Apple adds six new Samsung devices to patent lawsuit

The long-running patent war between Apple and Samsung Electronics has escalated further with Apple claiming that six more Samsung products infringe its patents.

The six products that Apple is seeking to add include Samsung’s Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Rugby Pro, and the Galaxy S III Mini.

The latest suit, which is scheduled for trial in March 2014, is the latest move in a series of patent infringement lawsuits filed by Apple against Samsung in the US District Court for the Northern District of California.

In August this year, a jury ordered Samsung to pay about $1.05bn to Apple as damages for infringing its patents.
