If you've been waiting to get your hands on the white Nexus 4, wait no longer (if you're in the US, that is) - it's on the Play Store right now, and it comes with a free matching white bumper case. Both 8GB and 16GB models are available, with the same pricing as the black version. Black models of the Nexus 4 are also now shipping with free bumper cases for a 'limited time,' so if you were on the fence about an N4, now's probably the time to buy.

Hit up the links below to check it out. If you're looking for the Nexus 4 in black with a free bumper, navigate to it from the links to the white ones below - the Play Store is still caching the old product page for the black ones if you navigate there manually. You can also get the 16GB white Nexus 4 on T-Mobile's website for $427.99 (try link in Chrome incognito if it doesn't work for you), if you're feeling like making a bad decision today.

    Will someone please tell LG that this is not a white phone.

    • Justin Crowley

      so true
      if you are going to release a white phone, please make the entire device white, i do not want a phone that is 2/3 of an Oreo cookie

      • Haunter

        I have a white Galaxy Nexus and really like the black face (though didn't think I would when considering buying it). Much like 95% of TV have black borders, the black face really helps when watching media or prolonged usage.

    • TY

      More like Google's decision. See Nexus One, Nexus S, and Galaxy Nexus.

      • Bloodflame87

        Except one thing: There never was a white Nexus One

    • QwietStorm

      What is it? Green?

      • David Fleck

        That is a two tone, black phone with a white back. This is a white phone:

        • YeP

          I must agree with y'all now that I've seen the direct comparison

        • redthunda69

          But that phone has silver on the side... It must not be white!

    • patapongirl

      This is the PERFECT white phone - no stupid awkward looking white frame when the screen is off.

      And no distracting display when the screen is on too

    Also: The time says 4:23.

    4.2.3 confirmed! ...I guess.

    • Matt

      Hmmm I wonder. Didn't paul_socio say that the next Android version was relatively minor and that apart from the camera settings, it was mainly bugfixes (Bluetooth stuff, etc.)? Maybe they decided 4.3 was too big of a jump.

      • quiro91

        BT 4.0 still need a new API

        • soylent

          Not true, as the Nexus 4 already has BT4.

          • jknl


            Not true... nexus 4 hase the hardware but android doent nativly suporred BT4.

            This means that it is not as power efficient and its slower at transferring files.

            Because the android has old drivers build in to it.

            All phone companies like samsung,htc..... make there own BT4 api

            google is stil working on the BT 4 api.

      • YeP

        Not gonna get excited until I see 5. 0 with hopefully major changes. It better come around the time that ios 7 is released with the new iPhone. Hopefully that will also launch a new official Nexus with a much better camera, speakers, LTE at the same 300-350 pricing

      Stir the pot Ron... ;)

    • chandradithya

      Meanwhile at google?

    • Drayon

      But why do current screenshots show 4:20 instead of 4:22 then?

    • Nasko Hristov

      Clearly, shame I was expecting at least 4.3

    • RitishOemraw

      Well, technically it is in line with the rumors that the next update is still Jellybean and not KLP


  • http://www.ScienceProUSA.com SciencePro

    Confusing decision...get this phone or pay twice as much for the HTC One? I told myself that my next phone would have LTE, but $599 is a lot to swallow.

    • Matt

      Just compare the pros and cons. With the HTC One, you've got better low light photography, battery life, storage, and data speeds for the duration of your phone ownership. With the Nexus 4, you've got $300 extra in your pocket and more megapixels. Stock Android used to be a factor, but not really anymore.

      Depends how much you feel those benefits are worth, really...are they worth $300?

      • http://www.ScienceProUSA.com SciencePro

        It's also tough because my current phone is a Galaxy Nexus...the Nexus 4 is better, but not *that* much better. The One would surely be a more worthwhile upgrade, but that price :-0

        • Haunter

          Dude... I am in the same boat. I have a white GNex, and have been considering buying a white N4 to replace it (since it was rumored to drop back in January). But, it really isn't THAT much an upgrade... and at this point, I've had to wait SO long for the thing, I might just sit out the extra 5 months for the inevitable Nexus that will drop in November (per typical Google cycle).

          • lewishnl

            Probably won't come in white at launch tho :P

          • Bloodflame87

            and then another 6 months ontop of that for it's respective white version.

        • Joshua Wise

          The N4 compared to the Galaxy Nexus is a huge jump, you may think spec-wise it's not. But just the feel of the device and speed of the OS makes it for me. - Plus I recently broke my N4 and had it repaired, I used my Galaxy Nexus in the meantime. Def. noticed a difference.

        • QwietStorm

          The Nexus 4 is *that* much better than the Galaxy.

        • Matt

          I switched from the Galaxy Nexus to the Nexus 4 around release. After selling the GNex on eBay, the total cost of the upgrade was ~$120 for the 16GB N4 with shipping/taxes. I would say it was very worth it for that price, but I probably wouldn't have done it if the difference had been $200. Then again, that's completely based on my sense of the upgrade value. See how much the GNex is going for on swappa/eBay and see whether it's worth it for you.

  • QwietStorm

    Oh so now these jackholes have enough bumpers and gumption to throw it in for free. Nice.

  • CraigM

    Would be nice if people who already purchased a Nexus 4 could get a bumper for free.

  • Krista Sanderson

    I want my twenty dolllars!

  • YeP

    Don't pay more for less on Tmobile. Not much of an UNcarrier charging customers higher prices yet again. I do wish manufacturers would release all colors at once. I realize they try to create new interest in older devices but its frustrating to consumers who may have wanted the new colors

  • iphoneluver

    How can I get android 4.2 on my iphone5?

  • gommer strike

    front should be white - why isn't it

    • patapongirl

      Coz the white frame around the screen looks stupid and is distracting.

  • Nick Tsiotinos

    As much as it looks really hot - I cannot justify spending $400 for it. Now if I didn't have the current Nexus 4.... My next nexus has to have some new technology (flexible / wrap around screen, extra long battery life, some other extraordinary functionality) as it stands - my Nexus 4 has pretty much everything I need at the moment - it is plenty fast enough and pretty much answered all of the criticisms of the previous nexus. As for the HTC and Samsung camps - meh....
