Here’s something of a mystery: Sky News, while reporting on the iPhone 4 hype in the UK, managed to catch a couple of white iPhone 4s in the shot – despite the fact that the white model isn’t due to ship until the second half of July.

The video below was originally posted on 9to5mac. The white iPhone 4┬ácan be viewed in the video at 1:23 and 1:31. The handsets seem to be display models – but even so, using the white iPhone 4′s as a not-available-to-buy display model doesn’t really make sense. Maybe they just flashed it for the press…

In other news, it was reported that the UK only received 16,000 iPhone 4 handsets. Orange UK apparently told a TechCrunch reader this was due to antenna issues, though no further comments have been made elsewhere.
