At this point, this one online retailer has leaked more information than we have space on the internet to put it. This time, the inventory system that previously leaked the name of the Nexus 4 is showing with color options and a price tag in tow. Apparently this device will cost £389 without a SIM. For our American readers, the exchange rate would bring that out to about $628, though we imagine they'll massage the number a bit by the time it hits the states.

We also see that there will apparently be a white version to go along with the black. No word yet on just how they're going to prevent the glare on the sequin-covered, glass-encased, white phone from burning off the retinas of passerby, but my overactive sarcasm gland has been informed by sources within the rest of my brain that it will probably actually look pretty alright.

It is worth pointing out, in the interest of skepticism, that we've already had one leak today from Carphone Warehouse with some less than reliable screenshots. In general, we have better luck getting accurate info from the company's internal system, but we wouldn't suggest removing your tinfoil hats just yet. This is, after all, one of the most hoax filled seasons yet.

One thing's for sure, though. Monday can't come soon enough. Also, that's the first time anyone's ever written that sentence.

    Once NexusSeason is over, you guys should write a wrap-up of all the rumours as they surfaced, the hoaxes, your interpretations versus reality, etc. I think that'd be interesting.

    The trouble is, CPW won't sell you a SIM free handset while they are popular on contract. Your better off going to Clove.

    • grellanl

      Dunno, I've bought a few off-contract devices from CPW (GNex, S3) and they didn't put up much of a fight. Clove are good though. Hopefully they're planning to sell them direct on the Play Store too.

    Windows 98???

      Server 2000 maybe?

      It's Windows XP using the Classic theme.

    I'm mostly curious to see an Optimus G vs. Nexus 4 comparison. One of the main differences I'm noticing other than typical lack of SD card is with the capacitive buttons. The G seems to have capacitive buttons at the very bottom, leaving the entire LCD for usable screen space, where the Nexus has on-screen buttons, taking away those extra 20 pixels at the bottom and leaving a large dead space under the LCD. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    • Josh Nichols

      There's a notification LED under the LCD.

      • wolfkabal

        That still leaves a lot of dead space though..

    Don't you thinks a bit odd that they have black and white yet there should surely be two of each, 8GB and 16GB as that's what over leaks have made clear? maybe carphone warehouse has jumped the gun and doesn't have the full details in there database or this is just a hoax?

    • jrdj7

      I have thought all along its fishy. From when they leaked the Nexus 4 name. The webpage that was up earlier must have been a place holder/mock-up that was not meant to go live. And the lack of 16GB/32GB is strange again.

      Lets hope this is all a double bluff by Google and there will after all be multiple Nexus's. They asked Carphone Warehouse to do this to prevent more speculation/leaks.
      One can only dream ;__;

    If the employee doing the leaks is reading this, thanks but be careful! :)

      Yea chris need to watch his back!

  • Doctor

    Since when did Android Police follow rumors? I follow this site instead of places like CNET to AVOID unofficial 'news'.

  • Lee

    I think i would get the white one when its released. Never owned a white phone before (smart or dumb phone) lol

  • OSagnostic

    UK advertised prices include 20% VAT. So US price would be $522 before taxes.

    For comparison, how much is a S3 in similar conditions? (no Sim, etc)

    Damn Chris you gonna be in troouubbllee..lmao

    Chris you gonna be im troouubbllee!! lmao

  • Ben Baranovsky

    389 GBP seems quite steep. I think the price is going to be closer to $400 or $450.

    • Jameslepable

      Are you serious. I bought the gnexus last year for £530 day of release. If this is its price I may be buying it 6 months eailer than anticipated.

      • Ben Baranovsky

        In comparison to what the GNex costs now, this is steep. I bought my GNex for a similar price.

        • Jameslepable

          Seriously the gnex is a year old. The gnex is dirt cheap atm. If the nexus 4 is as cheap as the gnex is now any buyers count your blessings. That will be incredibly aggressive pricing imo.

          • Ben Baranovsky

            Exactly. I'm hoping they start out with aggressive pricing this time.

      • Ben Baranovsky

        Just thought I would come back here to say the very cliche "I was right and you were wrong" phrase. I'm assuming that the $350 ($300 starting price) price is something we can both be happy about.

  • john

    Do you guys think this is worth me going through the trouble of selling my iPhone 5 to get this? I do like iOS but I've been really disappointed with this shit. Looking to try the android world!

    • Michael J Carroll

      Nexus phones are pure Android. Samsung provides an easy to use interface that appeals more to those new to the Android environment, but I prefer to have pure Android. Try going to a T Mobile store and try both of the phones.
