Samsung's latest invention looks suspiciously like the Apple Watch

Samsung had a smartwatch on sale before Apple did, but it still seems like the Korean giant is taking cues from its rival in Cupertino.

In fact, Samsung submitted several pictures of what looks like the Apple Watch as part of a patent application published on Thursday.

Most of the pictures in the patent application depict a generic smartwatch. But two figures clearly depict Apple's smartwatch, not a Samsung device. Samsung's submitted images including Apple's crown and several of its proprietary band designs.

The patent, "Wearable Device," describes a format for attaching watch band straps to a smartwatch device. Patent figures — the graphics — aren't really the important part of a patent application.

But the doppelganger drawings in the patent application suggest that Samsung engineers have at the very least drawn inspiration from Apple's smartwatch.
