Is the "exclusive" carrying case just a different colour?

Every model of Steam Deck comes with a carrying case, but you may have noticed the top model says it comes with an exclusive one.

Now we've seen pictures already of the Deck within a case that has Valve embedded in the top, but have we been looking at the regular one or the exclusive one? The fact that there have been 2 different colours could mean that one is the standard and the other is exclusive. There is no indication so far that customers will be given an option to choose the colour, but maybe there will be eventually.

Maybe, all the cases shown so far have been the exclusive version and everyone else will receive a more basic design?

I'd venture a guess that the the inside of the cases will all be the same color for the consumer release. The difference with the "exclusive" case is more likely to be the material on the outside, IE real leather instead of PU (fake) leather, or something along those lines. Or maybe it'll have some extra storage pockets.

That difference in color is probably just 2 different versions of a prototype case, and when they have decided on a color it will be the same for all cases. Probably white or black as that baby blue is disgusting.
It's possible the white balance is just off in that second one and they're actually both white. Remember the whole Black and Blue/White and Gold thing?

My guess is the regular case is just cloth and plastic and the "exclusive" case is PU leather. Because I really doubt it's genuine leather. It would take quite a lot of leather and the money would be better spent on making a better product.
