Apple will Try Banning Eight Samsung Smartphones in the U.S.
Since the court gave its verdict that Samsung infringed Apple's patents, the Cupertino tech giant has identified eight Samsung smartphones that should be banned from the U.S. market.
The devices that will soon face a ban in the U.S. market are Galaxy S 4G, AT&T (T) and T-Mobile's Galaxy S II, the Galaxy S II Epic 4G, the Galaxy S Showcase, the DROID Charge, the Galaxy Prevail, and the Galaxy S II Skyrocket.
Apple, however, has to prove to the court that it will face irreparable harm if sales of the eight phones in question are allowed to be continued in the market, reported The Verge.
Samsung, meanwhile, issued a statement on the matter saying: "We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market."
The court hearing is slated for Sept. 20.
Samsung, on Friday, Aug. 24, was slapped with $1.05 billion in damages as the jury found that 21 of Samsung's smartphones and tablets infringed on various Apple patents.
Earlier, per the court's order, a preliminary injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has already been imposed. Samsung, reportedly, has asked the court to lift that ban as the jury could not decide whether the tablets genuinely infringed Apple's design patents. However, Apple opposed Samsung's request and according to a Bloomberg report, wants to extend the ban to the cellular version of the Tab 10.1.
