At the ongoing AsiaD in Hong Kong, Samsung’s Won-Pyo Hong confirmed couple of things related to the Apple litigation. He refuted JK Shin’s claims that Galaxy Nexus is free from any patent infringements. In fact, he termed it as a rumor and said the phone was designed before the whole lawsuit thing happened.
Hong also confirmed that Samsung has started working on the next version of TouchWiz and it is being developed so that it does not infringe any Apple-related patents. The new TouchWiz is expected in early 2012.
