White Nexus 4 Bumper Spotted in the Wild, Now We Just Need the Phone

white nexus4 bumper

A white version of the Nexus 4 has been on our radar since the phone was first introduced back in October of last year. At that time, retailers like Carphone Warehouse were listing a white version as being available soon, though there were no pictures at the time to prove such a version existed. Then January arrived, and some lucky soul was able to spend a few minutes of quality time with white Nexus 4. Boy, was it pretty. But since then, we have yet to see it surface again, nor have we been given a release date. 

As of today, the situation hasn’t changed, however, we do have another ounce of proof that a white version is in the making. Retailer Videotron is now selling (or at least displaying) a white Bumper for the device. Sure, you could buy a white bumper for the black version of the phone just like you would with a case, but we’re taking the other approach in thinking this was created to be paired with the actual white phone.

The white Bumper doesn’t appear to be available through Videotron’s website, but if you live in Canada near one of their stores, feel free to stop by and see if you can’t pick one up.

    I was the one to take these pictures, and just to clarify, they are on sale at all Videotron retail locations. I went to a few today trying to get the black bumper but they only had white available.

  • Even though its my dev phone, I’d still love to turn my Nexus 4 into a white stallion.

    • You’re not alone.

  • sagisarius

    Now make them in like red and blue, and I’ll take one!

      I remember this rumor back when they said the vzw Galaxy Nexus was coming in white. Then we saw white battery covers but no actual white phone. After all of LG’s problems making the N 4 I’ll be amazed if there actually is a white one.
      Fool me once……

    I gotta be honest, whats going on with droid life? Wasnt droid life supposed to be strictly verizon phones, while http://an.droid-life.com/ was for all phones? Can someone please explain this? Because there are so many nexus 4 updates, and its not a phone for verizon. Im just trying to understand. I love the site I just get depressed seeing all these phones I can never have

      “If you just landed here and are already a reader of Droid Life, you are
      probably asking yourself, “What is the difference between the two
      sites?” The answer is sort of simple. Droid Life is our flagship site,
      but the focus has always been on Verizon’s Android device lineup, along
      with other general Android talk to make sure that its readers are always
      up to date. As our readership has grown there over the years, we
      realized that many were more than just Big Red customers. It was clear
      that we needed to find an outlet to talk about Android devices from
      AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint as well, without disrupting the flow.
      Enter Android Life.” From the android life page

        that site was the red-headed stepchild of the two. they updated it for a while, then it stopped updating for a long time, only to have a grand re-opening of sorts, and then to stop updating it again a few months later (in may of last year i guess), and that was the end of it. it made more sense at the time, since this was dedicated to verizon (because they had the only real android devices in the beginning), but ultimately wasn’t anywhere near as popular or updated as this site. most of the big news in the android world was put on this site anyway, so it was just a matter of time. but i’ve been around for the whole shebang here, and it’s nice that it’s just one site here at DL.. or like kellex says, until george lucas sues and they move everything over to AL haha.

    • sagisarius

      looks like Droid Life got broadened… though I think that happened like a year ago

      • Benjamin Mackie

        See thats what I loved about Droid life over other sites like phandroid, it was kinda carrier specific

        • sagisarius

          Ha, I guess I’m one of the people that started reading it because it wasn’t. They could really do that whole thing with tags though… like a vzw for anything Werizon specific.

        • BaconEater

          people still read phandroid? =P

    • andrew galvin

      i didn’t even know an.droid-life.com was a thing…

    • Mack

      an.droid-life.com was killed off and all news regarding android was merged with the main site. Droid Life still covers all things Droid and Verizon just with the addition of news from the rest of the Android/Google world, and other big tech stuff sprinkled in as well. I’ve been following this site for almost three years and honestly I welcomed the change when it happened. The site was started because of the original Motorola Droid and has grown from there.

      So glad they didn’t stick to strictly Verizon phones. I’d have moved on long ago if they did (in fact, I did for a while since I was in love with Android, not Verizon; since DL moved away from Verizon exclusivity I’m back).

    • trwb

      Well Verizon does suck, and many Android fans are beginning to move way from Verizon. They need to keep up with the times.
