Samsung is only days away from launching the new flagship smartphone, Galaxy S III in the US. While everyone’s excited about the launch, Apple has been plotting to get back at Samsung and stop them from getting into the US. So, what did they do. They did the thing they always do, filed another lawsuit against Samsung requesting to ban the Galaxy S III in the states.
Apple claims that Samsung’s new smartphone infringes two of their patents related to software features, “unified search,” and “links for structures.”
Samsung has already responded to this incident.
“Samsung believes Apple’s request is without merit. We will vigorously oppose the request and demonstrate to the court that the Galaxy S III is innovative and distinctive,” a Samsung spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement.
Company also assured that despite this lawsuit they will bring the device into the US markets, without any delays. “We would also like to assure consumers that the U.S. launch and sales of the Galaxy S III will proceed as planned. The Galaxy S III has already been highly received in markets where it has been introduced. Samsung looks forward to bringing the Galaxy S III to the U.S.”
Apple is clearly getting jealous and scared at the same time. With their upcoming next-gen iPhone in production they are seeking more ways to do whatever they can to get rid of all their rivals. Hopefully Samsung will survive this battle and you guys will definitely get to hold a Galaxy S III very soon.
