Samsung court date is delayed

FOLLOWING the fall-out of Apple’s $1bn victory over Samsung in the courts last Friday, US Judge Lucy Koh yesterday announced the hearing, which could see eight phones removed from the shelves, will take place on 6 December.

News of the delayed injunction, which was originally pencilled in for next month, led Samsung shares to rise three per cent.

The court date came as the firm unveiled its latest smartphone, the Galaxy Note II.
