While people are still struggling to get their hands on the current, black Nexus 4, it seems LG is secretly working on a white version of the device. Both the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus were released in white variants, so it wouldn’t be too surprising if LG decides to follow suit with the Nexus 4. That may very well happen if an image provided to Phone Arena is any indication. The photo reveals the backside of what’s purportedly the white Nexus 4.
Other than the white casing, a chrome LED flash ring appears to be the only difference between it and the standard black model. The device’s unique holographic stipple pattern can be made out near the bottom, but it’s still hard to say whether we’re seeing the real deal here. It could easily be a custom third-party backplate, for example.
Even so, EXIF data suggests the photo was taken by a Korean Optimus G, so it’s at least feasible that this could have been snapped by a sly LG employee.
