Samsung hints at 'product that defines our time'

Samsung has refuted reports and legal filings suggesting it copied Apple's designs adding that it will create the iconic devices of the future

 

In the wake of countless patent cases and endless lawsuits relating to the range of Galaxy branded devices and their similarities to Apple products, Samsung has hit out at its Cupertino based rival stating it will create products as iconic as the iPhone and iPad.

Denying claims that the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 took heavy design hints from the iPhone 4 and iPad 2, Lee Minhvouk, Vice President of Design at Samsung Mobile has spoken out on the Korean firm’s plans to be a future innovator and the company’s aspirations to create truly iconic devices.

"As a designer, there's an issue of dignity. [The Galaxy] is original from the beginning, and I'm the one who made it,” Minhvouk said. “It's a totally different product with a different design language and different technology infused."

Paying homage to Apple and its infamous design overlord Jonathan Ive, Minhvouk added: "I might not be at [Ive's] level yet but I believe Samsung will produce such iconic products one day.

"It's not just effort that makes it possible for a new product to be a massive hit. It also has to be timely, and technology should be ready to make a certain design a reality. I'm confident that one day Samsung will make a product that defines our time, and I hope it's one of mine."

Do Samsung’s recent flagship Android devices hold a candle to Apple’s offerings in terms of design or is Apple still a standout leader? Let us know your thoughts on the matter via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
