An authentic, actual, satisfactual white iPhone 4 has been photographed at a Vodafone UK store, with details suggesting a beginning sale day of next week.
Pictures were captured and sent to Engadget, along with details. Vodafone’s inventory has shown that the white iPhone 4 is already shipping in, but the carrier says they cannot be sold until next week.
The pictures are of a 16GB unit with model number MC604B/A. Based on Apple’s numbering scheme, it is presumed that the 32GB white iPhone 4 would be model MC606B/A.
Further, it appears that one has actually accidentally been inadvertently sold.
“As the story goes, the carrier’s point-of-sale system rang it up as a black iPhone, and shortly after the sale went down, Voda sent out a notice to halt sale of these gems ‘until next week,'” the report said.
Apple may have decided to push forward to sell the white iPhone 4, rather than scrapping it altogether, because the company does not plan to release a fifth-generation iPhone this June, as it has done in years past. Instead, the iPhone 5 may be released in September.
