Samsung Plans To Fight, Possibly Modify The 8 Smartphones Apple Wants Banned

Samsung sure won’t leave this case without a fight. We reported over the weekend that Apple was seeking to ban 8 of Samsung’s smartphones from the United States due to infringement of Apple’s patents. The list of phones can be found below, and luckily for Samsung, their newest flagship phone isn’t on the list. 

Early Tuesday morning, Samsung confirmed they would be fighting to keep these smartphones intact on the market. Their first job of duty is to fight the ban request, if that’s failed, they plan on modifying the devices to rid them of patent infringements.

Here’s more on the report, from BGR:

“We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market,” a Samsung spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, further noting that Samsung would file to block the injunction, appeal any injunction granted by the judge, and then modify devices should the company’s appeal fail.

Furthermore, we found that those aren’t the only smartphones Apple wants banned. They seek the ban of a total of 21 Samsung devices, including even tablets.

On a good note for Samsung, their Galaxy Tab 10.1 was not ruled a product infringing Apple’s patents and they are expected to request the ban be removed, allowing sales of the tablet in the United States.
