Samsung has launched the Galaxy S6 today, at the Unpacked Event in Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, with some mind blowing features. The device is certainly one of the best we have seen from Samsung in the last few years, not just in terms of the hardware but also the design, which is for sure is better than the Galaxy S5 with the dimpled back.
The brand has moved from the plastic back panels to full metal inclusions, which is all thanks to the user’s feedback. Now there is a lot of buzz in the Social Media that Samsung has again copied Apple and this time their latest flagship, i.e. the iPhone 6, but we have a different though on this. Before you start comparing the Galaxy S6 photos with the iPhone 6, you need to ensure that you have taken a quick look on Samsung’s own ATIV S Smartphone that was running on Windows Phone 8. The ATIV S was announced in 2012 and didn’t make a hit in the market but at least has inspired them to use the design in the latest flagship.

[quote align=’right’] The Verge : SIMILARITIES TO THE IPHONE 6 ARE UNDENIABLE [/quote] I don’t agree with this point made by The Verge, considering their bias around the Apple products in the recent past. Samsung is always accused, but this time we think they should not be. Instead it is Apple who can be accused and the above-mentioned samples can add some weight to the argument. It is not that Apple has blatantly copied the ATIV S, but we can say that it is inspired by the same and Samsung has neatly ported the same for their latest flagship.
Let me know with your thoughts on who has copied whom or who’s inspired with whom from the photos hosted above.
