Samsung SCH-V740, RAZR lookalike

Apr 22 2005 - 03:48 PM ET | Rumor, Samsung
UPDATE: Samsung has officially shown off the SCH-V740. More photos are contained in our new report.
Rumors started spreading earlier this week that Samsung was prepping a Motorola RAZR V3 lookalike--they were true. The Samsung SCH-V740 looks surprisingly like the razor-thin flip phone from Motorola: TelecomsKorea confirmed that the spy shots shown above were legit. However, Samsung doesn't admit to copying the RAZR: bq. "The name is SCH-V740, right. However, its appearance is not necessary the same as the photos... Samsung used to make 8mm-thick cell phone a few years ago. It doesn’t make any sense that we copied RAZR.” Who copied who will be argued for a while, but one thing is for sure--thin phones are in style. [via Engadget]
