LG Display seeks injunction on Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 in South Korea

LG Display seeks injunction on Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 in South Korea
The other day, we told you about some of the new displays that LG Display will be showing off at CES 2013. The three we mentioned to you included a 4.7 inch panel with a small 1mm bezel, the 5.5 inch phablet sized display with 1080p resolution and a 403ppi pixel density, and the tablet sized 7 inch screen with a 324ppi pixel density. LG Display will also reveal larger television-sized panels at the show.

Because LG plays in the same backyard as fellow countryman Samsung, there is bound to be a natural competitive tension between the two manufacturers, especially since both produce many of the same products including smartphones and tablets. Both LG Display and Samsung Display have been battling each other in court over OLED displays, but there is now a new legal battle between the two which takes us to Seoul District Court. On Wednesday, LG Display filed with the court seeking an injunction against sales in South Korea of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 tablet. The request was in response to a filing made by Samsung on December 7th alleging that LG infringed on 7 of Sammy's patents relating to LCD technology.

Besides seeking to block sales of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1, LG wants 1 billion won a day ($933,000 USD) in damages in case Samsung refuses to comply with a court-ordered injunction. Responding to LG's request for the injunction,  Samsung Display VP Shim Jaeboo said that Samsung did not infringe on LG's patents and that it will respond to the "unjustified charges" made by LG. According to LG, Samsung infringed on patents related to viewing technology embedded in panels which helps keep images on the screen looking sharp regardless of the viewing angle.

Lol LG needs to quit their "Apple behavior" and worry about fixing their products, the last LG i had was the LG Optimus G and it was one of the worst android experiences ive had, buggy and battery life was absolutely horrible.. Went back with my GS3 :)

So basically you are telling the device with, True HD-IPS + 768 x 1280 pixels, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait(Qualcomm MDM9615/APQ8064), 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 gave you a worst android experience......than the crap GS3.

Sorry but I would also rather have the S3. Its not all about specs. The UI on the Optimus G is poorly designed and unintuituve, and is far worse than TouchWiz. There's no point in having good hardware if the UI is poor (which phone arena stated in their review) If the Optimus G had stock, then fair enough. That's a different story.

Talking about UI I agree I also would choice TouchWiz but talking about hardware I would choice LG Optimus G.

definitely not a fan of LG's UI. not matter what hardware is brought to the table...if the UI sucks, then i'm uninterested hence never being interested in any type of LG android phone.

small correction. Samsung will tell to LG "Battle in the market not in the court room". And they will tell "Court battle always slow down innovation". Innovation=copy in samsung english korean dictionary.

For some reasons I think that the next year will be the same suing year.
