LG Debuts Nexus 4 Smartphone in White
The Nexus 4 White will roll out globally in select markets in Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East over the next several weeks.Consumer electronics manufacturer LG Electronics announced the launch of Nexus 4 White, the latest edition of the Android-based smartphone the company developed in collaboration with Google. Starting in Hong Kong on May 29, the Nexus 4 White will roll out globally in select markets in Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East over the next several weeks, a company release said. The Nexus 4 White comes with a 4.7-inch 1280-by-768 True HD IPS Plus display (320ppi) supported by Zerogap Touch technology, and runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of random access memory (RAM). "Nexus 4 set the standard for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smartphones," Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Mobile Communications, said in a statement. "Nexus 4 White delivers the same Google experience to consumers in a stylish and attractive color option."
Due to the smartphone’s popularity, LG has had trouble keeping up with demand, as reports surfaced this January that production issues were squeezing supply. Although official sales figures are not available from Google or LG, LG described estimates of 375,000 devices sold by January 2013 as being "a lot lower than the actual figure".
