White Nexus 4 and Android 4.3 reportedly slated for June 10

Android logoIt's fair to say that we didn't get everything we wanted to out of Google's marathon opening-day keynote yesterday. Persistent rumors pointed to a possible refresh for last year's Nexus 7 tablet and small tweaks to the Nexus 4. And Android 4.3 was very briefly outed on one of Google's own product pages yesterday.

None of this actually happened—yet some rumors die hard. Android and Me reports that it was able to lay hands on a white version of the Nexus 4 at Google I/O and that the phone would be available in the Google Play store on June 10. The phone's hardware is otherwise identical to the black Nexus 4 that has been available (or not available) from Google Play since last November, but the new version of the phone will also apparently bring us the Android 4.3 update that we missed yesterday.

Specifics about the next version of Android have been hard to come by. Speculation points to the inclusion of some new Bluetooth features and support for OpenGL ES 3.0 but otherwise we haven't heard much. Even the low-key Android 4.2 update came with plenty of small features and tweaks, though. In the event that the new operating system actually comes to pass this time, expect us to take an in-depth look at it as soon we can.
