If a sexy smartphone dressed all in white gets you excited, then February has some treats in store for you. In addition to the white Nokia Lumia 800, which is set to make its debut in Europe by the end of this month, we’re also set to see a white Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the U.K. on February 13.
We first heard about this device in early January, when British retailer Clove began pre-orders. But today Samsung has made it official. Like other white devices from the Korean company, the front panel remains black, while the rest of the handset has been given a lick of white paint. And it looks pretty nice, I must say.
Simon Stanford, Samsung U.K.’s telecommunications executive, said that the company’s white devices have previously been a huge success:
“After much speculation, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Galaxy Nexus White which follows the great reception the phone has received since it was launched back in November.
”One of the things we at Samsung pride ourselves on is the choice we offer customers, and we’ve enjoyed huge success to date by introducing white variants of our most popular models to our product portfolio.”
Internally, the white Galaxy Nexus is identical to its black counterpart. That includes a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. All of which is powered by Google’s latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The device will be available with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, and as it’s heading to the U.K., it’ll feature GSM connectivity as opposed to LTE.
There’s no word on pricing from Samsung just yet, however, Clove has been offering the 16GB device for £489 (approx. $774) since January.
