White Samsung Galaxy Nexus Render is Pretty, Can We Have It Too?

If you are an avid DL comment peruser, then you may have stumbled upon this comment from a reader who suggests that a white version of the Galaxy Nexus will be out some time in February. I’d love to comment on whether or not that will happen, but truthfully, this is the first time I have ever heard it mentioned. To be clear, this is not a post about a white G-Nex rumor, it’s about something else. It is about a render of a white G-Nex that one of our readers was inspired to make after reading that particular comment.

Talk about a pretty phone and one that I wish was coming to stores in the next week at the same time as the version we have been seeing for the last month or so. Will we ever see something like this officially? They made a white Nexus S – it’s not out of the question.

What do you guys think? Would you be interested in a white version?

Cheers Andrew!

    Yea id like to have it in white, I think it looks super sweet!. Some people are harder on phones than others, I myself am not, so the chance of scratches or any other damage im not worried about. The iphone is the only white phone ive ever seen. Obviously some people want white and others want black, so it would be nice if all phones came in both black and white.

  • Lizros1873

    i like white, ceramic white

  • Trina Angel

    I would switch back to Android from Iphone if they made a white Galaxy Nexus.

    agray brush metal matte finish is more my taste

  • Justin Kos

    screw white, thats what apple does lets get a nice android GREEN! one

  • Whitenexus

    YES – want it!  put it out with a couple spec bumps (better camera, next-gen LTE radio) and it would be glorious

  • Honestly I think the white is a bad idea. With black the screen blends almost perfectly into the rest of the phone.

  • You should have the choice of black or white on launch date. I hate when they come out with a white model months later. I would get the white one sweet !!!!!!!

    white phones look better IMO

  • Ldakota66

    Definitely interested in a white one!!!  Great now I’ll have to buy one G-Nex next week and one in Feb if this does happen.  How about a DroidLife inspired PINK one!!  😀

    Would probably be another best buy exclusive.

  • Just when I thought I couldn’t want a Nexus anymore than I already do………

  • Earleepa

    I would buy a white phone right after I have to start setting down to piss.

  • um……..no.  It would have been orgasim if the white on the front was black to blend in with the screen.

  • Taha Sheikh

    Meh…I like the black better

  • Here is an idea … since Sammy like to use platics and such to keep their phones light why not make a full Carbon/Kevlar case? The sexiest part of the RAZR is the Carbon/Kevlar back. I would love to see a phone that has the entire back of the phone made of this.

  • It would look better IMO if the front stayed all black to blend with the screen and the sides and rear where all white.

    • Bob Johnson

      It would look better in animal print! Zebra stripes or giraffe spots … rowr.

  • No.

    There’s a reason no other popular electronic device besides Apple is white, it just doesn’t look as good.  Apple made white popular on their gadgets as a way to easily identify their brand.  They wanted them to stand out just like the people who paid extra to have gold letters on the back of their car.  Basically to try and say “Look at me, I have an iDevice”.  Other than those people, I don’t get who else wants a white phone, besides maybe females who treat it like an accessory and worry about matching colors.

    Yes, I just made a broad generalization with no supporting facts.  It’s called No Nexus Rage.

  • @Liderc:disqus  Me too.. my best friend’s sister makes $85 hourly on the computer. She has been out of work for 8 months but last month her income was $7562 just working on the computer for a few hours. Go to this web site http://uuurl.net/31ei3

  • RenderThis

    “Render” a boot to the head for every tease article you publish until the Gnex is actually in my posession.

  • Awwwww, White?  No Thanks!  Not digging the framed screen at all.
    The BEAUTY of this device is there are NO BUTTONS and when the screen is off (or you have a clever black/dark background) the screen fades seamlessly into the face plate (thank you AMOLED).  That is so awesome!  White would totally change this visual dynamic.

    My wife can keep her white i*hone4….  Blaaaa!
    A white back cover similar to the Nexus S – OK sure; But a full white face – NO.

    edit… I may have jumped ahead of myself.  I prefer a DARK theme to my phone (save battery, makes icons pop, stealth, etc).  If you prefer a WHITE theme to your phone this could work for you.  However you would need to do a UI hack to reverse the colors on the Back/Home/Recent buttons… (which I’m sure all colors will be available soon!)  🙂

  • Thelegendofdavid

    Have you guys and gals read the review of the G nexus that cnet put up. Apparently they think 4.0 is too cluttered and still leaves android without an identity. They found it confusing at times to use and when paired next to the i-crap our nexus struggled. What a bunch of bull!!!!! Go read the review. It made me laugh and wonder what Mathias (the designer) of 4.0 would think if he read the review and saw the comment of the os being designed by three designers at the 11th hour. And yes. I’m mad bro.

      ahaha i would love to see matias respond to that. he strikes me as the down to earth kinda guy that wouldn’t sugarcoat his disapproval

    I had the Droid 2 Global in white and really liked it so i know i would love  a white Gnex…the only thing is after a few months it looked more Vanilla then White.

