iPhone 5 Release Date: Samsung Looks to Ban Apple’s New Smartphone in Europe

Samsung is set to intensify its battle with electronics giant Apple by looking into taking legal action in the hope of banning sales of the iPhone 5.

A massive legal battle has been waging between the global technology leaders with Apple recently claiming that Samsung had copied the designs of its iPhone for its Android smartphones.

With Apple preparing for the launch of its next generation iPhone, Samsung is now looking to gain an injunction to halt the launch of the iPhone 5 across Europe, according to Maeil Business Newspaper.

Not satisfied with that alone, Samsung also filed a lawsuit on Saturday against Apple in Australia, claiming that the iPhone and iPad 2 have breached numerous wireless technology patents belonging to the Korean electronics giant.

Samsung is also appealing a decision of a German court that ruled in favor of Apple to prevent Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 computer in Australia and Germany.

The two rival companies have been suing each other in 23 countries so far.

However, analysts believe that the two companies are likely to eventually come to some licensing agreement to resolve their legal battles since they are also partners in some ventures; ironically Apple is Samsung’s largest client.
