LG Announces White Nexus 4, Talks Nexus 5

Updated on

LG introduced the White Nexus 4 smartphone on Tuesday. It’s essentially the same Nexus 4 handset only this one has a white shell rather than a classic black shell but it’s not completely white. The side edges and the panel on the back are white.However, the glass on the front face is still black.

Unfortunately, LG didn’t explain why it took them six months later to launch the white Nexus 4 smartphone.

LG Announces White Nexus 4, Talks Nexus 5

At the phone launch, the executives for LG talked about the upcoming Nexus 5 and it created a little bit of confusion for some. Won Kim (European’s LG Mobile vice president) explained to AllAboutPhones, “”The Nexus 4 was a great success despite the production problems for us and Google. However we do not need such a marketing success again.” Kim also explained that his company didn’t really have any desire to produce a phone that could run a clean version of Android operating system. He used Samsung’s Galaxy S4 as an example. He added, “There is no added value for us (to make phones) without our own skins.”

Some people thought Kim meant that LG didn’t want to release the Nexus 5 phone next year. Fortunately, that was all cleared up when the company released a statement which said, “What Mr. Won Kim said, is that we are not currently working on a Nexus 5, which is true. But that doesn’t mean we would turn down the opportunity.”

LG Nexus 4 features:

The white Nexus 4 features LTE, A 4.7 inch in-plane LCD screen with 1280 x 768 pixels, 8 megapixel camera, and a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The smartphone can connect to  HSPA+ networks throughout the world. Within the next few weeks, the new Nexus 4 will come out in Asia, North America, Middle East, and Europe. It will debut in Hong Kong first.

LG’s latest offering should create a little bit more interest for the company.
