Just few days back we reported about Nokia Lumia 929 coming to Verizon in the US in white and black colors. We have already seen the image of the device in black, its time for the white version of the device. @evleaks today posted the above image.
Nokia Lumia 929 for Verizon is said to be a variant of AT&T’s Nokia Lumia 1520. Lumia 929 will feature a 1080p display, 20MP camera, Qualcomm Quad core processor and more similar to Lumia 1520. The major difference between the two devices should be the screen size. While AT&T’s Lumia 1520 is a 6-inch phablet, Verizon’s Lumia 929 is said to be a 5-inch device.
The device is expected to be launched on November 6th with contract price of $200.
HTC tweeted the above picture, depicting what appears to be a white HTC 8x.Â The handset is currently only available in Black, Blue and Yellow, making it the first appearance of this colour in the wild.
It is not known if this colour will be released to market or not, but I think our readers will agree it is rather fetching.
ESPhoneblog.com have received a credible tip suggesting the white Nokia Lumia 800, which Phones4U is claiming as an exclusive in UK, will be arriving in stock on March 6th.
The handset is available for pre-order from here, so if a frosty handset to match the snow outside is our thing, get in virtual line now.
Nokia has posted a press release for the White Nokia Lumia 800:
Espoo, Finland – Nokia announced today that the Nokia Lumia 800 will be available in white, beginning later this month.

When asked Swiss phone retailer MobileZone said the “glossy white” Nokia Lumia 800 will be hitting their shelves in mid-February 2012. See the email exchange below:

Thank youÂ for your inquiry.
WeÂ expected toÂ beÂ fromÂ the NokiaÂ LumiaÂ glossy whiteÂ in colorÂ about receivedÂ in mid-February.
Interestingly a similar enquiry to Swisscom, the largest carrier in Switzerland, recieved a negative response – they will only stocking the cyan and black handsets.
It seems if you were waiting for a glossy white handset the wait will not be long.
Thanks Hypi for the tip.
Francesco has tipped us off to evidence of a white Nokia Lumia 800 in the works.
The device appears to be listed as one of the possible firmware types in the Nokia Lumia Updates app, which browses Nokiaâ€™s database of available firmware.
Nokia has teased the white device before, and it does have a certain charm.
It will probably be released in a second wave in a few months time.
Thanks Francesco for the tip.
