White Nexus 4 caught on video thanks to Qualcomm [VIDEO]

White Nexus 4 video

It was only yesterday we caught glimpse of a white Nexus 4 captured in the wild by a Google+ user. To our dismay, it turned out to be on helluva “custom job.” Since I’m not one to give up hope so easily (especially after earlier leaks), I still believed. Fast forward to today where the boys at TechView.me actually got up close and personal with a white Nexus 4, at a mobile trade show in Dubai. Before you scream, “FAAAAKE,” the white Nexus 4 was on display at Qualcomm’s booth, where you can get a full 360 degree view of the device via the video below.

Now, Google has mentioned that there wont be any new hardware announcements at this year’s Google I/O, but we’re wondering if some new storage options and color variants would be out of the realm of possibility? We wont have to wait much longer to find out. Google IO officially kicks off tomorrow and we’ll be on hand, bringing you the very latest.

Thanks, Mitchel!

    My do we need a video of this? It’s a Nexus 4 with a white back, I mean hell we’ve even seen pictures – it was confirmed by multiple sources days ago. Google’s done the same thing with the Nexus S, and the Galaxy Nexus, this should be no surprise.

    what a beautiful phone..

  • TechGuy22

    still the same phone…meh.

    Look carefully at 0:57 on that video. Android 4.2, baseband 33. This was the original software the N4 shipped with, which has since been upgraded to 4.2.2 and baseband 48. Since baseband 48 disabled LTE in the RIL, they’ve updated all N4s being produced to use it at the time the software is written to it in the manufacturing process (to not do so would violate the FCC, since the device never received LTE ratification). So, this is a very old phone – as in, it was likely manufactured back toward the end of last year or maybe January at the latest.

    It’s highly likely a “proof of concept” batch of white Nexi was produced in a limited run, to demo what it would look like, and that this display model is one of them – Qualcomm, being a partner in its production, would have had access to some of those units for various reasons. But given the fact that the phone is at least that old, makes me speculate it’s totally unrelated to IO.

    with the same no expandable memory and non removable battery topped with fragile back glass? NO THANKS!

      Can people just give up with the whole expandable memory thing on Nexus devices? http://www.androidcentral.com/why-nexus-devices-have-no-sd-card Seriously, guys. Google have said they aren’t going to do it.

      • Adnoxaei

        And as long as flagship phones have expandable memory there will be people who criticize the lack of expandable memory on the Nexus line. Google chose to take away a feature that the vocal minority like. Those people will continue being vocal.

          Am I the only one who finds it obnoxious? Why complain about something that won’t change?
