Just yesterday, the Cupertino-based gadget giant announced on the much-awaited and strongly rumored smartphone, the White iPhone 4. Whereas the big issue on Apple rolling in the 'White' flavor on its products one-by-one, remain a mystery, a recent discovery suggests on Apple missing on one thing. MacRumors just reported on the white iPhone 4 being slightly thicker than the original version. Even though there is a small difference compared with the black iPhone 4, users have reported on the white version not being able to fit in the laters case.
Apple has increased the size of the white version of the iPhone 4 by almost 1mm as it adds the plastic that borders the glass on both sides. Whereas 1mm is not a big difference, iPhone users have reported on spotting the difference immediately.
A colleague of mine just picked up a 16 GB iPhone 4 in white. I was a bit surprised when I picked it up off his desk (I had my black 32 GB in my other hand at the same time) ¬¨√± it immediately felt thicker.
In an update, the actually measurement has been identified at 0.2mm. For some cases 0.2mm difference can make a fit difference, some slider cases are already tight fit with existing phone. But honestly why would you care to get white iphone only to cover up with stupid case.
Apple's official iPhone 4 spec page lists the measurement at 9.3mm, displaying no difference after the launch of white iPhone 4. Whereas certain users and gadget freaks have reported on this issue, it remains unknown why the extra thickness is not detailed on the spec page.
