This is what the white Galaxy Nexus looks like

This morning UK retailer Clove gives us our first proper look at the white Samsung Galaxy Nexus, with some real, official promotional images. You might notice it's a bit different to the picture that was doing the rounds previously -- turns rival retailer MobileFun fudged things yesterday and used a fan render on their site rather than an official photo.

In any case, what you see above is in fact what'll start shipping in the UK during the week commencing Feb. 6. Clove's asking price for the white Nexus is £500 (~$780), which is about the same as you'll pay for the black version in the UK right now.

  • OMG another Half and Half mess!
  • Exactly. ALL WHITE, or nothing.
  • No thanks. Perhaps they could provide a black back cover to really re-enforce the Ice Cream Sandwich theme.
  • So tired of them half assing these white phones. The Oreo/icecream sandwich theme sounds cool though. That's how I have my white evo.
  • I am sorry, but that is sexy!
  • Now they need to sell this one in a 32GB variant and hopefully the back cover can be replaced by a black version (if there sold seperate).
  • If Sprint is going to release the Galaxy Nexus, they should also release the white version. Please Sprint?
  • Wouldn't matter to me because my case would be covering the back and you would never know.
  • I'm not much for white phones but that's pretty sexy.
  • That's one sexy phone! ;-)
  • That phone does not look good at all. It should be all white or not at all.
  • Exactly!
  • Blah, I'll stick with my black and grey Verizon version. Just wish i had a proper vehicle mount with pogo connecters. Tell me when that's coming out.
  • Im Feeling the white look!
  • I'm not feeling this one. Then again, I thought the white Nexus S looked bad until I saw an actual picture of the phone (not an advertising render), after which I thought it looked awesome.
  • I was hoping tge first would be white to beacuse i have a case and wont see thr back
  • why cant they offer some deep colors rather than white all the time. perhaps a burgundy, steel amethyst, brush metal silver. white is so.... bland.
  • Looks a lot like the 3GS. But I like it. I still prefer the original color scheme though. I'd actually prefer an all black version over my dark grey.
  • I agree all black would be better, but Samsung is probably sick of Apple who would probably try to sue them and say they have a patent on the color black.
  • White phones are a visual eyesore.
  • Yuck, I don't get it. Best case scenario is that it shows all your palm grease everytime you hold it, worst case is that it yellows over time on it's own.
  • Darn, I am going to get the GN but now they announce a 32GB version and a white version...kinda spoils my fun and makes me consider putting it off.
  • i know its not all white but i think that looks damn good...the nexus s in white was the same and it looks good in person.
  • Meh, no thanks. I don't think this looks good at all.
  • It's not bad, but it's not great. I wanna see an all black one. As far as the bezel being black, they shoulda let the fans vote. It probably looks better in person tho.
  • I hate black bezels on white phones. Please see the iphone 4s on what a white version is supposed to look like.
  • OMG - it look like a marine mammal!
  • Cmon Alex, you should know better than this. People outside Europe won't pay the VAT, so it won't be $780 for us. It'll be about $650.
  • When it comes to phones I really don't want one side one color and the other another color
