White iPhone 4 Might not fit in Your iPhone 4 Case – Fatty

Hold on to your shorts – if the photo’s are true then the white iPhone 4 may be ever so slightly thicker than the black iPhone 4!

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 it–how it holds up over time…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 🙂
