I believe it is one of the reasons for color temp shifting in phones.
Another reason is that it helps when the color temp of the phone matches the ambient color temp. Sunlight and offices tend to have a higher color temp.
Up until the introduction of compact fluorescents, most homes were lit by incandescent bulbs. These tended to have a color temp around 2700K

That sounds right. My office has 5000K bulbs, while most of the rest of the house has 2800K.
