Nexus 4 now available in White, still no LTE, Nexus 5 not happening

By -

LG has launched a new White model (Vanilla White) for the Nexus 4, for those who didn’t prefer buying or like the Black model. Of course the features, functions and specifications all remain the same.

The Nexus 4 boasts a 4.7 inch screen with the resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and the pixel density of 320 ppi. Inside Nexus 4, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2 GB RAM and 8GB / 16GB of storage. LG said that the white Nexus 4 will start shipping in Hong Kong on May 29, tomorrow. It will be available in other select few markets like North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East in the next few weeks.

The one feature that LG had left out when Nexus 4 was originally introduced was LTE, and no, it still doesn’t feature in the model launched today. And unfortunately, there won’t be a Nexus 5 which could have featured LTE, as was confirmed by Vice President of LG, Won Kim. He told All About Phones, a Dutch tech website, “There are currently no plans for a Nexus 5 made by us. We don’t need that kind of marketing exposure anymore. The Nexus 4 was a great success, even with the supply issues and we have a great relationship with Google. But we won’t make the Nexus 5.

However, another spokesperson from LG spoke with TNW, and said that Kim’s comments were misinterpreted, “What Mr. Won Kim said is that we are not currently working on a Nexus 5, which is true. But that doesn’t mean we would turn down the opportunity.” which means that while LG may not work on a Nexus 5 but that doesn’t mean that this is the end of the partnership between LG and Google. The device could be another amazing phone or a tablet, it difficult to predict.
