Galaxy S3, Samsung GalaxySIII, GalaxyS3

Lawsuits are everywhere in the telecommunications industry today. Among the major players in the lawsuit game are Google, Apple, Samsung, Motorola, Microsoft, and HTC. Lately, some rumors have been going around that the new Galaxy S III by Samsung had its very design tweaked specifically due to competitor Apple‘s ongoing infringement case.

Samsung design VP Chang Dong-hoon has refuted these accusations that the Exynos-powered Galaxy S III was designed “by lawyers.” Responding to the reports that stated the new handset was tweaked to circumvent deliberate trade dress claims made by Apple in its patent infringement case, Dong-hoon said “Our change in smartphone design is part of a five-year plan, not a sudden turn-around.”

He went on to say that the flagship went through hundreds of iterations before the team alighted upon the model that will shortly make its way into sweaty palms all over the world.
