White iPhone 4 Slightly Thicker than Black One

Apple released the White iPhone 4 recently 10 months after announcing the White iPhone 4 officially. With the release of White iPhone 4, we thought that finally all the chapters related to White iPhone 4 and its delayed release has come to an end. But we were wrong as the latest story build about the White iPhone 4 thickness. Recently, released White iPhone 4 is happened to be slightly thicker than Black iPhone 4.

The image shown is provided by 9to5Mac and it clearly indicates that White iPhone 4 is in fact 0.2mm (2microns) thicker than the Black iPhone 4. It is thought that the difference is because of different class or paint used in the White iPhone 4 to make its release possible.

VentureBeat explained the difference in more detail:

1. Apple has introduced a fix for the iPhone 4’s antennae woes. The iPhone 4 has a hardware flaw that causes the phone to lose reception when held a certain way. At face value, it doesn’t look like the phone carries any kind of design differences.

2. The white paint for the new iPhone 4 required a different game plan. The white iPhone’s case did not insulate its camera’s flash and leaked light when taking photos, according to reports. White iPhone 4 parts also caused some issues with the phone’s proximity sensor, which disables the screen when talking on the phone so owners don’t accidentally hang up, according to Apple’s Steve Wozniak.

3. The white iPhone needed additional protection from external light sources. Any light leaking into the phone could disrupt the iPhone 4’s screen and make the image less clear, which would be a sore point for Apple because it touts its “retina display” as one of the best smartphone displays in the business.

4. Apple is just trolling tech geeks everywhere to try to generate some additional publicity for the white iPhone 4 — because even a 0.2 millimeter difference is enough to generate news buzz when it comes to an Apple product.

Well! What we think is whatsoever the reason, 0.2 mm or 2 microns of difference makes no difference for this graceful White iPhone 4.
