It looks like both HTC and Samsung are keeping to their word and have since filed for legal action against Apple’s iPhone 5 upon its official announcement. For those who aren’t familiar, Samsung stated a few days ago that they would sue Apple if they launched an iPhone with LTE connectivity, and sure enough they did. It has been reported that HTC has presented their case to the US International Trade Commission, so it looks like things are already underway. We wouldn’t be surprised if a preliminary injunction has been asked for and if it were to be successful, well it looks like iPhone 5 hopefuls in the US could see the phone delayed beyond its 21st of September release date. Either way we will be keeping our eye out for more information, so if you’d like more info on the possible outcome, check back with us at a later date for the details.
