Ever wondered why you have never seen a white iPhone 4 in stores or in the hands of someone, ever? Well, there is an explanation, it was never released. Right when the company, Apple, announced the iPhone 4, it had mentioned that the white iPhone 4 will be delayed a few weeks. But later, those few weeks turned into “later this year”, but that later has not yet come.

But now, a white iPhone 4 has been spotted by a blog, Pocket-lint, in NY in the hands of a random man in a press meet. The man was spotted using the not-yet-released white iPhone 4. The blog reports that he refused to be identified. When asked how he got the device, it is reported that he mentioned a friend of his who works in Apple in CA, who apparently hooked him up with one of them devices.
Apple had said that there are some problems being faced with the white version of the device, but it had never mentioned what the problem was. The blog tried to know what it was as the man was literally using it from quite some time. He has said that there is some problem with the paint of the phone. The company which makes the panels for Apple is apparently not able to make the paint of the front panel and home button match. This is supposed to be the reason why Apple is still hiding the white iPhone 4s in its plant. Take a look at the images below:
