Default Samsung Galaxy S with External Antenna, fake?

Hi everyone. I just recently bought a galaxy S from a friend. I noticed an antenna on the upper right corner of the phone. This is my first time to see a galaxy s with an antenna. Now I'm worried that i have a fake galaxy s. Any thoughts on this? the phone is korean version if that makes any difference. Please help

Oh, bad news! I think you can go to the official site for help. I am very surprised that your friend sold you a fake phone. Why do you call him friend if it is fake?

There's some Brazilian galaxy s that I've seen pictures of via Google search with the Samsung logo and some that aren't. But they definitely seem legit though.

Welcome to AF! Hope you enjoy your stay here.
