Samsung to release white Google Nexus


Colour variant of the first phone to run off the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system to go on sale on February 13

Samsung is to release a white variant of the Google Nexus smartphone in the UK from February 13.

The handset, which is the first to feature the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, will be available in all major retailers. The phone originally went on sale in the UK November.

The Google Nexus is powered by a 1.2GHz processor and boasts a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen and five megapixel camera.

It also supports NFC and features Face Unlock, which uses facial recognition to unlock the device.

Samsung UK and Ireland telecommunications and networks division managing director Simon Stanford said: “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.”
