White iPhone 4 Might not fit in Your iPhone 4 Case – Fatty
Only released yesterday it seems that the new iPhone 4 may be lighter in colour but it’s packing extra depth.
Posts on MacRumours are showing that not only is the whiPhone 4 a little chubbier it appears that it is packing enough extra girth to prevent it slipping into some iPhone 4 cases.
A quick shufty over at the iPhone 4 specs page reveals that the Apple mobiles vital stats are: 115.2mm x 58.6mm x 9.3mm – but checking the small print you see that “Actual size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process.”
That is what you’re looking for – the white iPhone does, by all accounts, indeed use a different manufacturing process than the black iPhone. Remember Phil Schiller’s statements about it being “challenging” to manufacture?
It’s not as simple as making something white. There’s a lot more that goes into both the material science of itâ€“how it holds up over timeâ€¦but also in how it all works with the sensors.
Have you noticed that the white iPhone 4 feels a bit more of a handful?
Let me know 🙂
