The South Korean firm said July-September operating profit increased 91 percent from a year ago to 8.12 trillion won ($ 7.39 billion), in line with its earlier estimate. Samsung, reporting its results just hours after main rival Apple Inc, did not detail its third-quarter smartphone shipments, though these are estimated to have soared to 58 million.

South Korea’s Samsung Electronics, the world’s top smartphone maker, infringed on Apple patents to make its smartphones and tablets, a U.S. trade panel judge said in a preliminary decision issued on Wednesday. Apple had filed a complaint in mid-2011, accusing Samsung of infringing on its patents in making its Captivate, Transform and Fascinate smartphones as well as the Galaxy Tablet. Judge Thomas Pender said that Samsung infringed on four Apple patents but did not violate two others listed in the complaint. The full International Trade Commission will decide in February whether to uphold or reject the judge’s decision. (Reporting By Diane Bartz; Editing by Tim Dobbyn)

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, which is battling Apple Inc (AAPL) across the globe for dominance of the smartphone market, dealt the California company a setback by winning a preliminary invalidation of a key Apple patent, according to a court filing. The fight is related to Apple’s war against Google, whose Android software powers many of Samsung’s devices. Samsung said in a filing late Monday that examiners at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) had taken a second look at an Apple patent and decided that it should not have been granted. The patent allows a user with a touch [...]

Apple Inc (AAPL) lost its appeal of a ruling that its rival Samsung’s Galaxy tablet computer did not copy Apple’s registered tablet designs in a British court on Thursday. The world’s two leading smartphone makers are fighting over patents, both for smartphones and for tablets, in courts around the world. The decision is valid throughout Europe and should prohibit further legal disputes between the two companies over the design of tablets such as the iPad in the region. The Court of Appeal upheld a British High Court judgment that despite some similarities, Samsung did not infringe Apple’s design, in part [...]

A U.S. appeals court overturned a preliminary injunction on the sale of Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s Galaxy Nexus smartphone on Thursday, dealing a setback to Apple Inc in its battle against Google Inc’s increasingly popular mobile software.

In one of the more visible developments of that battle, Apple scored a sweeping legal victory over Samsung in August when a U.S. jury found Samsung had copied critical features of the hugely popular iPhone and iPad and awarded Apple $ 1.05 billion in damages. In [...]

/SAN FRANCISCO A U.S. appeals court overturned a pretrial sales ban against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s Galaxy Nexus smartphone, dealing a setback to Apple Inc in its battle against Google Inc’s increasingly popular mobile software. Apple is waging war on several fronts against Google, whose Android software powers many of Samsung’s devices. The ruling on Thursday from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is not expected to have an outsized impact on the smartphone market, as the Nexus is an aging product in Samsung’s lineup. Apple’s stock closed down nearly 2 percent at $ 628.10. However, the [...]
