Samsung said Apple's iPhone 5 infringes its patents, continuing a global fight over mobile devices after winning a court order lifting a ban on U.S. sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer.
Samsung added claims about the iPhone 5 to an existing patent-infringement lawsuit between the two companies in federal court in San Jose, California. Apple won a $1.05 billion jury verdict against Samsung on Aug. 24 in a separate patent case in the same court.
According to the suit, the iPhone 5 infringes two standards patents and six features patents.
U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh yesterday rescinded a ban on U.S. sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that she imposed in June.
The case in which Samsung added the iPhone 5 claims is scheduled for trial in 2014.
In August, Apple added the Galaxy S III smartphone to its list of products that it says infringe its patents.
Koh has scheduled December hearings in that case to consider Apple's request for a permanent U.S. sales ban on eight Samsung smartphone models and the Tab 10.1.
