LG officially announces Nexus 4 White

After numerous rumours and leaks, LG has finally announced the launch of the Nexus 4 White.

Evidence of a white version of Google’s current flagship Android smartphone first appeared back in January with a couple of leaked images.

Google I/O 2013 came and went earlier in May, but suggestions of a June launch for the pure white Nexus 4 persisted. Now an official LG news release has confirmed those suspicions.

In actual fact, the so-called Nexus 4 White only partly lives up to its name. Whilst the rear section is indeed pure as snow, the front panel is the same black as the original.

Unsurprisingly, the Nexus 4 White will be identical to the regular black Google Nexus 4 in all but colour. This means that it will feature a 4.7-inch 720p IPS Plus display and a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 CPU backed by 2GB of RAM.

The Nexus 4 also comes with either 8 or 16GB of internal storage and an 8-megapixel camera.

Of course, the single defining feature of the Nexus 4 is that it runs the very latest version of the Android OS, 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, precisely as Google intended it. That means no clunky custom UI or tacked-on software spoiling the pure Android goodness.

The Nexus 4 White will hit Hong Kong on May 29 before rolling out to select markets in Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East in the following weeks. So, that earlier June prediction appears to be right on the money.
