Samsung Galaxy S3 US Ban Junked by a Judge, Release Will Continue

Apple’s appeal to impose a court ban for the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is on the way for the US release, has been junked by a California district Judge on Wednesday. This allows Samsung to continue with the scheduled release in America. Had Apple succeeded in imposing court ban for the device, Galaxy S3 should have been the second high-end smartphone banned for release in the US, the first being the HTC One X.

Initially, Apple complained about Galaxy Nexus to have violated few of its patents. However, when Galaxy S3 was unveiled and was found sporting two infringing features, Apple included the device to its complain but it didn’t stop Samsung’s plan in releasing its newest flagship in the US. While the ban was denied by Judge Lucy Koh, the Cupertino-based tech titan is still free to file a motion to enjoin sales of Galaxy S3 but then the company has to request a new hearing date from the court.
Korean manufacturer Samsung, on the other hand, said that it will prove and demonstrate in court that its newest flagship is distinctive and innovative in all aspects and that it’s not infringing any patents that Apple claimed. The US major operators have already accepted pre-orders and have set up promotions for the release of the one of the most popular devices this year. According to reports, Samsung Galaxy S3 will start shipping on June 21st and it will be offered at a premium price considering it bears high hardware specs and stuffed with tons of new features.
Samsung Galaxy S3 will sport Samsung’s very own Exynos 4 Quad processor (an equivalent to Nvidia Tegra 3 with 4 cores) putting the device on a higher level in the high-end smart phone market. It will compete with HTC One X and other high-end smartphones released by different major manufacturers including Apple’s iPhone. In fact, it is posing a great threat to the soon-to-be-released iPhone 5 as Galaxy S3 has already reached new heights as far as sales are concerned. Apparently, prior to the release of iPhone 5, Apple is vying to get Galaxy S3 off the way but it can do nothing in stopping the release of the device in the US.
Among the things that Apple claimed Samsung has violated is the S-Voice. iOS devices were the ones to use voice commands through Siri. When SGS3 was unveiled, Samsung also announced that S-Voice will be available allowing users to execute commands or write emails hands-free. Basically, Apple is not only vying to impose ban for Galaxy S3 in the US, The Wall Street Journal reported that both companies are currently tangled in about 30 patent litigation suits in 10 different countries. It may be long battle for these smartphone giants but hopeful owners of the device are ready to put their hands on such a powerful, innovative and high-tech handset.
Samsung Galaxy S3 also features face recognition and supports near-field communication (NFC). It also comes with Samsung’s AMOLED display technology giving the device better and more vivid picture quality. Apparently, it will become yet another successful device from the Korean company and it could be the key to leading the smartphone market, Apple is making sure that wouldn’t happen.
