Reuters has published an interesting article today that throws some light on how Samsung’s design failures in the past led them to create a successful Galaxy S range.
Samsung released the Omnia phone to combat the onslaught of the iPhone and though it failed to please consumers, Samsung Mobile’s vice president for design Lee Minhyouk feels Omnia paved the way for Galaxy S that went onto sell about 44 million units since its launch.
“Without Omnia and Samsung’s previous models, there would have been no Galaxys. There’s a design link among these products. They share our deep deliberation on technology, color and design language.”
Lee also applauded designs of Apple products but was disappointed when Apple alleged Samsung to “slavishly” copy the iPhone design.
“I’ve made thousands of sketches and hundreds of prototype products (for the Galaxy). Does that mean I was putting on a mock show for so long, pretending to be designing?”
