Rumor: LG Nexus 4 to Arrive in White
*Update as of 30/1/2013 8.46pm: Vietnamese site Tinhte published several pictures of the white Nexus 4. While its back plate is clad in white, the fascia and bezel still remain black.
Despite only coming in one color, the LG Nexus 4 is a hot favorite among consumers around the world. Demand is set to increase significantly if Google and LG launch a white model.
According to Phone Arena, an anonymous source sent them an image of a white Nexus 4. The EXIF data reveals that the image is taken by a LG Optimus G, which suggests that the source could be an LG insider.
As you can see towards the bottom of the image, the device sports the unique reflective pattern of tiny circles which reflect light at certain angles. This lends credence that we are looking at an actual white Nexus 4 unit.
This isn't the first time we've heard about a white Nexus 4. In October last year, a screenshot taken of Carphone Warehouse's inventory system revealed a white and black variant of the Nexus 4. However, neither Google nor LG made any mention of a white model at launch.
We found the LG Nexus 4 to be well-designed and lightning-fast in its operation. However, we did not like its below average battery life, subpar imaging performance, and the lack of a memory card slot.
