it's good production engineering for a minor model upgrade - why change any parts other than those that absolutely need to be changed. New tools & parts cost additional money.

But they had the parts and moulds from the previous models.  And in the case of the buttons the assembly will be identical with just a different plastic colour...  such is the stuff of minor upgrades

I think the point here is that it isn't even a minor upgrade...  it is one additional nfc chip (or maybe the latest revision of the wifi chip comes with NFC) and a tiny change to the grip moulding... and that is it
