Can’t wait to get your hands on a white iPhone 4? Tired of using that tacky white iPhone kit which is obviously a cheap Chinese cover-up? While we can’t announce the availability of this highly desirable handset just yet, we can point you to the next best thing- a four minute unboxing video that showcases the lovely lines of this impossible to find handset. The origin of this handset is unknown but it is a retail model complete with Apple packaging and accessories.
Despite the pent up demand for the white iPhone 4, the handset is still not available for retail sale. On two separate occasions, Apple has publicly stated that the iPhone 4 has proved to be “more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected”. These unidentified manufacturing challenges have forced Apple to delay the release of the white model until the very open-ended timeframe of later this year.
Rampant speculation on the internet suggests that Apple is delaying the handset to either fix the antenna issue, address problems with bent and misaligned casings, or tweak the tinting and clarity of the white paint for the handset. While the latter is the most feasible explanation, we currently do not know the real reason behind this agonizing delay. All we can do is wait with bated breath for the white model to launch and try to enjoy these video walkthroughs when they pop up from time to time.
