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!

  • 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.

      smaller bezel!? are you insane? :O …how else will the carriers brand these phones =

  • Kierra

    This isnt a particularly awesome looking phone white or black, but I’m still considering it.

    White phones always look cheap

    Ok, now I think you are purposely torturing us with the nex news today…  What did we do to you to deserve this?!?!?!

  • Josue

    Nice. I’m sure the women would like it.

    • Chris

      Yup, a Nexus for women.

    • Anonymous

      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.

    i don’t care what color it comes in, i just want one in my pocket right meow.

      That’s what she said?

      Then 3 days later when your in line at Verizon returning it, you will say I hate white I want it out of my purse now!

    What happened to that white iPhone’s home button? :-P

  • droidrev71

    Looks better than an iPhone but prefer black.

  • http://mobiletechview.blogspot.com J_Dav1

    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.

  • Dominick DeVito

    You know what they say.

    Once you go white, Apple lawsuits you will fight.

    Homo’s like the white.

    It honestly doesn’t look all that bad with the screen on, but when the screen is pitch black it will look like a cheap toy like others have said.

  • Goblueboy

    All these Galaxy Nexus posts, and not a single release date.

    Wait…you mean Apple didn’t patent the color white on a wireless devices???

      ZOMG TEH NFC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Muddy B00ts

        ok, you’ve mentioned NFC to make fun of its fans waaaaaaaaaaaayyy more than the fans themselves.  Get over it.  It’s a great feature, but NOBODY is buying it solely for that.

        • Anonymous

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

          It’s the “OMG UR SUCH A n00blets!!!! TEH GALLUXY NEXUS is BETTER than anything else EVUR! Quad-core?!?!?! IDK what that even means but the NEXUXS IS TEH BESTEST!!!!!! LONG LIVE TEH NFC!!!! 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)

          I’m mad bro. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

    I’m not a fan of white phones, and this render is especially ugly.  The smooth, no button, all black front can’t be beat.  This white one just ruins that look.

    • Anonymous

      Agree. White phones just make me think “cheap” for some reason.

    White would be nice

    I’m hoping the main point of this post was to say this subtly:

    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.

    I don’t care what color it is. I just want a G-Nex ASAP!

    No thanks…don’t see the hype in the white. The black is a more sleeker look, but just my. 02¢

      I see a Nexus and I want it painted black……….

        Yeah, Iam not feeling the white I guess I need to see it in person, Black, Grey, brushed or polished Aluminum works for me

        • bigrob60

          I mentioned below that this white phone doesn’t look that bad. I’m not a white phone kinda guy. The white iphone is horrid looking. But this render looks like it pulls it off.

            Yeah I see your point Bigrob, for me I have to see it in person but nice job on the render :)

    I don’t get the whole white device thing…looks pretentious and show all the grime from people handling it.

    I’m not sure why anyone would want a white one..  it just screams iPhone to me.  No thanks.

      I thought the same thing as soon as I saw it. Too iphone-ish for my tastes.

        of course its too iphone-ish….its a samsung

          Another reason why I love my Moto DX and will most likely get the RAZR next.

    talk of white phone when the black one is not out? give me black!

  • Anonymous

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

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RO464TS2Z2OBZKTIISZMWJZIHY Andrew Coulter

    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.

    How about they allow me to buy any version of the damned phone now!

    • http://twitter.com/KyleIbbotson Kyle Ibbotson

      Ditto! I would buy a white nexus in a heart beat!!!!

      • We_Want_White_Nexus
        • Nexus_White

          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!!!

    Actually it’s ugly…very, very ugly. I liked the white Nexus S because the front bezel was still black but all white like this makes it look like a toy and an iPhone.

    • Evan Knofsky

      You do realize this was made by a user and not Samsung, they easily could do the same with the bezel like they did with the Nexus S

    I wouldn’t discount it, especially since Samsung seems hell bent on directly competing with Apple. Which means having black AND white.
