Nokia may have not officially unveiled the N9 at Nokia Wold 2011 but that hasn’t stopped new information from pouring in. The MeeGo running phone gets a brand new colour, glossy White, alongside Black, Magenta and Blue offerings. The N9 will also be getting a software update very soon, which is said to fix some bugs. Unlike the other offerings which will have a matte finish, the White N9 will be the only one to have a glossy surface.

As to why the phone wasn’t available in White right from the start, here’s what Frank Zilikens, head of product marketing had to say,” The manufacturing process for beautiful white products is quite complex and we wanted to make sure we deliver the best possible quality for our consumers.” This version will be available from Q4 starting with the 64GB model. We don’t have too many details about the software update that will be hitting the N9 but we know a few like, usability improvements, music control keys from the lock screen, closing apps by swiping them down by default and NFC tag reading will also be added.
