In a bit of a one-two punch, Samsung added the iPhone 5 as a legal target after a federal judge issued an order dissolving a three-month-old ban on sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S., reports C/Net.
A federal judge on Monday issued an order dissolving a three-month-old ban on sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S. The Korean electronics giant welcomed the news, asserting that sales ban was unnecessary.
Today the Korean electronics giant submitted an amendment to its lawsuit originally filed in April against Apple, adding the iPhone 5 to a list of devices that includes the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and the new iPad that Samsung accuses of infringing on several Samsung patents.
A Samsung representative told CNET that the eight patents in question include six utility patents and two standard essential patents unrelated to its LTE patent portfolio.
