The Android 4.3 did not show up at the Google I/O but tech analysts were quite confident that the new update would be available very soon. On the web, we can now see photos of the all new Google Nexus 4 running on Android 4.3. The flagship device from Google was showcased at the Thailand Mobile Expo. The event was held at Friday.
Finally, it has come. The images of the Nexus 4 running on Android 4.3 can be seen at the XDA Developers Forum. Still, Google has not announced when the new update will available. However, recent reports show that the Nexus 4 will be launched on 10th of June.
The Nexus 4 is going to be a white variant of the usual black Nexus 4. It is not entirely white but only the rear and side is going to be white while the front will remain black. As far as specs are concerned, it is going to remain same as the black Nexus 4. The white edition Nexus 4 is a GSM phone.
According to TechView, the new white version of Nexus 4 can surpass the black edition in terms of appearance. However, makers have kept the front black which ruins the charm of the device. The hardware seems to be same as the original Nexus 4 which runs on older Android 4.2 OS.

He has also posted a video of the new Android OS featuring the new camera app. The camera app will come with some added features such as toggling HDR, rotation, and white balance.
Apart from the changes in the camera interface, no other new features are yet known about the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. The Android 4.3 is not considered as a major update but may only show small changes in the OS. Undoubtedly, the Jelly Bean OS is the best iteration from Google and we feel more and more devices will receive the Android 4.3 update.
