Much to the delight of Apple fans the White iPhone 4 was finally launched a few days ago. Not long after the White iPhone 4 was launched it was found out that the White iPhone 4 is 200 microns thicker than the Black iPhone 4.
Apple has not given any official statement explaining why there was a difference in the thickness of the two phones but there were a lot of guesses made by a lot of people.
Some of those guesses from Venture Beat are:
1. In the initial iPhone 4 there was an antenna design flaw.It is quite possible that the flaw might be corrected in the white iPhone 4 (It was launched so late; Apple had enough time to correct the flaw). The correct of the flaw might have thickened the White iPhone 4.
2. The camera flash light of the White iPhone 4 leaked while taking images and there were a few issues with the proximity sensor as well.These issues have been now fixed in the White iPhone 4 and this might have forced Apple to increase the thickness of the amazing device.
3. The White iPhone 4 has got extra protection from external light sources which otherwise were causing the external light to leak into the screen and cause a harm to the awe-aspiring Retina Display. Fixing this might have been the reason of the thickening.
4. Apple just did it for media attention and publicity.
Whatever be the case, if you have bucks in your pocket and need a new phone, go get the White iPhone. It is beautiful.
