The more I looked at the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S III, the more I felt that I may have seen it before. True enough, I could actually have seen it before - at least a similar one to it. A Google search through the iPhone 5 concept design immediately brought me to the popular one by http://www.ciccaresedesign.com/iphone-5-concept/
I put together a simple composite photo to compare the two and the similarity is reasonably obvious to my eyes. The curve at the top and bottom. Even the chrome lining at the vertical sides of the Galaxy S III look like they are tracing that curve from the iPhone 5 concept design.
Anyway, I believe Apple did not commission that concept design and the iPhone 5 would probably not be using that design - at least not anymore. So this is no biggie....
