We knew that Samsung was looking to sue Apple over the iPhone 5, so it’s not surprising to learn that Samsung has submitted a document to the federal courts where they have stated that they anticipate adding the iPhone 5 to the list of grievances they have against Apple over alleged patent infringements. However this isn’t necessarily a done deal and it won’t be a 100% guarantee that they will be able to sue Apple over the iPhone 5 as they are still analyzing the device, making sure that there are elements of the phone which could have infringed upon their patents. One of which we’re guessing might pertain to 4G LTE as that was a feature Samsung claimed they will sue Apple over if the iPhone 5 were to come with it, and it did. Either way we’ll have to wait and see how this one plays out, but until then while the analyzing is being done and given the bureaucratic nature of the legal system, we expect Apple will continue selling millions of iPhone 5 units way before Samsung gets a chance to file a possible preliminary injunction.
