As seen in the listing, the co-manufactured smartphone dubbed the Nexus 4 will be available in two colour options – black and white.

As per the report on GSMArena, “The rumors that the next Nexus device is going to be LG-made, got yet more backing today as an LG Nexus 4 was spotted in Carphone Warehouse’s inventory listing. In fact we’ve got two different items in the list – one for each of the available color versions. Of course, the listing could be simply a placeholder, inspired by the previous rumors and might not mean anything.”
