Last week, a jury found several of Samsung’s devices to be guilty of infringement on Apple’s patents. The damages awarded thus far total around $1 billion dollars, but Apple is seeking much more than that.

The Cupertino company has filed a notice with the court today identifying which of Samsung’s infringing products that it would like banned from US sales, including several Galaxy S and SII models…

The Verge reports:

“Despite having received a finding of infringement from the jury on most of the products in play in case, it looks like Apple is only going after eight. This isn’t terribly surprising given the fact that many of the products in the case are no longer available in the US. The eight Samsung products are:

  • Galaxy S 4G
  • Galaxy S2  (AT&T)
  • Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket)
  • Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)
  • Galaxy S2  Epic 4G
  • Galaxy S Showcase
  • Droid Charge
  • Galaxy Prevail

Apple’s filing specifically lays out the devices and the patents each was found to infringe according to the jury.”

Even these devices are getting hard to find in the US these days. For instance, the Droid Charge is available at Verizon for free with-contract, but many locations don’t even have them on hand.

That being said, some of these handsets are just now reaching MVNO and prepaid networks. So Samsung would still see some kind of impact in sales if Apple were to win sales bans on the devices above.

But despite its recent victory, Apple is still going to have to prove to the court that it will be “irreparably harmed” if these products continue to remain on sale in the US. While this will likely be easier with last week’s ruling, it’s by no means a slam dunk.

The Apple-Samsung injunction hearing is set for September 20th. Stay tuned.

    I’ve never even heard of all these devices except for the Galaxy S II.

    • Gorgonphone

      there are 1000000 different android phones u its sad

      • Every manufacturer has a series of devices available. Take the HTC One series, for example. You can find high end (One X), mid range (One S) and low end (One V) editions. Really simple. Similar situation is with most OEMs. The reason why there are so many “different” versions available is because carriers like to customize, change, destroy and rename every single one. Galaxy S 2, for example, differs from carrier to carrier. Just because a certain device has a different name, doesn’t mean it is a different series.
        There are also 10 iPhone versions currently available, so I don’t really see a point in your argument. Competition is good. Without it, iPhone wouldn’t even be as nearly as good as it is today. Embrace it.

  • As a wireless sales rep for Wal-Mart, I can assure you that this will do a significant amount of damage, at least to Wal-Mart’s sales.

    The SII Skyrocket is a very popular AT&T phone, especially for those who don’t to buy a SIII. And the SII is still quite popular on the T-Mobile aspect of things. If these phones were to be banned, my store would probably lose half of it’s stock in AT&T and T-Mobile phones. Apple has stepped way over the line, has become too powerful, and deserves the DOJ to come down on them. Hard.

    • J

      Apple stepped over the line?? Its all just business, Samsung got caught with their hand in Apple’s cookie jar, now they’ve got to face the consequences.

      • Yes they did get caught but I think it is going a little to far by taking the phones off the market. They could just pay Apple and keep the phones on the market. Like when a person buys a Samsung phone, then Apple gets part of the profit until Samsung pays Apple what they owe. They don’t need to ban the products, Samsung could risk going out of business.

      • Hey, then that is what has to happen. Samsung sucks, they made a profit off of stealing design ideas and now has to pay. On a smaller scale, if we as normal people did something to that effect, we wouldnhave to pay too, why not samsung. Take the phone off the market for all i care. Apple rules.

      • goofygreek

        There is no way Samsung would go out of business just because of a few 1 year old phones being taken of the market. Dont forget, Samsung supplies Apple with its cpu’s. They make a lot of money of off apple, and im sure they are going to raise their prices a little to make some money back. Also, they make a lot more stuff then just phones or tablets.

    • Gorgonphone

      what for being great and patenting their stuff?

    • Piegrrl

      LOL-no offense, but a complaint about a company that is too powerful, coming from a WalMart employee is priceless.

  • Sucks to be Samsung right now. The Galaxy S2 Skyrocket was a cool phone.

    • Samsung will be alright. The judge is now considering whether to throw out the jury verdict, since the case was ABOUT prior art invalidating Apple’s patents, but the jury ignored all the prior art evidence.

      • Gorgonphone

        samsung need to pay some bribe money to get that done..

