Samsung’s latest counter-suit drop doesn’t show a retreat or that Apple has won the patent war. This patent was an answer to Apple’s patent complaint which was filed at the US Federal court. Samsung mentioned that the reason why they withdrew the calin is because it needs to “streamline the legal proceedings”.
Samsung has previously made patent claims in South Korea, Japan, Germany as well as USA towards Apple. Gsmarena claims that the only possible reason why they withdrew the claim was because that this was done in a hurry and that they weren’t prepared.
