Huawei's Glory 3X Pro sports a faux-leather back that screams "Samsung!"

Huawei's Glory 3X Pro sports a faux-leather back that screams
It seems Huawei has caught Samsung's faux-leather aesthetic, as the Huawei Glory 3X's purported successor was photographed donning a faux-leather back - stiching and all. This is a look we're accustomed to seeing in some of Samsung's devices like the Galaxy Note 3 and the Playbook, and one that was yet to be "cloned" by other big-brand manufacturers. While Huawei surely won't win any points for originality, at least its take on the faux-leather styling is well executed. Note how carefully the back panel is cut to accomodate the camera, flash, and speaker grill.

Samsung-inspired looks aside, the alleged Glory 3X Pro will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek MT6592 octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front cam. The price in China is suggested to reach the equivalent of $272 (1699 yuan).

So - what do you think? Should Huawei be worried of this phone being constantly compared to Samsung, or like the old saying goes, there's no such thing as bad publicity?

I bet this phone would probably never get any 'Glory' for it to be compared to Samsung's Beast.

Quoting their CEO "I am not surprised that Huawei is copying so much from the various manufacturers". After all, it is just another China company.

And this is why i don't support Huawei for their idiotic choices(Cortex A9 on the P7) and copycat attitude. Samsung might not have the best design but at least they aren't copycats.

No really dude, you are so funny :DD ps: no srlys go check some old records before you say something, you sound so naive (apple is a copy-paste company from the very start, thats why they managed to be so profesional at copy-pasting and even make it look as others are doing it to them) lol what did samsung copy from apple ? the amazing cubicles UI that never changed ? muhahaha luv it when fanboys drop bombs

Why you're so sensitive of it? Did I hurt your feelings? I said "Samsung copied Apple long time ago", not "Samsung copied Apple until now". Samsung indeed copied Apple long time ago, and it was the old days when the first Galaxy S and first iPhone came out.http://patentlawcenter.pli.edu/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/apple-sues-samsung-over-its-galaxy-phones-and-tablets_1.jpg I'm just "releasing" what I want to say, and you're the one that dropped the bomb with tears.

I love Samsung, but they did copy Apples iphone3GS with the first Galaxy S, blatant rip off with a screen size increase. Back then Apple had reason to sue, now a days though, Apples lawsuits are pointless.

mhm ... told you to go check your records mate! Please next time you try to be a smart ass try researchig in advance! Check Samsung F700, predates Ifail 1 year and it has practicaly the same interface and design (for its time). besides, having in mind that the galaxy s debuted 2 years after the ifail, just tells us how samsung are following their phone line style. ps: not a fan boy, i dont like touch wiz, i know what i like, and i know what i dislike in the phones i use.

And sony copied Samsung what about that? What about stopping the same copy paste thing from article to article and getting a life while no one will click it and no one will waste his time on a wannabe spam-everything sony fan. Ps. Grandpa loves sony too and so does the entire nursery home. Sony 7$ high quality ftw

because they are copying samsung, and not apple, apple wants everyone to copy them so they can sue and make $$$.

So strange that any Chinese company would copy someone else... I don't think they have any original ideas

Their government is equally to be blamed here. If you are copying in China and get sued you would most likely get away with it. Goophone releases its iPhone copycat sometimes even before Apple based on their leaks. Copying phone is just the tip of the iceberg. From cars designs to designer clothes of famous brands like LV, Gucci, they just use reverse engineering on pharmacuetical drugs which companies like Ranbaxy spend years and billions to develop and they just copy their idea. All of this is happening legally and shamelessly. Something you may find interesting:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaDQ8AuFCqU
