Pictues, prices and launch dates for the white Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch


If black seems a little too bland for you, we’d like to introduce you to the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch — in white.  The new Frost White Epic 4G Touch will be available through all of Sprint’s retail channels on January 8th for $199.99 with the typical two-year contract and required $10 premium data add-on charge.  If you’re looking to save a little cash, don’t forget to check places like Amazon Wireless which currently features the black Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch for under $80.

Those of you looking for something a little more cutting edge might be more interested in the new white Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We don’t have an official launch date for the phone, but our friends over at Mobile Fun have informed us that they will be making it available on February 2nd for £519.95.

It’s nice that Samsung is giving consumers another color option. We just wish they would get their act together and give consumers the option when the phone launches rather than waiting a few month, forcing consumers to second guess their buying decision. Would any of you who already own either of these two devices consider selling your phone to pick up the white model?

    Being in a two year contract SUCKS! You get a nice phone and weeks later it’s obsolete! Gerrrrrr

    • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

      I know what you’re trying to say, but it bugs me when people use the word obsolete so much. If you’re phone was obsolete that would mean that it’s no longer being produced or that it is no longer capable of performing well in the current environment.

      Yes, there’s something new that’s now a little better than what you have, but unless you own the original HTC Hero or DROID, you’re phone is probably fa from being obsolete.

      -end mini rant.

      • LukeT32

        My DROID isn’t obsolete! CM7 is keeping it trucking. I was going to go upgrade next weekend and get the Nexus, but the white is pretty sharp….. uggghhh I do not want to wait any longer…

    • James

      Galaxy s2 isn’t obsolete after half a year (at least here in europe)

    • Randy

      Well i had the original droid and just recently got a galaxy nexus =D but my phone is WAY older than yours

  • YellowDucati

    This will be perfect for the wife.

  • dcdttu

    Just give me a Nexus on T-Mobile and I won’t care what color it is. It will at least have 3G reception, unlike it’s Verizon cousin.

    • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

      Just buy it from Europe. It’ll work on T-Mobile HSPA+ network.

  • triangle

    I guess it’s hard to get a white phone perfected. Look how long it took apple to release a white iphone 4.

    I agree that the manufacturers should just get their act together and offer more options upfront instead this silliness with more colors after launch.

  • JWesCampbell

    heck yeah i’d get the white nexus.

    • iamXiV92a

      DO WANT!

  • Joseph Banks

    next thing we’ll have a copper toned Galaxy Nexus….hmm, maybe that would help battery life

    • http://pixelswim.com Steve Heinrich

      I have the copper G1 stashed away… great color that copper.

  • Jeff Pan

    For women folks?

  • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

    I really love the white look of the Galaxy Nexus, but I think it looks a bit silly since the Android UI is now completely black. I wish Google would build in a skinnable layer for the UI that could be easily changed within the phone’s settings menu. come on Google, Microsoft offered that feature over a half decade ago!

  • stenzor

    The white looks like delicious vanilla ice cream. I’d probably eat my phone by accident if I had a white one.

    • James

      So the black one is blackcurrant?


  • http://pixelswim.com Steve Heinrich

    The white Galaxy Nexus would tickle my fancy… as long as it comes out before the next Nexus device.

  • Deter

    Glad i didn’t get this on launch date. I was holding off to see some reviews and save up a little cash. now i’ll be waiting a little longer to get a white one.

  • Julian Rafael1

    I need the white Galaxy Nexus to replace this white G2x! Really I was waiting on this. I love white phones. Now the best phone available is going to be white! Idc how much I have to pay.

  • Endymion

    Not sure what would be the point of having a nice white phone if you’re just planning to put it in a case. Still, thumbs up for more options!

    • http://pixelswim.com Steve Heinrich

      I don’t put my phones in cases… I like the natural wear and tear. Also, I generally don’t sell my phones. Plus, deep down inside I secretly hope they fall and break so I can justify getting a new device :)

    • iamXiV92a

      That’s why I have a white case on my white Skyrocket ^_^

  • uknowme

    Wow I hate to do this but the title should probably say “Pictures”.

  • Lazaro

    Need T-Mobile to make some sort of announcement for the Galaxy Nexus….how long is this verizon exclusive supposed to go for?

  • ArticulateFool

    That white nexus looks awesome!

    I would have purchased my nexus in white when I imported. If only it available at the time.

  • Nathan D.

    Sweat! color choices.

    • Cwalden21


  • ZeNoPants

    No TMobile Nexus…no care.

  • Cwalden21

    I’ve got the original black epic 4g touch with best buy’s insurance…and i’m wondering if after this comes out best buy will let me bring it in and exchange it for the white one after i complain about the black one not working correctly after dropping it several times..haha what do you guys think?

  • damambt

    I get a feeling that the AT&T Galaxy Nexus will be appearing soon. Fingers Crossed!

  • lokidokie

    Seriously… how many different types of the Galaxy S II are there now? I lost count cause I ran out of fingers and toes!

  • Hall Lo

    White Galaxy Nexus is even more sexy! :D

  • hemant kokcha

    what is the two year contract ???? any one tell me.

  • T1392

    Always Love when they come out with a variety of colors for phones, really digging the white GNex though I wish someone other then HTC would come out with a red(Favorite Color) phone.

    • DroidPower

      Totally agree, more color options!
