Coming soon: white Nexus 4 with Android 4.3

Coming soon: white Nexus 4 with Android 4.3I’m starting to think there’s some sort of conspiracy with new stuff. Where’s the Nokia EOS? And the Motorola X-Phone? And the Google Nexus 7 refresh? And the 32GB Google Nexus 4? And Android 4.3?

Well, we have the answer to at least one of those. Android 4.3 is tipped to accompany a white Nexus 4 to Google Play on June 10.

That’s the story according to Android and Me, who’ve “obtained” a white Nexus 4 at Google I/O.

Actually, the white Google Nexus 4 raises more questions than it answers. I mean, if it’s coming to Google Play in a few weeks, why wasn’t it officially shown off at I/O? Same with Android 4.3.

And what storage options will it offer? Are the white Google Nexus 4 and the 32GB LTE-friendly Nexus 4 one and the same? Or will the former stick with 8GB and 16GB?

In any case, externally, the white Google Nexus 4 is said to be identical to the black version, just with a different coloured rear.

As for Android 4.3, it’ll be Jelly Bean again, and it’s thought to be a relatively minor update. Key Lime Pie will presumably be the big dealio, rocking Android 5.0 numbering.

There’s no specific word on a UK release for the white Google Nexus 4, but we imagine Blighty will get a few boxes or so.

It's not often that I say this, but that must be one of the 5 ugliest backs in the gadget universe!
It looks like the back of a free Hello Kitty mirror for the Little Princess Within ®

Jan, what did Emma say about getting Ahmad Mod privileges? Definitely worth it, IMO.

I have to say, the nexus 4 is amazingly uncomfortable to hold I find when I picked one up in the shop the other day, the back and edges don't make it sit comfortably in my hand i find

True. I thought the same.
A different colour is not going to change that.
It's also not going to fix the abysmal camera.

Or battery life.

if it was cost decision regarding the camera, they might as well have not included one on the back, that's how rubbish it is.
or even better, should have done what the Chinese do with their devices and put a nice big camera on the front instead. A smaller N7 which can make calls :)
