Apple requests sales ban on nine Samsung smartphones [Report]

Apple and Samsung patent wars are far from over. We recently reported that Samsung has been found guilty of infringing on a couple of Apple patents and even Apple was found guilty of infringing on one Samsung patent. Now, we have news that Apple has requested ban on nine Samsung smartphones and they also want Samsung to stop using the features, which they have been found guilty of infringing upon.


The nine Samsung smartphones here in question are Samsung Admire, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 Epic Touch 4G, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Stratosphere, and the Galaxy S3. Most of these smartphones are irrelevant currently except for maybe the Note 2. These Samsung smartphones are said to be found guilty in latest law dispute.

Apple also wants Samsung to stop using features such as “quick links,” “slide to unlock,” and/or “automatic word correction”. The Cupertino giant has also requested a retrial to review the fine, which stands at $119 million while Apple wanted $2 billion.

Apple is unlikely to gain the sales ban but even if they do, they’re unlikely to impact Samsung sales, considering most of the devices in the list have already completed their life cycle. Well, Apple must be aware of that and they might be aiming to make a statement.
