Samsung becomes the newest smartphone maker to copy Huawei‘s gradient design for smartphones. Huawei made gradient design a new trend when it launched the P20 and P20 Pro series of smartphones in March this year. The gradient design is one where the color shifts based on its position and light being reflected on the surface.
