When Samsung (SSNLF) revealed the gold version of its Galaxy S4 last week in the U.S., Apple (AAPL) fans accused the company of blatant stealing.
Not so much, Samsung countered in a blog post on Friday: If anyone copied, the company clearly hinted, it was Apple.
Samsung released images of all of its different gold-colored phones over the past years — pointing out that they covered gold well before the new iPhone 5 was released. It also pointed out the the gold Galaxy was released in the United Arab Emirates before the iPhone’s gold version was revealed.
Check out their proof, below:
