The ongoing post-trail happenings between Apple and Samsung has come up with an interesting and exciting development for the spectators.
The former has filed a notice with the court to ban eight of Samsung's devices from the US market. However, this is not surprising as some of these products are not available in US anymore.
The eight Samsung devices are listed below.
- Galaxy S 4G
- Galaxy S2 (AT&T)
- Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket)
- Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)
- Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
- Galaxy S Showcase
- Droid Charge
- Galaxy Prevail
The chart below shows the patents that are violated by each of these smartphones. On September 20, 2012, there will a hearing to discuss these injunctions and the Cupertino-based company will have to prove that retaining these devices will result in irreparable damage for the company.
Apple has mainly targeted these devices as most of them are selling for relatively cheaper prices as compared to the iPhone.
Analysts assume that the evidence and the weight of this case are heavily on the Apple's side and there is a 60% chance of injunction against these Samsung smartphones.
It is to be noted that a South Korean court on Friday banned iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and iPad 2 of Apple and Samsung Galaxy S2 and other products in the country for infringement of patents.
The court ordered Apple to pay a damage of $17,650 for each of its patent violation while its rival (Samsung) was ordered to pay $22,000 on its infringement of the bounce-back feature on touchscreen.
