English term or phrase:"Front and back panel pictures now show a white housing for the X brand."
Could anyone please help me to boost my imagination? How does this gadget look like? Can "housing" mean "background" here?
Reference information: Front and back panel pictures are simply pictures of the panel (pictures of the gadget). They show that the gadget is white. Housing doesn't mean background. It means the outside of the gadget, the cabinet (in opposition to the inside of the gadget which would show the components). The housing is the outer part of the device. It's not something outside of the device. If you hold the device in your hand, your hand holds the housing. The components are inside of the housing.
