Apple has added four more Samsung smartphones to the list of devices it seeks to get banned in the United States, following a costly legal battle.
After winning its patent suit with Samsung, forcing the latter to cough up in excess of $1 billion (around €850 million), Apple released a preliminary list of Samsung devices that it wanted banned in the US.
That list named a total of 8 models, including the Galaxy S 4G, the Galaxy S2 (AT&T), the Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket), the Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile), the Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, the Galaxy S Showcase, the Droid Charge, and the Galaxy Prevail.
The Cupertino giant has just added
four more handsets to that list, including the popular Galaxy S III.
If Apple gets the injunction approved, Samsung will no longer be able to sell the S III in the States, which will undoubtedly affect the Korean company’s bottom line this quarter, and the next.
