It’s hard enough to get your hands on a black Nexus 4 nowadays, what with Google’s seriously back-ordered stock, but even in this situation, rumors continue to arrive of a new Nexus 4 model waiting for us just over the horizon. After first hearing such talk of a white Nexus 4 about a month ago, talk of the handset is making its return today, thanks to one retailer opening pre-orders for the white Nexus 4.
There’s an interesting UK component to all this; that earlier white Nexus 4 leak came courtesy of British retailer Carphone Warehouse, and today’s find is similarly from an English company, this time TalkTalk. The company is offering a bundle deal, consisting of the Nexus 7 tablet and a white Nexus 4 phone. According to TalkTalk, it expects to get such devices in stock by December 13.
Our first instinct might be that this was little more than an oversight – an employee pulling up the wrong database entry when creating the bundle, inadvertently referencing the once-expected-but-never-announced white Nexus 4. On the other hand, this page has been attracting a lot of attention today, and its offer remains unchanged; if this was truly a mistake, we’d hope that TalkTalk would have fixed things by now.
Even if a white Nexus 4 really is expected, there’s apparently not yet any imagery available of the handset, as TalkTalk displays a front-view of the Nexus 4 that looks like the same old black version.
Honestly, this one feels like it’s on the “not very” side of likely, but we’re willing to be surprised. Will Google have a nice treat waiting for us in mid-December? Time will tell.
