An antagonistic legal strategy has been planned by the Samsung to obstruct sales of Apple’s unannounced iPhone at its arrival in Korea, as asserted by a new report. Sources in the South Korean electronics giant told the Korea Times that the company decided to take its legal battle to the next generation of products instantaneously when Apple try to release the iPhone 5 in Korea.
An anonymous Samsung senior executive stated that Samsung is willing to take Apple to court for violation of Samsung’s wireless technology related patents, just after the entry of the iPhone 5 here.
He added that they will stand strongly against Apple during this lingering legal fight, as long as Apple does not crash mobile telecommunications functions, as it would be impossible for Apple to sell i-branded products without using Samsung’s patents.
The other executive unveiled substitute tactics that its legal team has designed. He was of the view that they are taking different measures as they are quite confident. If Samsung became victorious in Germany this will be a step forward so that they visualize other actions against such products as the iPhone 5
A U.S judge denied the pledge of Samsung to see Apple’s next-generation iPhone in June. This was the counter attack of the company as Apple requested to see Samsung’s unreleased products. However Apple has confined its plea to Samsung already-announced products, while Samsung was pleading to see devices that Apple has yet to announce.
The publication was also informed by Samsung that to commence e-wallet functionality Apple’s fifth-generation iPhone would be integrated by near-field communication (NFC) technology. Although rumors about this feature has been buzzing a lot, with one recent report asserting that it will appear either in the fifth or sixth generation of the handset. But Apple has not given any official statement about the inclusion of NFC capability to the next iPhone.
Apple’s employees are found responsible of leaking out the information regarding its upcoming products. Last week, an ex- Samsung manager confessed of leaking information about the unreleased iPad while serving the company in 2009.
The patent war between Apple and Samsung has been shoot-up rapidly since the iPhone maker blew its whistle in April. At least 23 lawsuits are waiting between the two companies across a number of countries. Apple has seen a few early successes against Samsung; including a permanent ban to avert the sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Germany.
