Another White Nexus 4 Poses for Lengthy Photo Shoot

nexus 4 white2

Yesterday, we saw what we believe to be the first ever picture of the white Nexus 4. It featured the Nexus logo, camera, flash, and Crystal Reflection back as one would expect, giving us little reason to assume that it’s anything but real. But why have no others surfaced? Well, thankfully another has, via Vietnamese site Tinhte. In a full hands-on gallery at what appears to be a dinner table, we get the best look yet of this pale beauty.ย 

It’s definitely a Nexus 4, there is no doubt about that. Even with a white back, it still sports the Crystal Reflection design that can only be seen at certain angles. The LG and Nexus logos, camera, and flash are all in the right spots. For some reason, though, the volume rocker and lock switch are both black, which sort of takes away from its whiteness.

Other than the back and sides, the front looks identical to the currently available black version. And you know what, that’s a thing of beauty, as there is a good chance we’ll see replacement part resellers put up these new white backs that can be swapped out with black backs in no time. Don’t worry, I’ve already looked into tearing our current versions apart for white backs and it looks incredibly simple. We’re just waiting now for them to be released.

So, what do you think?

  • I must admit the iPhone 5 in white does like kind of feminine, but I think many of the white Android devices look fine to me. I have a white GS3 and don’t think twice about if it looks too “girly” for me. I think it just depends on who likes what color really. I really don’t get why Nexus devices can’t be all white though, instead of just the back.

  • Andrew

    -_- black front makes it look terrible

  • Marco Mendoza

    The black and white looks weird it should be all white except for the screen of course

  • Anil Reddy

    Looks like a jewel!! Especially the back looks awesome, almost like embedded cyrstals shining beautifully!! A beauty!

  • Michael Aston

    funny, so many give so much credence to look and feel of a device, then throw a bullet proof case over them? weird

  • Michael Aston

    me love white in all device. clean and germ free

  • Geo

    so this will probably be the 32GB version

  • matti861

    Why do nexus phones never go full white. The back white front black thing looks stupid. The gnex was the same

  • Daistaar

    “Looks like it has twilight skin” (girl next to me said it; not me)

  • Yeaaaah.. not digging the entire front being black. Looks like a damn othello piece or something. Just weird. Should have at least made it like the White Gnex.. where even some of the front is white. Personally, owning the White Gnex.. I’d prefer to have the entire phone white. I don’t care about the supposed “infinite screen” thing where it all blends into the bezel. If I’m buying a white phone.. its because I want the damn thing to be WHITE.. not partially white.. Might as well just buy a white case and throw it on the black Nexus 4. Smh.

  • Bigwavedave25

    I’d buy it! OK, almost ready to leave Verizon…

  • MooleyBooleyTroll

    White phones are fugly!!!

    Nice to have choices though ๐Ÿ™‚

  • trubin

    Why not make the front white also, instead of the 2-tone.

  • I thought the front was also white, that’s disappointing

  • LTENexus

    Obviously the white Nexus 4 is the unlocked LTE version that will be unveiled at Google I/O with Android 5.0, of course. A person can dream ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Alexander Anteneh

    why is the front still black

  • andrew galvin

    It looks weird with the all black front. A bit too girly for me. I bet the i/o attendees receive one of these

  • Higher_Ground

    Nรณ ฤ‘eฬฃp ๐Ÿ™‚

  • DanWazz

    What kind of cake is that?

  • They are shipping out quick to at least in the united states placed the order yesterday afternoon. I woke up this morning checked my e-mail and received a e-mail stating it has been shipped out wasn’t even a 24 hour turn around.!!


  • anezarati

    kinda weird that the front is still black. i wish it was all white. except for the buttons

  • Chris

    Um. Does anyone know what that lockscreen is? I REALLY like it a lot and would love to see it on my tablet!

    • kris

      that would be go locker

      • Chris

        Awesome. Thanks a ton!

  • Scott Martin

    seriously, why do they make everything in white? worst color choice ever.

  • Raven

    I seem to be in the minority here, but I hate the look of white electronics of any kind. It all looks too Appley for me. But, I could see some girls liking it over the black version.

    • brkshr

      I’m with you. I leave the white electronics to girls.

      • kidtronic

        Psst. Your macho is showing.

