Early iPhone design was inspired by Sony

Samsung has claimed that tech giant Apple’s iconic iPhone wasn’t the firm’s own invention. According to the South Korean mobile maker, first prototype iPhone from 2006 revealed, was inspired by Sony design.

It seems that Apple industrial designer Shin Nishibori was directed to prepare a “Sony-like” design for an Apple phone and then had CAD drawings and a three-dimensional model prepared. Confirming the origin of the design, these internal Apple CAD drawings prepared at Mr. Nishibori’s direction even had the “Sony” name prominently emblazoned on the phone design, as the below images from Apple’s internal documents show.



Samsung also tabled its own internal documents from 2006  showing that it was working on iPhone-style designs “well before the iPhone was announced by Apple firm”.


“Samsung has been researching and developing mobile telecommunications technology since at least early 1991 and has  invented much of the technology used in today’s smartphones. Indeed, Apple, which sold its first iPhone nearly 20 years after Samsung started developing mobile phone technology, could not have sold a single iPhone without the benefit of Samsung’s patented technology,” the company added.