    White feels like a feminine color for phones to me. Give me business black any day or gunmetal and chrome.

  • JMac726

    I like the white Nexus S better.  Make it a white back, not a white front, and I’m all in.  I like the current Galaxy Nexus because from a quick glance you almost cant tell where screen and bezel start/end

  • Alexa White

    I love it.  I don’t think it looks cheap or like a toy at all.  Looks like porcelain to me.  And all the people saying it would getting dirty from people touching it?  How many people exactly would be handling your phone?  I rarely hand my phone over to anyone else.  And my phone rarely shows fingerprints anywhere BUT the screen, and the screen here is the same color as any other smartphone screen.  For anyone else saying it looks like an iPhone because it’s white… you understand they have black iPhones, too, right?  This looks a million times better than any iPhone.

  • hatethanet

    I’m interested in a version that I can actually buy.

  • Sean333

    BBBLLLLAAAAAAGGGGGQQQQQUUUU!!!!!!! (wait let me swallow that regurg back down)…………

    Why anyone would want a white portable electronic device is beyond me… do they not ever notice the nasty ugly yellowish stains that beget such devices… it’s from your nasty a$$ hand sweat and greasy palms…. lol

    SERIOUSLY!!! There IS a reason they make the things dark in color…

  • bigrob60

    I’m not big on white phones but this render does look nice.

  • Tom

    That white really makes the huge bezel stand out.

    Are there any rumors of top end phones with smaller bezels? The current 3 phones have pretty big bezels.

    • Greg Williams

      Yea, where are the phones with the edge to edge displays!

      • Anonymous

        With no bezel I think you’re going to run into accidental presses of the screen.  Same concept as tablets and but on a smaller scale.  However I’m not saying they can’t get a bit smaller, but edge to edge doesn’t seem practical unless they build into the software a way to account for light accidental edge presses.

    • OG Droid

      Yeah I would think the white would get scratched to easily or show marks unlike the black one. 

      • Shaunwin

        It would be just to opposite. Just like car, black shows more dirt and scratches. 

        • Anonymous

          Car and phone paint don’t show dirt and wear in the same way.  One of the problems with black cars is the shininess/reflective attributes to the paint/wax which shows dirt easily.  Meanwhile most people’s handsets are filthy from being handled 1000 times a day and you can barely notice the dirt or wear.

          • Bob Johnson

            And that is why plastic is preferable to metal and glass construction in cell phones (and also why a matte finish is sexiest on a car).

    • Henderson

      Ya, I wanna see phones with less bezel.

      • Justin

        Yes! Bring on the phones with less bezels please.

      How do you think Apple gets so many sales?   Plus I could imagine smartphone sales aren’t that one-sided gender wise.  I can’t imagine ever getting one but if it’ll help them move units to females then they should put one out.

    What happened to that white iPhone’s home button? 😛

  • droidrev71

    Looks better than an iPhone but prefer black.

  • I think it would be nice, but I still believe I would go with black. The true blacks on the nexus screen make the thing look great. The software buttons blend into the bezel from what I have seen.

          I don’t mention “TEH NFC!!!!!” to make fun of it’s fans. I have no problem with Nexus fans.

AND UR HTC whatever is MOTOFAIL cuz it has 360 SENSEBLUR! NEZUS HAZ NO BLOAT” trolls that throw away all sense of logic and literally DEFINE hypocrite that I have a problem with.

          To make a long story short(and so the Nexus trolls who have a short attention span understand)

    No, the black is what makes it sexy. It looks like a huge slab of curved glass. The white makes it look like plastic.

  • Talk about a great way to give back to your customer. Sell black and white in stores. And if the customer really wants. Allow that to go online and order the phone in whatever color they want. They could even charge a small fee to make it the way the customer wants. Verizon should pay me for these ideas.

          Yes, I do see a white Nexus in the future. I remember there was a Best Buy exclusive on the SGS 1 in white last Fall. Let’s just hope the white version is released soon, because options are best- and I am sure it will also help the phone sell a lot more units.

        • Sammy_we-want_white

          Yes, we do not want another half white Sammy phone like the original Galaxy S (Fascinate), Nexus S or the upcoming Stratosphere.  
          Hey Samsung do us a solid and release the Nexus in white as well (especially since the U.S. did not receive the SGSII in white, like the rest of the world did).  A see a ton of people walking around with the white i*hone 4, let’s get some white Nexus’ out there as well!!!
