Apple targets Galaxy S4 in latest patent lawsuit

Apple Samsung Patent Dispute

Apple on Monday submitted a list of 22 Samsung products to the U.S. District Court in California that it believes infringes upon its technology, The Verge reported. The list includes a variety of smartphones and tablets such as the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The company also asked the court for permission to add the newly released Galaxy S4 smartphone to the case, claiming that it too infringes upon Apple’s patents.

“Samsung recently released its newest smartphone, the Galaxy S4, which began shipping in late April 2013,” Apple’s legal team wrote in the document. “Based on Apple’s analysis of the Galaxy S4, Apple has concluded that it is an infringing device and accordingly intends to move for leave to add the Galaxy S4 as an infringing product. Upon the grant of such motion, Apple will eliminate (without prejudice) one of the Accused Products named herein, so that it will continue to accuse only 22 products of infringement at this stage of the litigation.”

Samsung previously accused the iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac and Apple TV line of devices of infringing upon its technology. The two companies are set to face off in court in a second patent trial scheduled to begin next spring.
