Like the black version, the white model will still have a tile design on the back that becomes very apparent in the sunlight.

Still the black bezel

Unfortunately, the white only appears on the back. The phone's bezel remains a stark black.

No changes with the specs

Other than the color, everything else remains the same. It will still run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will have a 4.7-inch screen and an 8-megapixel camera.
