The LG Nexus 4 White has been officially announced, following months of speculations and rumors surrounding the smartphone.
The smartphone provides an alternative color for the handset, which has proven itself in the past to do well in terms of sales.
The white version of the Nexus 4 has the same specifications as the Nexus 4 Black. The black model, for its part, was announced last October, and released around a month after. It comes with a 4.7-inch True HD WXGA IPS Plus capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels and 320 ppi. This display panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Moreover, it has 8 or 16GB of storage space, 2GB of RAM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. It also comes with Android 4.2 out of the box, contradicting previous rumors that the Nexus 4 White will have a newer version of the OS.
As for connectivity, the smartphone comes with support for WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC (Android Beam), GSM/EDGE/GPRS, 3G, HSPA+ 42, Wireless charging, and SlimPort. Like the black version, the LG Nexus 4 White still does not support 4G LTE connectivity.
Meanwhile, on its front is a 1.3 MP camera while on its rear is an 8 MP one. Likewise, it offers an accelerometer, barometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, compass, GPS, and microphone.
Among the features of Google’s latest flagship smartphone are Voice Search with Knowledge Graph, the latest version of Google Now, Gesture Typing, the ability to capture PhotoSphere images and HD video, Instant Upload to Google+, a preinstalled photo editor, Google Wallet, and of course, access to Google Play.
The LG Nexus 4 White will hit the North American, Asian, European, and Middle Eastern markets in the coming weeks. In Hong Kong, the device will be available in stores as early as May 29.
In related news, a report on All About Phones says that according to their source, LG will not be making the Nexus 5 in the future. Traditionally, different companies have been tasked to build Google’s Nexus devices.
