Samsung has once again come under fire for patent infringement, but this time Apple has nothing to do with the claims. Instead, fellow Android smartphone maker and local rival LG is suing Samsung for allegedly infringing on OLED display patents in their line of Galaxy devices. The patents cover OLED panel design, circuitry, and device design, and LG is seeking a ban of infringing devices in their native South Korea.
The Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note, and Galaxy Tab 7.7 are all included in the suit, which LG display says, “has been filed both to enforce LG Display’s intellectual property rights and promote fair competition.” So much for solidarity among Android manufacturers.
