Check these two smartphone design patents Samsung got awarded
The mood must be at an all time high over at Samsung's HQ, for things are good. The less conservative among us would even say that things are going great. And that's probably because the South Korea-based electronics behemoth simply doesn't show any signs of slowing down, and today is no exception. A slew of patents has been issued Samsung's way in the last day and a half, ranging from new smartphone designs through a host of new icons, some of which more interesting than others.

First off, a necessary health warning: these were all filed a year or so ago. Moreover, just because Samsung got a design patent does not necessarily mean a device looking just like that is on the way; in fact it, doesn't mean a device is on the way at all.

That being said, we're going to be disregarding common wisdom -- we're not going to reserve the best for last and, instead, talk about this new design patent Samsung got awarded, and what it means right off the bat! Before we get sidetracked, it's worth noting that Samsung also got awarded a number of icon designs, most of which rather trivial, but for one. Is that a projector icon?

Laugh. Look at those pics 3-7. Change that button at bottom for circle in your mind and voila! You got iPhone design!

I think those pics are just focus on the icons patent, the phone is just a visualize for how it'll look on the screen.

The difference is, Samsung can actually build this. Apple will have to pay samsung to build it for them. Ok not the whole thing but most of the hardware.

Right-o, because Apple was the original mastermind behind their designs.

Shame on you for your retardation

Reminds me of Nokia X7 a bit, but the X7 tapers off the upper and lower corners of the sides instead. , i do like the design in this pic, at least looks a bit different from others out there.

Good Sammy, patent such things otherwise Apple comes and claims.

I think the first design will be seen in S5 in future.

I dont know but samsung design looks like being already used by china rebranded phone models and 3 to 7 looks like an s2 shrunk to iphone size specially the icons.

OMG. These are Great Designs Samsung. Great idea though that you guys released these designs first or else that Stupid/desperate certified Copy cut Apple will file a case again and sue you that just copied those from them. You know, they are Hungry now as their income keeps on decreasing while Samsung mobility's income keeps getting higher every year and every quarter. Specially the iFans also, they are bored with their iPhones, also no good news about Apple that's why their attentions are on Samsung's success. hahaha WAY TO GO SAMSUNG! Can't wait for the S5 and Note 3!
