White Nexus 4 announced, no LG Nexus 5
The LG Nexus 4, Android’s flagship phone, is going to get a white paint job this week, starting with Hong Kong on the 29th. The new color option will slowly roll out in select markets worldwide, and the price is expected to be the same.
Too bad, the refresh that we were expecting is no where in sight — the 4G LTE and 32GB variants.
On the other side of things, LG closes the idea of having to make future Nexuses, stating that ‘it added no value to them’. That basically says that there will be no LG Nexus 5 or whatsoever.
With LG crossed out of the list, the candidate for the next Nexus manufacturer is still blurry. We have a discussion here on who should make the next Google Nexus if you want to check it out.
