White Nexus 4 is no more
Mark this day in your calendar. The LG-made Google Nexus 4 in white is dead. Gone. Finished. Over.
Before you act all surprised, know that apparently it was a ‘limited edition’ all along. That’s right, such a common color was deemed something special by LG and Google. Special enough that there seems to have been only a limited production run for it.
And now it’s sold out. And that’s the end of it. Google has confirmed this to Android Police. Both the 8 GB and 16 GB versions of the white Nexus 4 are affected, and neither show up as available in the Play Store anymore.
So if you desperately wanted your Nexus 4 to be white, we hope you managed to get one before today. Otherwise, you’ll have to make do with the black version, which is obviously still up for grabs – surviving unharmed.
It’s unclear how many white Nexus 4 units were produced, but it’s pretty clear that this handset isn’t a best seller – and that was never its purpose.
You know what’s funny? The leaks about the white Nexus 4 went on for much longer than the time it spent being on sale.
