In a move that is likely to surprise absolutely no-one, documents have been sent to a federal court in San Jose California from Samsung’s legal team “anticipating” the addition of the iPhone 5 to a list of patent complaints against Apple. Samsung admits that it will have to “analyze the device” before definitively adding the iPhone 5 to their pending lawsuit, but Samsung is obviously not swayed by their first-round loss against Apple just a few weeks ago.
“Samsung anticipates that it will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product,” it said in a U.S. court filing.
“Based on information currently available, Samsung expects that the iPhone 5 will infringe the asserted Samsung patents-in-suit in the same way as the other accused iPhone models.”
Apple declined to comment.