      • Seeing how faulty the jury decision, it’s pretty clear who was doling out the bribe money. Apple’s “innovation” has always consisted primarily of other people’s ideas.

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    Had the skyrocket for a little bit and it was a good phone..

    • @dongiuj

      I bet you didn’t mistake it for iphone though.

  • Apple is desperate to win in the courts rather than the marketplace.

    • Instead of smacking Sumsung in the face, they also want to kick them in the balls. That’s all…

    • They have already won the market place haven’t u heard

      • Gorgonphone

        iphone is alway number 1

    • When’s the last time someone asked if a phone was an Android killer (any model)? So it appears Apple already has the marketplace won.

      • Anirudh B

        Often actually. For instance, remember when someone at Foxconn said that the iPhone 5 is going to be a Galaxy S3-killer?

  • Is there a geometric shape that Apple has not patented for a phone? Quadrilateral with razor sharp edges?

    • SoCoMagNuM


    • goofygreek

      Ahh, people dont like your comment. Go figure. Very funny btw. Im waiting for them to make a sliding phone and patten that trying to say it was their design.

      • I’ve gotten used to it here. I think there are people who down vote everything I say regardless if they might agree with me or not. Haters going to hate as the young kids say these days ;]

        There’s things I love about Apple and there’s things I hate about Apple.

        I dig this site because of the jailbreak info that is posted… I think some people consider me a Apple hater and a troll, but that’s not the case. I am just not an over obsessed fanboy.

  • Gorgonphone

    but the S3 is the only phone that matters and its not on the list so who cares..

  • Lets put this into perspective. If each tax paying household., were to receive 50,000 dollars, apple would still make A profit off this judgement. To receive over 1,000,000,000 dollars is CRAZY. That amount of money could change the lives of so many people. STUPID CRAZY. -eat your wheaties-

    • Guest

      Apple’s gonna change the lives of people by its products,not by giving away money and you should tell that to the government not to a pirate company.

      • Apple’s gonna change the lives of people by its products,not by giving away money and you should tell that to the government not to a private company like apple.

      • goofygreek

        So apples products are going to stop hunger? Or how about cure diseases? Or, how about helping homeless people get of the street?

  • nothing beats galaxy s2 apple thinks its iphone is king with its same crap phone with low specs

    • You gotta be sick in the head or a troll. And maybe both.

      • SoCoMagNuM

        ive seen you post on opposing comments on different articles as well. convicted of your own crime. this blog isnt just all things apple nor is it s cult just for people that only back apple burn the rest of the world. everyone is entitled to their opinion just be able to back it up with valid points….not childish (troll alert) tactics lol.

      • goofygreek

        While this blog does bring up other devices and what not, it is still a apple blog at heart. So, regardless of what your saying, this is a place for apple fan boys. So there is always going to be people like Acolz on here.

      • SoCoMagNuM

        Trust me i know. My friend thinks i jump ship to whatever phone i have. Its not that i hate apple now that i have an galaxy 3. Its just i wanted a new experience and iOS to me has just become stagnant. iPhones are still great phones non the less. what i dont agree with is apple suing companies over simple ideas. That patent system is flawed and this is a result. There should be limitations to patent ideas.

      • goofygreek

        and you got to be a trolling apple fan boy. Just saying.

    • macboy74

      Low spec yet it runs better and smoother than the highest speced phone running android. Please explain why that is?

      • goofygreek

        Maybe because ios is so locked down and limited that you cant do anything to the phone without hacking it. Mean while, android is sitting their going, sure do whatever you want to me..

    • goofygreek

      How about the Galaxy s3? I have the at&t s2, and i think the s3 beats the crap out of it.

  • SoCoMagNuM

    glad my galaxy 3 isnt on the list…even so im in the clear anyways cause this batles between apple and samsung which i still this is stupid. explain to me how someone is going to be “confused” between an “APPLE IPHONE” and a “SAMSUNG GALAXY (whatever version)” if i go to store and ask for an iPhone then I want an iPhone and will leave home with an iPhone. If i leave with a Galaxy then either i was a better appealing phone or im just a dumbass to pay attention. thats like me going to a catr dealer and say “i want to buy that lexus” but i leave home with a corolla…whos fault is that? apple makes bank already. needa let the market thrive. so what its “similar”…its NOT the same. my phone works very different than my previous iphone. im not defending samsung for using an idea but same time i still say apples measures are a bit drastic. they will put a sour taste in their community..unless their part of the brainwashed “apple does nothing wrong” crowd

    • No… Imagine this: Someone walks into a store asking for a phone similar to iPhone but cheaper and the store guy offers him the Galaxy S2. It’s almost same, cheaper and someone who is not interested in tech won’t understand the difference (hw & os wise) and will be satisfied. But what he really wants is the iPhone.

