It was generally accepted that the only real difference, aside from the thickness issue, between the white iPhone 4 and black iPhone 4 was the color. However a teardown of the white device reveals a modified camera lens and proximity sensor.
As noted by Japanese Apple blog MacOtakara, a white iPhone 4 teardown reveals that Apple has changed both the camera lens and proximity sensor on the white model.
Looking at photo comparisons of the white and black iPhone 4 shows that the rear-facing camera lens on the white iPhone 4 has been set farther back than the black model. Another photo shows that the internal proximity sensor on the white iPhone 4 model has also been changed.
Do these changes make the white iPhone 4 a better device? What do you think?
