With the Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus on its way to the market, rumours and gossips have been rolling on the streets about how Samsung evidently copying Apple in many ways.

Although, Apple and Samsung have a rivalry that have long being the talks of the streets, but what few does not remember about the rivalry is that both companies are part of a love and hate relationship thus, though neither wants to have anything to do with the other, Samsung builds panels and manufacture most of the processor chips that are being used by Apple.

In spite of the rivalry, it turns out that both companies inspire each other and their current device line ups bear witness to that.

At first, it was "rounded corners and chamfered edges"; then, it was the "Galaxy S6’s speaker grille" and now, the Samsung smartphones' nomenclature that is said to be another Apple's copycat by Samsung.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus is being rumoured to have being named in honour of the iPhone 6 Plus.

How true is that? Well, you may have to read further to reveal the truth.
