Samsung: Apple lawsuit didn’t influence Galaxy S III design

Galaxy S III


There’s no denying that Samsung took a different approach with Galaxy S III’s design and made them curvier than the previous Galaxy S iterations. The design change was even speculated to keep the phone safe from ongoing Apple lawsuits. However, Samsung’s design VP Chang Dong-hoon claims that is not the case.

At the 2012 Seoul Digital Forum, Chang confirmed that the change in the smartphone design “is a part of the five-year plan” and Galaxy S III’s design underwent “hundreds of iterations” before settling on the final design.
