Samsung S5830 is captured on film ahead of its MWC unveiling
Besides witnessing a rash of Android smartphones during CES, the next big event for the mobile community is none other than MWC next month. Even though there is still some time before the festivities even commence for the biggest mobile event in the world, we're already starting to see a device that's expected to make it debut during the show.

From the looks of it, images of the Samsung S5830 have been snapped and gives us a general idea of what to expect for this device. So far, it's being reported that the Samsung S5830 will feature Android 2.2.1, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth, 720p video recording, and a microSD slot.

Design wise, it has a slight resemblance to the iPhone 4 with its rounded corners and solid bezel all around. Still, it's hard to say if this device will be included as being part of the Samsung Galaxy S family – but we'll see in due time.

Koreans always copy others. We've seen that in Samsung, in Hyundai and in history. Their ceremonial attire and items are directly copied from China, they claim they were theirs to invent Taekwondo, etc... They really have to be more creative and innovative.

Apple should be again flattered. Imitation is the highest form of admiration.

Who cares if they copied apple design wise, its another phone in the market creating more competition for companies and more options for us.

Also, why not copy the must talked about phone in world and put your own design cues on it. Maybe add a thing or two that Apple decides they're too good for.

Oh brother, which came first, the chicken or the egg ? Back in the day (2006), Samsung launched an MP3 player (Samsung YP-Z5F) which I could claim the iPhone4 copied ! I own this MP3 player, still using it to this day, and it's chief design aspect was a metal bezel surround. I recently played with an iPhone4 and lo and behold - metal surround bezel. LOL ! Relax guys, a phone is a phone (is a MP3 player!)

Who really cares if they copied it, it's a fricken phone! There has always been one company copying another in the mobile or electronics industry; stealing the competition's ideas and making them better by improving on the original framework is pretty standard. As long as they took the design and made it their own I don't really see how people can complain so much about everything, the increased competition only benefits us the end consumer.

who new apple could own a simple design. so if we draw a rectangle with a camera and led flash under it, will we get sued??? people just like the look of that phone design and samsung actually cares, and decided to give us a phone with that look. iphone users always wanted a bigger screen and a qwerty keyboard since the first series but apple never cared, so stfu not like they care about negative feedback
