Yesterday, we caught a glimpse of an alleged white Nexus 4. While we initially questioned its legitimacy, we ultimately walked away assuming that it was indeed the real deal. However, the question was: is this going to become a thing, or is it simply a prototype?

While today's leak can't really help us answer that question, it does give us a very good look at what the white Nexus 4 has to offer. And by that, I mean how damn sexy it is.

There's no denying these shots – they're absolutely convincing. And it's freakin' pretty. With that said, there are some oddities about the following images:

You notice it? Yeah – that funky lockscreen. We're still not calling "fake!" on this, however, because that's probably just an app. Widgetlocker (or a similar app) perhaps? More than likely, I'd say.

Update: As pointed out several times in the comments, the lockscreen is GoLocker with the default theme.

Naturally, we don't have any other details about this mysterious device – no availability info, price, nothing. If it does get released to the public, it's probably safe to assume it'll be available through the same channels and for the same price as the existing Nexus 4. Guess time will tell.

    looks like MIUI lockscreen

    • http://jordanhotmann.com/ Jordan Hotmann

      Agreed, MIUI or GoLocker

  • http://turbofool.com Jarrett Lennon Kaufman

    Please: alongside this new color option, can we get a 32GB option as well?

      My life would be sorted out for the next 2 years with one. XD

      • http://turbofool.com Jarrett Lennon Kaufman

        Seriously. Nexus phones, thanks to updates, stay relevant a lot longer. Give me reasonable space and I could definitely keep it a couple years.

        • Ian Douglas

          I've never come close to using up the 8GB on the last few Nexus devices. Simple maintenance stuff like moving videos/photos off the device, and streaming, heck I bet I could get away with 2GB of storage.

          • http://turbofool.com Jarrett Lennon Kaufman

            Cool. I have 48GB in my SGSII and have only about 9GB free. I could improve that, but not to anything that would make 8GB livable. 16 would push it. My 8GB Nexus 7 had to get turned in for a 32 fast. So I'd rather, when stuck without expandable storage, have breathing room.

    • Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

      I sincerely hope so.

    Looks like the MIUI lockscreen ...

  • Paul_Werner

    Should be nice if people just sell the back cover since you can just take out the two screws and put them back after the back is replaced

    • Elias

      Current N4's edge is black. Black edge + white back = even more fugly.
      Seriously, the front has to be black because the screen is black when turned off. Thus, everything must be black.

      • Paul_Werner

        I agree with you but some people will like this so as I was saying, it should be nice if people sell the back cover online

  • McLean Riley

    Why do companies still sell two-toned phones? Am I the only one that thinks they look ridiculous? I guess I am, but the OG Evo white looked off to me. This does too.

    • itznfb

      I have a white Razr HD and the black back on it makes it look so cheap. It's not as bad though since the face is white and I just put a cover over the back so it looks normal.

  • moelsen8

    Ships in 1-2 years.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HenriqueMelissopoulos Henrique Melissopoulos

    I think it's the GoLocker lock screen.

  • http://twitter.com/HumbertoZero Humberto Hernandez

    White back and black front? AWESOME, SEXY, HOT, COOL! I WANT IT! =D

    And the lockscreen, i bet it's Widgetlocker

    • Mack

      Agreed. Why does everybody want an all white phone? The front looks terrible in white and takes away from the super clean look when the screen is off.

  • http://aayush.me/ Aayush Arya

    That's the default GO Locker lock screen. There's nothing funky about it.

  • Samvith V Rao

    Can't wait not to get mine 6 weeks after I order it m/

  • Sorian

    Go Locker with a icon pack.

    Sparkle pearly white makes it look like a girls phone.

    • Joe

      Agreed, best suited for those with vaginas.

      • Reginald Spence II

        Or manginas.

        • Joe


  • RocketScience11

    That background is the default theme on golauncherex and the lockscreen theme is the default for golocker.

  • http://twitter.com/Bl4ckpheniX aaron nyquist

    Not sure why they went white on the back and black on the front... I hope they make enough of them so they have a better stock pile when they decide to start selling them.

  • lagnis

    How will the grey bumper case look on this?

  • Joe

    I don't like it, they can keep it. Maybe ok for women though...

  • Kamil RomaƄski

    Finally I can try to buy one :-D loving white Nexus devices:-D

  • http://profiles.google.com/marcusleejh Marcus Lee

    White back, black front is a fail...

  • http://twitter.com/MrShinrow Geoffrey Skularec

    Well, usually I'm not a fan of white devices but this one looks really cool!

  • http://profiles.google.com/atlbaird Evan Anderson

    Maybe my eyes are broke but doesn't that look a little wide to be the N4?

    • fixxmyhead

      your eyes are not broken there retarded

      • cosmic

        Just a bit of advice, when you're going to call someone retarded you may want to use the right form of they're/there/their. In this case the correct one would be their.

        • fixxmyhead


  • Aku

    White back with a black front? They couldn't complete the look or just got lazy? Looks really bad in my opinion.

  • MrHaroHaro

    Wish the front was white too, then I'd be all over it like egg on a bowl of bibimbap.

  • krim

    I want that cake

  • Bleakvision

    I got mine yesterday, and now you are making me feel bad again?

  • Abhigyan

    Is it just me, or does that textured backside look way more awesome in white?

  • Elias

    Some digital media hoarders (like myself) who already got a N4 would be seriously pissed off. I just downgraded (in storage) from a 16gb+32gb Captivate to a measly 16gb N4 because there was no bigger option, contemplating the sour fate of having to buy a (gasp!) iPod for my media needs alone - N7 is not an option, I need portability and won't be satisfied with just 32gb since I'm forced to get a standalone device. Coming up with a bigger N4 option weeks or months after my purchase would probably make me go in a killing spree at Google's headquarters.

    • Elias

      Damn. That should be a reply to Jarrett, about the much desired 32gb N4.

  • a321152

    Did anyone noticed the delicious Tiramisu??? LOL! It made me hungry!

  • Ian Douglas

    Maybe the giveaway device for Google IO, since they love to give out exclusive white gear at the conference?

  • Hakim

    I got the black but reallly wan the white one now

  • michal

    I'll NEVER buy anything anymore from LG! Go to fuck with r that crap
