Did Apple’s Lawsuit Affect The Design Quality Of The Galaxy S III?

Buzz around the Internet is that Samsung’s Galaxy S III took its design ques as a result of the ever ongoing battle with Apple’s patent infringement case. Samsung design VP, Chang Dong-hoon was asked earlier today to give his feedback on the matter to which he denied it being the case at all. According to reporters, at the 2012 Seoul Digital Forum, Dong-hoon claimed the following to clear the matter up:

“Our change in smartphone design is part of a five-year plan, not a sudden turn-around”

Dong-hoon was persistent in noting that the design of the GSIII’s curved shape was due in part to be the product of hundreds of different iterations and not the pressure of the battle against Apple. Either way, I’m very pleased with the design quality of the device, even though a literal brush metal would have been nice instead of a metal-”ish” material. What do you think?
