Just a few weeks ago a rumour surfaced of a light Gold Champagne colored iPhone. At first the rumour just did not seem like something Apple would do. Slowly these rumours started to become more credible, with pictures being released off the manufacturing floors in China.
Patently Apple reports, as soon as the rumours turned into credible news, Samsung executives went into an emergency meeting. The result was an official statement released on August 29 that Samsung has decided to build a line of products with metal cases by the end of the year.
According to the report, “The purpose of this move is to apply metal cases to their premium smartphone models to be released early next year.”
Samsung’s Galaxy line of smartphones has been often criticized of feeling cheap. So far, the whole Galaxy line from Samsung is made of plastic. On the other hand, the Apple brand has always maintained the image of the best designed products.
Samsung has been accused of copying Apple time and time again — is this just another attempt from the South Korean company?
