Shin Jong-Kyung, Samsung's mobile chief, says that the iPhone could not exist without the company's patents, reports the Korea Times.
"The truth never lies. Without Samsung-owned wireless patents, it’s impossible for the Cupertino-based Apple to produce its handsets," said Samsung’s mobile chief Shin Jong-kyun in a brief meeting with local reporters on his way to the company’s main office in downtown Seoul, Wednesday.
"As you know, Samsung is very strong in terms of portfolios of wireless patents," the executive added.
The executive also commented about the ITC's decision to review a decision which previously found that Apple did not infringe Samsung patents in making the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
"The re-evaluation decision by the USITC doesn’t necessarily mean Samsung is better-positioned for the fight with Apple. But Samsung will do its best," Shin told reporters.
