Samsung is working to refute reports that the Galaxy S III was designed by lawyers with specific intent on working around Apple’s ongoing patent infringement case. Samsung’s Design VP Chang Dong-hoon was asked at the 2012 Seoul Digital Forum where he told reporters that the design of Samsung’s smartphones had not changed because of Apple’s lawsuits.
“Our change in smartphone design is part of a five-year plan, not a sudden turn-around.”
Dong-hoon insisted that Samsung’s curved shape design for the Galaxy S III had undergone hundreds of designs before finally settling on the production shape we see today.
