On sale beginning in Hong Kong, to follow in Asia, Europe, Middle East and North America in coming weeks
The Unicorn that suddenly thrust itself into public view in recent weeks is now officially official. LG has announced that the white variant of the Nexus 4 will be released to the world on May 29 in Hong Kong. After this, in the “coming weeks” we shall see it roll out globally, though no specific dates are available for other regions at this point.
And that’s about all she wrote. The white Nexus 4 still comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and there’s no mention of any new storage options or even where we’ll be able to buy it. Since this announcement has come from LG and not Google, there’s a possibility — at least to begin with — that this isn’t Play Store bound. If it doesn’t get into the Play Store, we’re not likely to see this version hit the same price point as the black one, so we’ll keep our collective fingers crossed on that one.
