Samsung allegedly “slavishly” copied Apple’s iPhone with their new Galaxy line of mobile smartphones.
The lawsuit comes just months after Apple filed a similar lawsuit against Samsung in the U.S. for the same patent claims. Last week a federal court judge asked the two companies to solve their problems outside of court, noting their past close relationship.
“It is no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging,” a spokesman for Apple in Korea said.
Samsung has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
