Check these two smartphone design patents Samsung got awarded
posted by Chris P. / Jul 31, 2013, 3:17 AM
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! Shame on you Shamesung copycat!

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.

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!
