Samsung will launch a website dedicated to product design

Samsung today posted a video on YouTube to tease not the upcoming release of a new product, but the launch of a website. This new website, www.design.samsung.com, is going live next week, on March 27, and will apparently reveal “insights” and design stories, plus concept designs of smartphones, bendable devices and other gadgetry. Seems promising, doesn’t it?

As you may know, Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, isn’t exactly the people’s choice when it comes to design. But that doesn’t mean the South Korean company can’t wow us with future products. Check out the teaser video below, and let’s wait together for March 27 to see if Samsung has anything surprising to show via its new website.

We the consumers sometimes have better ideas and design then they do... Just we don't have the resources they do put it out there... Why not take from the public... It's about time they do this... It's a change in the game.. Look at the design of concepts alot better than what actually comes out

Hey, I mean some companies like Sony, HTC, and Apple don't need their hands held when it comes to giving the public a sexy product. Don't get me wrong, my first (and last) GS1 and Note 2 are sexy... but not sexy ENOUGH for repetition.... But you are also right. This will help and it is a great idea.

Sorta like when your mommy holds your hand when you cross the road so you don't get run over by a bus.

Just take a look at the Wave series - THE most beautiful any manufacturer can come up with and it was designed by SAMSUNG.

sammy and apple have numbers to prove theor success
htc, lg and sony have beautiful designs combined with ridiculous prices to shoot on their own foot
i remember htc one being sold for 800+ dollars 6months after its release in some countries
sony the biggest idiotic strategy to launch two flagship, neither of which has any competitive edge
sammy and apple capitalised on initial popularity like iphone, i3g, 4s ans s1, s2, s3
no one cares for z1,2,3,4 or new htc one, very new htc one or excepcetionally new htc one
poor lg trying to copy sammy's s/note series combo with g/pro combo
think out of te box u idiots

Sorta like when Apple holds Samsungs hand to make their iphones and ipads. "Daddy Samsung, can you give me some screens, flash memory, and processors, please?"

And Apple is still sexy to repeat their design for 3 times.

Besides Note 2 and Note 3 has more difference than an iPhone 4 to iPhone 5s.

Yes, but they need to pay us a share of the profits, off devices that are using user designs.

Their product is selling very well. So what is the real issue here? Evidently, their design team is doing something great and to let the consumers know about the company's agenda, is a respectable move towards consumer interaction. You should be applauding the efforts.

Actually sounds great to me. What better way to design and manufacture a device, customers input....

Interesting? No. This could be the next big revolution in smartphones!!!!

Just think about it, when Samsung reveals their thinking and reasonning behind the design of their phones - widely touted as the pinnacle of aesthetic design - almost all other manufactureres are going to copy. And with that, Samsung will singlehandedly wipe out the ugly phones which currently pollute the world (iPhone, I'm looking at you).

The only problem left is Chinese companies such as Oppo who ignore the Chinese way of copying and instead choose to design their own unsightly device, sigh.

What's wrong with Samsung's designs? If it is only because of the plastic material, then I feel sorry for you. Most are purchasing Samsung phones for what they offer; not for what they don't. It's simple logic.

---"As you may know, Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, isn’t exactly the people’s choice when it comes to design"---

Where is the document(s) to back this up? While tech geeks may be pushing for a "premium" design in aluminum casings, I've only heard one comment from a mainstream user claiming they want a metal phone. Sales of Samsung phones have actually proved the opposite.

These tech sites need to stop propping up paper tigers in hopes to garner attention to design change. Most of us like the designs just the way they are. Please stop the nonsense of media propoganda in creating self-illusions.

"While tech geeks may be pushing for a "premium" design in aluminum casings, I've only heard one comment from a mainstream user claiming they want a metal phone." Tech geeks are not "pushing" for a premium design the last time I checked they praised plastic a whole lot more.

I won't debate the tech geek vs tech geek scenerio because your opinion may not be far from the truth. However, my point is that no matter how much these sites keep trying to push this crap down our throats, Samsung's sales amoung its mainstream customers, seems to flourish on its current designs.

Not everything needs a document to prove it. There is something called common sense which comes into play. Samsung has been releasing devices with the same design over and over again. That is why a new design wont be all that bad.

Geniuses often lack common sense. But, this doesn't remove the success of how well they can perform in their field of environment. Samsung is doing very well as it stands. A change maybe due, but not too far as to remove key elements that have attracted consumers to its product line.

Since u are replying the same points to every post in this article about sales I would like to tell u the same thing which I wrote in some other article too..

"Even twilight earned more money than Batman Begins. Do u think that makes it a better movie?"

Actually, I really liked Batman Begins. Nice take on how Batman came to be. I used to watch Batman in the 60s growing up. Always wondered how it all started.
