Galaxy Is Not a Copy of iPhone: Samsung’s VP for Design
Reuters recently blamed Samsung Electronics and their design unit in the favor of Apple’s continued legal battle by saying that Samsung is involved in “slavishly copying” Apple’s products especially iPhones.
Now Lee Minhyouk, Samsung Mobile’s vice president for design comes forward to defend his company with his shouting denial of Apple allegations:
“I’ve made thousands of sketches and hundreds of prototype products (for the Galaxy). Does that mean I was putting on a mock show for so long, pretending to be designing?”
“As a designer, there’s an issue of dignity. (The Galaxy) is original from the beginning, and I’m the one who made it. It’s a totally different product with a different design language and different technology infused.”
Lee also notes that though his design abilities might be inferior to Apple’s VP for design Jonathan Ive, but he still believes that Samsung “will produce such iconic products one day” without any blame of copying Apple’s products.
No doubt, in the recent days, Samsung has introduced itself a great and true rival of Apple as a largest vendor of Android phones especially its Galaxy series has really made Apple products somewhat out of glory and faint by winning many awards and prizes.
Amazingly enough, in spite of all these legal obligations, Samsung is yet a biggest supplier and the manufacturer of Apple’s 3rd Generation new iPad’s Retina Display.
Apple and Samsung are still engaged in many lawsuits in the courts over design and patent issues.Apple, iPhone, Samsung
