The white Samsung Galaxy Nexus has begun shipping in the UK ahead of the handset’s recently announced February 13th official release date.

Confirmed earlier this week by Samsung as heading to the UK, the white Samsung Galaxy Nexus has brought its lighter hued Android 4.0 innards to British soil earlier than expected with the device original pegged to make a pre MWC 2012 appearance next Monday, February 13th.

“After much speculation, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Galaxy Nexus White which follows the great reception the phone has received since it was launched back in November,” said Simon Stanford, Samsung’s UK and Ireland head of the Telecommunications and Networks Division in unveiling the device.

“One of the things we at Samsung pride ourselves on is the choice we offer customers, and we’ve enjoyed huge success to date by introducing white variants of our most popular models to our product portfolio.”
