    Both are still clones.
    Originals are no more in manufacture.

    The white R4 is real, most clones are black

    There was a slight case redesign as well between the white and black versions.

    Actually, the V1 came in both black and white. When I bought mine, I got both shells. One with the insides, one empty shell.

    I have a somewhat similar question:
    I have an r4 that looks like this[​IMG]
    which looks slightly different to this.[​IMG]
    Any reason for this?

    Yes I know it did, but for the black one like in your profile pic (which is usually referred to as "the black one" or V2) there was a case redesign.

    in the past:

    White = JAPAN/ASIAN market
    Black = European & US market

    That's all

    if we, of cours, talking about the r4 from r4ds.com

    One is with the microSD Slot with spring (the second picture)
    the other is without spring

    That is why we called R4 V2

    He had it backwards. The first picture is the spring loaded R4. The second pic is V2.
