White Google Nexus 4 sets foot in India via e-retailers

LG and Google may not have announced the white Nexus 4 in India, but that has certainly not stopped some e-retailers in the country from putting it up on sale for a price of Rs 25,990. The device went official merely a few hours ago and is slated to be released tomorrow in Hong Kong. It plans to embark on a journey to various other countries in Asia, North America and Middle East as well.

The white Google Nexus 4 by LG hasn’t been completely drenched into this shade and its front side continues to wear a black-colored garb. Thus, apart from the rear panel, the entire device including its internal components remain exactly the same as the regular variant. As opposed to the rumors that suggested it will be loaded with the Android 4.3 OS, it takes advantage of Jelly Bean 4.2.

Measuring 133.9 x 68.7 x 9.1 millimeters, the candy bar phone tips the scales at 139 grams and accommodates a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus touchscreen on the front. Considering that the Corning Gorilla Glass 2-reinforced display is accompanied by a 1.3MP HD webcam, potential buyers can easily make face-to-face conference calls over the web.

And what’s more, an 8MP camera with LED flash is in place for those who wish to capture high-resolution images and decent-quality videos. The device attributes its ability to multitask effortlessly to a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor that manages to tick at a speed of 1.5GHz. There’s 2GB of RAM and 16GB onboard memory, but no option to expand the latter due to a lack of a microSD card slot.

The smartphone can be expected to cough up juice for talk time of about 12 hours and standby time that lasts for about 24 days, thanks to a 2100mAh lithium-polymer battery. Apart from the common connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack, it tags along NFC support for transferring data to and from any compatible gadget with a single tap.

The White Google Nexus 4 is currently up for sale unofficially through e-stores like Flipkart and Saholic for the aforementioned price.
