Samsung has told a U.S. court that it plans to sue Apple over at least eight patents that it believes the iPhone 5 infringes on, reports FOSS Patents.

Here's the statement from Samsung.

"Samsung anticipates that it will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product. On September 12, 2012, Apple announced that it will release the iPhone 5 on September 21, 2012. Based on information currently available, Samsung expects that the iPhone 5 will infringe the asserted Samsung patents-in-suit in the same way as the other accused iPhone models. Samsung plans to file a motion to amend its infringement contentions to address the iPhone 5 as soon as it has had a reasonable opportunity to analyze the device. Because Samsung believes the accused functionality of the iPhone 5 will be similar to the accused functionality of other accused Apple products, Samsung does not believe that amendment of its infringement contentions should affect the case schedule."

This second battle between Apple and Samsung is currently scheduled to go to trial in California in March 2014.

When the iPhone came out there was nothing like it. And they keep making improvements. How the fuck is apple copying samsung when apple created the market. Samsung needs to show some respect to their idol apple. I have ios and android devices. They are both good now but apple is the original gangster dumb motherfuckers. Samsung as a company is just a conglomerate price of shit. Google=great Apple=great Samsung=suck. AmeeeeriCA! Fuck Yeah!

um apple have been using samsung to produce 80% of the iphones internal parts. what happens when samsung invent a new chip, apple steal the idea and have a cheaper manufacturer produce the samsung chip for them. i think samsung ripping off ideas from apple is the least of concerns.

Hahaha!! This is hilarious! Samsung is such a joke. Any rational human being, a fan of Samsung or not, has to see how immature and unprofessional Samsung is being about this. They copied a product, got caught, and paid for it. That should have been a good learning lesson; do NOT fuck with Apple.

if that is the case then Apple should not throw stones in the glass house they built. apple innovation and design died when steve jobs did. there is nothing else . they simply had thier time to shine and now trying to steal someone else thunder. apple has open the can of worms so now all companys are reviewing their patents carefully to see if anyone is infringing on them.
