Samsung has had a tendency to get blamed for copying in the past, especially when it comes to Apple products. While that doldrum has quieted a bit as of late, it may get fired up again here soon.
While a previous report surfaced that suggested, in plain detail, that the Samsung Galaxy S6 (and, despite its curved edge display, the Galaxy S6 Edge) could very well look like an iPhone 6, the believe has been that Samsung would take this time, with another flagship, to launch something wholly unique. Something that didn’t look like an Apple product.
Samsung’s set to unveil the Galaxy S6 on Sunday, March 1, and when that happens we’ll finally know everything, but until then the leaks continue to rise to the surface. This latest one, based on images posted to Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn and surfaced by SamMobile, suggest that Samsung’s design ideas were at least a little bit prompted by Apple’s own. The images showcase what is allegedly the earbuds that will be bundled with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge when they launch later this year, and they look strikingly similar to Apple’s EarPods.
Even down to the white color.
More than that, though, these earbuds look to be form-fitting to sit within the ear and nestle there, much like Apple’s EarPods. Yes, Samsung’s design seems to be stretched out a bit more, but the aesthetic is quite obvious in its relation to Apple’s headphones. Another difference is the cable itself, which appears to be flat. These earbuds will offer in-line control, too, with volume keys.
