News tagged ‘Samsung’
It's Sunday today, which means I should tell you about the most interesting posts of past seven days. Let's begin.
As you probably know, Apple is expected to release its next-gen iPhone later this year. Ahead of the purported launch, more and more mockups and alleged schematics appear on the Internet. They look pretty much the same, however, each one has a unique or worth mentioning feature. That's why I try to describe each mockup thoroughly.
A research firm called Marketing Insight has recently conducted a customer satisfaction survey among the South Korean smartphone users.
Samsung infringed on Apple's patents. This is what the jury found out during the Apple vs Samsung trial. What is interesting, though, is that Apple was also accused of violating Samsung's patent for "Apparatus for recording and reproducing digital image and speech", so now it has to pay the South Korean manufacturer $158.400.
The week has nearly come to an end, so I think we should take a look at the list of the most interesting posts. Let's start.
If to speak about popular articles, they deal mostly with the iPhone and the iWatch. In particular, over the past few days a couple of physical mockups have appeared on the Internet that show how Apple's next-gen handset might look like. Nearly all of the mockups are based on the leaked schematics and renderings, that is why they look a bit similar.
A couple of days ago, another iPhone 6 physical mockup appeared on the Italian website Macitynet. Below you may take a look at the images showing this device compared to Samsung's Galaxy S5.
The handset manufactured by the Korean company has a 5.1-inch display and a thickness of 8.1mm. These characteristics make the smartphone larger and thicker than the iPhone 6 mockup.
It's Sunday today, so let's take a look at the list of most popular posts of the last seven days.
As to the most interesting news and rumors, this time they deal mostly with the upcoming iPhone 6 and iOS 8. Both are expected to debut this fall.
So far, we have seen several different cases for the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6. In a video below we can see one of such cases compared to Apple's iPhone 5s, Google's Nexus 5 and Samsung's Galaxy Note 3. The video has been uploaded to YouTube by a user nicknamed Unbox Therapy.
As I already told you, Samsung thinks Apple has exaggerated the worth of its patents. In the ongoing trial on Monday, Samsung's damage expert Judith Chevalier said the South Korean manufacturer should pay only $38.4 million for the five allegedly infringed patents, not $2.19 billion Apple is seeking.
Like every Sunday, I have something special for you. It’s a list of the most interesting and the most popular posts of the last week. Are you ready to take a look? If so, let’s begin.
Samsung experts claim that Apple has exaggerated the worth of the patents allegedly infringed by the South Korean manufacturer. The company has even accused Apple expert John Hauser of miscalculation of the sum Apple is seeking in damages.
While the guys from Cupertino accuse Samsung of copying the design of their iPhone and infringing on a number of their patents, Samsung executives claim it was marketing that allowed the company to gain popularity among users. This is probably a new type of marketing strategy developed by the South Korean manufacturer himself. It allows to use patented technologies without the owner's permission and to mock rival's products.
According to the latest rumors, Apple has hired branding agency Wolff Olins CEO Karl Heiselman. He is expected to work for Apple’s marketing team. What is interesting is that Heiselman used to work for Apple in the 1990s.
A new iPad Pro concept has recently appeared on the Internet. It features a 12.9-inch display and I must admit it looks pretty good. The concept is based on the rumors about a larger Apple tablet, which first appeared on the Internet last summer. Back in July, The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple was indeed working on a 12-inch iPad, however, a couple of weeks ago an unknown insider informed that the development of the tablet is for some reason paused.
Apple has explained why it is seeking $2.19 billion in damages from Samsung. Such sum is based on Apple's lost profits and royalties on infringed patents, Apple damage expert and economist Chris Vellturo claims.
Apple's mail rival - Samsung - has sued a newspaper called Electronic Times for 300 million KRW (this is about $284,000) over the article about the company's latest flagship Galaxy S5. The authors of the publication claim the smartphone has a faulty camera, which is incorrect, Samsung believes.
