White versions of high end phones are available at some time after launch and sometimes in limited quantities. If a marketing strategy of producers or if it is indeed difficult to be produced, it’s hard to say. The fact is that Nokia understands that users want some white models and announced the release of the Lumia 800 White.
Nokia borrows not only the idea to launch its phone in white at Apple. If you read the press release, you can see how the manufacturer uses the same superlative style when announcing the new model.
Nokia says that pure white is extremely hard to get, as you have to test hundreds of options to reach the final color.
In terms of hardware is identical to other models of Lumia 800. As a remember, Nokia Lumia 800 has 3.7-inches screen with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, 512 MB of RAM and 16GB internal storage, 1.4GHz processor and 8 megapixels camera with dual-LED flash and autofocus.
The new white phone will be launched later this month in several European countries. The price was not announced yet, but hopefully Nokia sells more expensive than other models in other colors.