      • thor_molecules

        What a terrible example. The logic that everyone who bought a Galaxy REALLY wanted an iPhone is absurd on a level beyond comprehension.

        Here’s what I don’t get about Apple and their die-hard fans:

        Why do you have such a hard time believing that maybe some people don’t want iPhones and prefer Android?

        Or should try be forced to buy Apple because YOU like it?

      • SoCoMagNuM

        ive had iphones exclusively since the 3G and before that ipods. Over the years the experience has basically been the same. the form changed once the iphone 4 hit but still the OS seemed a bit stagnant. I got bored and wanted a new experience. Ive seen what rumors odf the iphone 5 “looks” like and well… looks the same. ive seen what iOS6 looks like and well….it looks the same as i had with iOS5….stagnant. so instead of waiting for the 5 i went and got me a galaxy s3. yes i kno its not on the list but even so if i were to get the galaxy s2 it would still be a different experience. The phones look and operate differently than iOS and apple devices. its like night and say for me. no longer do i have to linger on waiting to jailbreak just to get the features/tweaks i like/expect from a smartphone. no long do i feel so limited to what i can do on my phone.

        i used to hate the idea of andriod (even using them before) but i made up my mind id give it a shot and it paid off. its a great phone and its not an iphone…..thats what apple doesnt like so it starts this bogus monopolizing battle over the asthetics of a phone. yes samsung used some ideas apple had with their phone but the phones are DIFFERENT…bottom line. thats coming from someone thats used and handled both.

        (not attacking you just letting you know my story and my experience and how ii cme up with my opinion on the matter. i agree with what you stated)

      • @dongiuj

        Well said. I’m thinking about changing to a Galaxy s3 myself. If my wife was on a different carrier then I would have made the change already.

      • And by the way I had 3 iPhones, 3G, 3GS, 4S and many Android phones, Galaxy S, HTC Evo 3D, Motorola Milestone, Google Nexus S and a Huawei.
        Just so you know my comments are also coming from someone who used and handled both. I am not a die hard Apple fan. But I just had the best experience with iPhones and no other phone proved to work better for me 😉

      • SoCoMagNuM

        Thats wonderful but the subject was about iphones and android phones beig a different experience/ device. If one cant tell the difference thats their own fault. IPhones are great phones. Theres some great android phones out there. Everyone has their preference. Its just apple doesnt like that fact that someone used some of their ideas with a different twist and some chose it over their product. The phones look/work differently. Period.

      • If you could read you would notice that I didn’t say that everyone with Galaxy wants an iPhone. You’re a terrible reader.
        I know some people want Androids, I don’t have hard time believing that. But you Android fan should read the comment again to understand that I said someone not everyone. Ignorant

      • thor_molecules

        I well aware of what you wrote. I used the Galaxy as an example because it in particular was singled out in the case as “looking” the most like an iPhone. Though I’m sure through your superior reading ability, you already knew that and got the reference 🙂

        I merely pointed out how Apple and many others erroneously conclude that consumers are too dumb to know the difference between an iPhone and *any* Samsung phone. And through that faulty logic they assume that for every infringing device sold, Apple lost an iPhone sale.

        The problem with that and “the next best thing” example is it removes the possibility that the customer actually wanted an Android product, and was somehow tricked into buying it due to shady marketing (or copying if you prefer).

        Hence, the “terrible example” remark.

      • SoCoMagNuM

        again..if you walk in a store and ant an iphone and leave with a samsung galaxy s2…whos fault is that? its obvious you know what an iphone is yet you leave with something else. thats not apples nor samsungs fault….thats customers fault. you know what you wahnted when you walked in.

        im using words some english man/woman made up hundreds and thousands of years ago. lets trace down his aires and pay royalties for having the privilege of using his/her words in the discussion. i didnt create the english language i sure use it though. the nerve of me.

