Apple files new lawsuit against Samsung over 22 new devices including Galaxy S III

Everyone knows that when Samsung lost in its legal battle against Apple recently, there will be new lawsuits to come. The fact is, even before the first lawsuit was filed this year, there was already an impending infringement disputes over the South Korean’s newest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S3, and other handsets especially the Galaxy series. The Cupertino-based company is thought to be capitalizing over its victory against its fierce competitor but that’s just how it is being played to make sure competition is reduced.

Many believed that Apple’s victory last week was the end of its nasty legal feud against Samsung but that is apparently not the case here. A new lawsuit was filed on Friday for 22 devices including Samsung Galaxy S3 and the new Galaxy Note 10.1, which marks the beginning of the chapter of this Apple-Samsung legal affair.

The first case was actually the company’s foundation to sue its competitor over other devices which are believed to infringe the patents it has been fighting for. The Korean manufacturer already knew this was coming that’s why it has already rolled out updates for Galaxy S3 to strip off features that could be used in court.

In June, Apple attempted to ban Galaxy S3 sales in the U.S. but Judge Lucy Koh didn’t comply because of scheduling issues. Hence, Samsung’s flagship went on sale in the U.S. It became the best-selling mobile device when it hit 10 million sales mark less than two months since its release, a record that iPhone 5 will have to break to regain dominance.

Obviously, Apple wants to ban sales of Galaxy S3 and other infringing devices in the U.S. to hurt Samsung’s sales before setting up a full-blown assault in court that could lead to another victory. Now, here is a full list of 22 devices included in Apple’s newly filed lawsuit (arranged in alphabetical order):
