Among the long list are the latest Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5, Galaxy Tab S9 series, and Galaxy Watch 6, but also some earlier models like the first generation Galaxy Watch. Asus aims for a judgment in its favor, seeking remedies for Samsung’s alleged patent infringement. To settle the matter, Asus has called for a jury trial, indicating that this legal showdown could stretch out over a considerable period.
As we’ve seen in past cases dealing with patent disputes, these legal battles tend to drag on for a while. For instance, Nokia is still fighting with OnePlus and Oppo in Europe. However, Nokia did score a victory against Vivo in a similar court battle involving patents related to specific wireless communication technologies. The outcome favored Nokia and as a result, Vivo smartphones became unavailable for purchase in Germany due to the infringement issue.
Only time and, of course, the court in Texas will tell how the battle between Asus and Samsung will end, so stay tuned for more updates!
