Samsung has been accused of copying Apple for a number of years, but the Korean company took a while to deliver the same build quality as its rival. The company's latest smartphones have been built with premium materials and there seems more attention to detail in aesthetic aspects. A big part of the new design turn from Samsung has come from the company's Design Management Center, headed up by 47-year old Lee Don-tae.

Lee once worked for Jony Ive's old design consultancy, Tangerine, and Jony Ive is of course the head designer at Apple. So, if you see that tinge of Apple in Samsung's new designs is could be because Mr. Lee and Ivy share much the same ethoses.
