White Nexus 4 on the way soon?


I know it’ll be tough to swallow this story considering many of you can’t even get your original Nexus 4 yet, but bear with me here. New rumors are swirling that Google might soon be releasing a white version of the device, though, as another online retailer has hinted at the existence of such a concoction.

The perpetrator is TalkTalk, a Carphone Warehouse relative (the latter being the same site that originally leaked word of a  white Nexus 4 before). Its site humorously shows a black Nexus 4 in an ad that says you’ll get a white one alongside a Nexus 7, so we’re sure this is another blunder that the retailer will want to forget.

In the off chance that this ad is accurate, however, TalkTalk says new stock is expected December 13th. You can bet we’ll be checking to see if folks are receiving a device from the other side of the color wheel before then, but if you decide to order one be sure to let us know if it ends up coming in the white finish that’s being promised.

It will be interesting to see how that chatoyance back plate would look on a white slate. Someone might mistake the design for a diamond studded phone from afar, but perhaps the effect will be a lot more subtle than what’s on the black models. Head to TalkTalk if you decide you want to try your hand at getting this thing in white, but be sure to go in knowing that you might not be getting what’s advertised in the long run.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Hopefully Google carries the official white version unlike the galaxy nexus. I don’t want to pay a lot more to import.

  2. That is so true since it is coming. from the UK. I also don’t want to pay for import. Hopefully we do hear from google soon since a white Nexus 4 would be sick

  3. It can be leopard spotted for all I care,as long as it’s 32GB. ;-P

  4. December 13 is cutting it pretty close to the the end of the holiday season. The bundle package is smart marketing and smart buying for the rest of us.

  5. White Nexus for Xmas.

  6. You know, I really dont give a crap. I just want my N4.

  7. I’m….dreaming of a Whiiiiite Nexus…

  8. To see the white back, just look at the Korean Optimus G. It’s there, looks just like every white phone.

  9. i hope the front bezel is white…the 2 tone look isnt appealing…and lazy

  10. If the front isn’t white then IDGAF.

    1. Yeah it is pointless to have what amounts to a “white battery cover” phone.

  11. Why do they always tease us with new colors after a month or two of release and just release in multiple colors instead of plain black it will help sell

  12. would love to see how it would look in white!

  13. Not a fan of white phones, but I know many people are. I hate when they announce alternate colors after everyone buys it.
    Im f-ing looking at you and my pebble purple GS3 Samsung……

    Announce alt colors ahead of release so customers have a choice and dont feel like their being shafted having to now try n sell/return their phone just to buy it again in a different color right after the just bought it.

  14. That’s very exciting. Anyway, you

  15. Please add more storage. This could be the best phone to be had. Without ample storage it is just another phone that is lacking. Google, we need storage.
