Stealing from LG

Did they steal this design from the LG-VX4700???
Sure looks like it.
Those Korean models have been out for a while, so if anything, the copying would be the other way around, although I don't think that's what happened either.
Despite the similar look, they are different. The LG is designed that way to make room for the large, high-quality speaker. The Samsungs are designed that way to make room for the megapixel camera module, and also to allow for the unique "swing" action, which the LG doesn't do:
The phone features look really good, but one large question. Since the 1xEV-DO is launching this summer, why are they not implementing it into the newer phones? It would make sense, seeing as this phone will not be out for a year at least, its VZW.
