It seems that with white-adorned smartphones, when it rains, it pours. After months and months of delays, the white iPhone 4 is nearly upon us, and earlier today we caught wind of a white edition of the dual-core Optimus 2X. The latest to get the whitewash treatment looks like it could be Google’s Nexus S, as evidence has surfaced in Germany showing what appears to be the premiere Gingerbread phone in white.
Unlike the iPhone 4 and the images we’ve seen of the white Optimus 2X, the Nexus S looks like it will be keeping the black bezel. Like a black-and-white cookie, the front half of the phone will stay the same as in the original Nexus S, while the rear of the phone’s body, through halfway across the edges, will be painted lily white.
Admittedly, from an aesthetic standpoint we may have preferred an all-white Nexus S over this halfway version, but it’s still a nice option to have. Keeping the screen-half of the phone the same should make manufacturing easier, and may help alleviate some of the light-leakage problems that have supposedly plagued the iPhone 4.
If these images are accurate, Germany can hope to get the white Nexus S in the near future, but there’s no word yet on the handset making its way to other markets. If Google is going to sell it elsewhere, it had better hurry up while the Nexus S is still enjoying its moment in the sun.
