Not really. Logically, since they have been making them for a while, Apple can reap more profits out of selling an iPhone 4 now than they will with an iPhone 5 at launch, since that newer hardware will be more expensive but will still have to be sold at the same price point (give or take).

Apple might simply release a white iPhone 4 because of the fact that the iPhone 4 line will be replacing the 3GS as the 'cheap models, so might as well have a little diversity to suit different tastes.