    • Q’s

      I dont really mind the white, but is it really that hard to make the front of the device white as well?

    • I don’t mind it if it’s done right. However, on this device I do not like the white b/c of all the shimmering on the back. The black one has it also I know but, the white one looks way to girly with it for me.

  • hooligan

    So if the white N4 really does exist, who is going to get it and then smother it with a case?

    (I keep bouncing between my Diz case and naked, it’s just so pretty!)

  • mike

    I’m pretty sure those buttons aren’t black. I think they are the same Chrome style buttons, but because of the lighting, they are showing up black in the picture.

    • mike

      One more thing as an example, look at the shot with the face of the phone. We know the chrome edge is silvery shiny etc…. compare how that looks (black) to the way the buttons look and it seems clear to me, they are chrome, not black.

  • reyalP

    Looks to feminine in white with the glittery back.

  • NemaCystX

    I’m not a fan of white phones but that is gorgeous, the back doesn’t overpower in looks like it does on the black one. very nice

  • Ugly. Why isn’t everything white? Htc did the same thing with the og evo. Lame

    • hickhamt

      agreed! i want ALL white.. why make the part i dont look at the color i want!??!

    • DanWazz

      I think they want that clean black slab look for the front. Just a clean and simple front and they haven’t figured out the white screen look, yet.

  • Mike

    Going to add this to my collection of White Nexus, Nexus’s.. U get what I’m saying ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Uncle Paul

    This is probably going to be the special addition Google I/O phone.
    just like the special Gnex, and N7.

  • wakefinance

    This is the best looking white phone on the market (if it comes to market…). I love that the bezel around the screen is still black, and the crystal reflection is very subtle and appealing against white. I imagine I would get tired of seeing it against black.

  • Tommy Thompson

    This could end up being a Google IO giveaway. Much like the white Google Nexus..

    • Justin W

      White Nexus 7?

      • Tommy Thompson

        Yes. Last years Google IO, people got white Nexus 7’s. I’m looking at mine right now. The back is white, much like that nexus 4

        • Justin W

          That one’s pretty sweet. I wish I would be able to afford going to Google IO, but I don’t see a need to other than the free goodies since they stream it each year.

          • It would be cool but the white nexus7 is 8gb so im guess the white nexus 4 might be 8gb too.

          • Justin Winker

            My guess is that it’s the “special edition” one they would have given away at the event in NY, just like they did with the Nexus 7. Now, since they didn’t have that event, maybe they’ll sell them for a profit – I’m pretty sure I would buy one just because it looks sweet. I’d then sell my black N4 xD

  • LTE or GTFO

  • Nexus_FrEak

    I can get the wife over to Android with this bad boy! She’d be all over this!

  • mechapathy

    Grr, baby. Very grr.

  • Martin Pelant

    Is that a key lime pie or is it a custom locks creen on the 4th picture?
    Just noticed the menu icon – definitely a custom lock screen

    • Justin W

      I actually think that’s a screenshot of a lockscreen. Why would the on-screen keys remain active on the lockscreen? With my N4, they don’t (except the Now key).

      • 3rd party lockscreen.

    • Steve Benson

      Go Locker from the Play Store. “Go” has a whole line of customization apps.

    • Luxferro

      I was wondering about the lockscreen as well.

    • bigbuckin12

      looks like the miui locker to me. maybe some 3rd party lockscreens dont remove the nav keys

  • Spider210

    nice looking one way or another

  • ToddAwesome

    I’m moderately aroused. Is that weird?

    • Probably not the only one. ๐Ÿ˜›

    • moelsen8

      seriously, this phone is purdy. hope no one tells my wife.

    • Jonathan Bunch

      I like it but it looks to famine for me to own be perfect for the wife though!

      • Raven

        Famine? Does that mean really skinny? I think that you were looking for feminine.

  • zmberven
  • 4n1m4L

    The buttons are black??

    • Kinda weird, right?

      • 4n1m4L

        This nexus has always had a kind of weird fashion sense. Its not bad, but I think I prefer black crystal reflection.

    • ToddAwesome

      I’m digging it, and I normally don’t dig white phones. I must be getting old.

    • hooligan

      No no, the buttons are silver (just like on my N4 I’m looking at right now). Just these particular images made the buttons look darker than they are.

      • 4n1m4L

        Good, I think.
