White iPhone 4 is thicker

White iPhone 4 is thickerThe white iPhone 4 is finally here, but the handset that made a million headlines in its 10-month absence isn’t content to lie down quietly on the shelves.

A MacRumours reader has discovered that the white iPhone 4 is, in fact, a little bit thicker than its black brother. As such, the white iPhone 4 won’t fit in his case (manufactured by Incase).

An accompanying photograph shows the white iPhone 4 sitting on a table, marginally higher than the original black version. The cheeky devil.

The difference comes courtesy of the white stuff itself, which is said to be approximately 0.1mm thicker on each side than the black stuff. If you’re too hungover to do the math, I’ll help; that’s 0.2mm thicker in total.

Not the end of the world, clearly, but worth taking into account if you’re thinking of grabbing a white iPhone 4.