        (yes the grammer isnt 100% correct because i use it with my twist, but i should still pay royalities to their decendents)

        lame example but hey…yours is better obviously.

      • @dongiuj

        It’s the staffs fault. You don’t just walk into a shop and pick up a box with a phone in it, pay for it and walk out. If you could do that and if you did make the mistake then you obviously know nothing about iphones and therefor it wouldn’t make any difference. If it’s a gift then you just take it back (unused) and get the correct one.

      • I said it mihht be someone not interested in tech, so he’ll be like “Hell yeah this is almost like an iPhone but I saved 300$”

      • I think I would compare this to McDonald’s hating burger king just because they make a good burger.. people will get what they feel like at the time but it’s personal choice. You can’t mistake a burger king burger for a double cheese burger but we know a whopper costs more and tastes amazing but sometimes u wanna try something else so you go to a Wendy’s or big boy burger… it’s all about a burger but with a different taste at the end. All smart phones now are similar but with their own respected touches on them ..they look similar but inside they are different

      • mattkin22

        This burger example is the summary of everything that is wrong with this court case. And America.

      • @mattkin22 I’m not from America but I agree the court cases are now becoming a joke and they should just combine and make what apple keep telling us “the most amazing iPhone yet” with all this tech about we as consumers should be reaping the rewards but instead apple and Samsung make it difficult to enjoy when you don’t know if that model will be banned or something

    • some guy

      Well said

  • Let’s face it. Pretty much everyone was using a flip phone or a Blackberry when the iPhone came out. I just don’t see how they can possibly deny that they straight copied. They went from flip phones to apple phones in a matter of months. They did it quick and very well, I might add.

    • SoCoMagNuM

      Straight Copy – Copy that does not contain any charts, tables, formulas, photos, or illustrations, but contains only text.

      lets stop saying straight copy cause well…thats not the case here. galaxy phones, android phones as a whole operate differenty than apples iphones. they didnt straight copy or clone. they used an idea and implemented it there way. look up HiPhone or Cect 168 on youtube….thats a clone or “straight copy” as many eople tend to use lol

      • They copied pretty much everything. From visual voicemail, to swiping through pictures, pinch to zoom, apps, etc. There is a whole list of things. It just goes on and on. The Prada and F700 were not full touch screen were they? They had a physical keyboard. I never did actually use them though. Did they even have a virtual keyboard to go with it? :] I am just like to have fun with you guys though. We all know what happened. They saw a great product and followed suit. Everyone would.

      • SoCoMagNuM

        It makes phone calls too . Damn u samsung copycats lol apple was first for everything and the only original innovator…they msde everything from scratch.

    • How is it that even after all the posts about the LG Prada or the Samsung F700 that you selectively forget that it was being done before the iPhone. Just because the iPhone did it better does not mean that the iPhone did it first or that Apple invented the whole market.

  • Samsung will have another eight up in a few months anyways.

    • Galaxy S and Nexus series refresh yearly. Carriers (not Samsung) are the reason why there are so many different devices available.

  • maurid

    Nice, just stay the hell away from my Nexus.

    • No more Obama

      where did you disappear to? you haven’t been around for a while. HAIL APPLE! …jk

  • If I’m honest I’ve had both phones now and loved apple but I just find they aren’t raising their game enough for me to warrant staying and I jailbreak to get the same things android has. Granted the android system is poor because iosIs smooth and less buggy but it’s become boring on apple. Personally I don’t think people got confused unless they are old or easy to ve talked into another handset. It’s usually push selling of other handsets that causes customers to buy another product but once the customer uses it for a while they realise it’s not the handset they wanted. I do love apple for what they have done and I still have an iPad but for now the s3 is a great new toy which is what apple should be looking to do better than. A business is only as good as its competitor so with that apple should just do what they are doing and look at Samsung an innovate better than them because that’s obviously what Samsung are doing. They see the iPhone and add more features but when the next iPhone comes out it’s basically a catch up on what android phones have added years before

    • SoCoMagNuM

      Couldnt say it better myself

  • Liu Zhenyu

    I had no idea there were so many variations of gs2s

  • What’s with the people saying iPhone is becoming boring? Would you want it to change so you would have to get used to all the changes again? I know I wouldn’t.
