Samsung has not decided to welcome the future generation of the iPhone. After the recent revelations of Korea Times who claim that the Korean manufacturer will take legal action to prevent the marketing of the fifth generation of Apple's smartphone in South Korea, we learn today that the rival of the Cupertino company would have plans that would go further. The Reuters news agency said it had heard from a source familiar with the matter that Samsung also plans to block the sale of the next generation of iPhone Europe.

“Samsung Electronics Co is considering legal action to ban the sale of new Apple iPhones in what could be its biggest step forward to defend itself from claims made by the American firm that the South Korean firm had copied the design of its products. ", said a source familiar with the matter on Tuesday.

The South Korean recently lost a battle to the Californian group with the ban on the sale in Germany of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, which is too similar to the iPad. Samsung appealed and announced a few days later the filing of a lawsuit against Apple in France in a dispute over three UMTS patents. Procedures are also underway in the United States, Australia and South Korea. The iPhone 5 should be available around mid-October in the United States, according to the Wall street journal.

We discuss it on the forum.
