After winning its patent infringement case against Samsung in a US court, Apple is seeking a sales ban on eight of Samsung’s smartphones in the United States, as well as an extension of a preliminary ban on one of Samsung’s tablet computers.
The eight Samsung phones Apple wants banned include the Galaxy Prevail, one of the South Korean company’s top selling units in the U.S. from mid-2010 to mid-2012; Galaxy S II Epic 4G, ranked the third-best seller; Galaxy S 4G, the fourth-best selling; and the Galaxy S II T-Mobile, the eighth-best. There is also the Galaxy S Showcase, the S II AT&T, the S II Skyrocket, and the Droid Charge.
It is worth noting that Samsung’s latest flagship devices, including the Galaxy S III, were not included in the case.
Apple is also seeking to extend the ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which Samsung wants to be lifted after the jury found the tablet did not infringe the Apple design patent that the court-ordered sales ban was based. However, the jury also found that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringed on three of Apple’s software patents.
The court has scheduled the hearing regarding the ban requests from Apple on September 20th, although the date may change.
