Link: It’s 2012 Again? ☍

The subtitle for the story by Aaron Souppouris for The Verge:

“Get used to this look, you’re going to see a lot of it”

The best way to describe the Galaxy Alpha and Samsung’s new design language is if you took an existing Galaxy S5, and then put an iPhone 5/5S-style metal antenna band around the whole thing. It still has the probably-flimsy back cover and color-matched bezel, but the sides have the little bands to separate the antennas and chamfered edges that have been familiar to iPhone owners. Then again, is anyone surprised?
