The white Nexus 4 is available in both 8GB and 16GB variants from Google Play for $299 (£197) and $349, respectively, which is the same pricing as the original black version, but Google Play is offering a complimentary bumper case with every purchase.

T-Mobile's white Nexus 4 costs $428 for the 16GB version, and the carrier is currently not offering a bonus bumper with purchase. 

Aside from the new colour scheme and bumper on Google Play, this white Android device is identical to the black Nexus 4 released in November 2012.
