Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE battery doors up for auction at eBay, further confirming rumors of a colorless variant of the phone headed for Verizon. The latest whispers suggest the new model will launch with 16GB of onboard storage, which could coincide with separate reports for a 16GB Nexus landing at Big Red on April 5th.

Before we get too excited, the back covers being sold are far from official. There is always some chance that a third-party decided to manufacture the white backs on their own in order to cash in with unsuspecting buyers. Given the coinciding reports from credible sources of an actual white Nexus waiting in the wings, the chances of this are pretty slim. Besides, the franken-Nexus that would result wouldn’t be the most visually appealing specimen (unless you’re into the whole harlequin scene).

          Does the Euro version back cover fit? They don’t have the Verizon branding.

    Ok, someone please help me out here. “Before we get too excited, the back covers being sold are far from official. There is always some chance that a third-party decided to manufacture the white backs on their own in order to cash in with unsuspecting buyers. Given the coinciding reports from credible sources of an actual white Nexus waiting in the wings, the chances of this are pretty slim.” WHAT THE HELL IS HE TRYIN TO SAY RIGHT HERE BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE A DIRECT CONTRADICTION!!! You say “these are FAR from official” but then right afterwards you say “Given the coinciding reports from credible sources of an actual white Nexus waiting in the wings” so is this cover OFFICIAL or FAKE? Anyone cause the author of this article doesn’t know.

    They should’ve made the back cover without the VZW branding to make it more appealing. Also with the original G-Nexus color and to fit the extended battery…

    White back-cover = ugly
    But that doesn’t change the fact that I wouldn’t mind seeing my black one replaced (by a customized black one of course, like they had at MWC)

    Actually black is colorless. White is all colors mixed together. JUST SAYING!!!

      To be fair, in display technology, like phone screens and televisions, black is the absence of light, or you could say, color. On physical objects, the mixing of many or all colors produces black.

    yet this won’t fix the awful radios that samsung uses in their phones. Come on Google let someone other than samsung make the next nexus, this is a phone first and foremost

    Meh… Hey Samsung, how about if you produce the freaking accessories you promised us back in October of last year. And no, your $90 desktop charge dock doesn’t count.
