Default [Q] White charger and cable with black Note

I purchased the SM-P600ZKVXAR (US version WiFi) from Amazon a couple weeks ago and something about it has been bugging me since: This is a black Note, but they sent me a white charger and cable in the package with it. (This was a new product in a sealed package, made in Vietnam; nothing different from the norm). It didn't bother me at first, but looking constantly at my little pile of phones, tablets, and cables on my counter, all black with the one exception of this white cable and charger, made me decide to send an email to Samsung.

Part of their response:
". . . According to Samsung, color of the accessories will be designed specifically depending upon the model of the unit. The model number which you have purchased will be bundled with contrast color accessories to the Tablet. . . ."

Well, this sounds like a bunch of BS to me but, before I pursue it further, I would like to know if this is the norm for this tablet. Has anyone else gotten one like this, or are they all black/black and white/white? If it is BS,I will pursue it with a vengeance.

Thanks for your input.

The white cord looks too much like Apple crap. That said, the only thing uglier than a white cord is a white tablet/phone. At least they give a choice there.

Thanks all. Looks like the Note comes only with white charger and cable. But what should we expect for a mere $530?
I'd like to hear from anyone who actually got a black charger/cable.

Nothing at all if you don't mind being mistaken for an Apple fanboy. I bought my note for what it could do, not for the social value of being seen with it. It is bad enough explaining to the sheep that it is not an iPad, I don't need white cables to confuse them more.

Ah right, well tbf I have a blue and yellow Frieq cable so people are confused more than anything else haha. But yeah, as I fly a lot, the security always say "can you please take your iPad out of the case" kinda bugs me a little.
