A new white version of the LG Nexus 4 was recently spotted on the internet.
A Google+ user named Ervin Sue posted pictures of this new model that features a white glossy backing. Sue claims he purchased the smartphone from "a local buy and sell site." The white Nexus 4 has made appearances in earlier leaks, but this one differs as its backing has a white Crystal Reflective Process back and white sides with a black trim around the display.
A white Nexus 4 popped up on a Vietnamese site Tinh te back in January, but this version had a duller back plate. It did not resemble the stock back plate found on the current version of the LG Nexus 4. It is not clear if LG will officially launch the device in the color, however, it could end up debuting at Google I/O later this month.
Google is also rumored to be introducing a new version of the LG Nexus 4 with 32GB of memory and full LTE connectivity.
LG was originally expected to release a 5-inch version of the Nexus with some spec updates, but a report from Android Community claims an updated 4-inch version launching. The site took the news with a grain of salt, but feels it's quite plausible since the Nexus 4 is still fairly new having launched in October. The Galaxy Nexus had a similar run launching around that same time in 2011. A new Nexus smartphone will probably arrive in the fall of this year instead.
The current LG Nexus 4 features dormant and disabled 4G LTE radios that have been hacked to work in Canada and with a few select AT&T users. Google could be working with the carriers to enable this LTE functionality while simultaneously introducing the next major build of Android. The rumor points to Verizon releasing this 32GB version with LTE running the latest version of Android.
