Samsung’s recently announced Galaxy Nexus may remain free from the legal tussle between Apple and Samsung. Head of Samsung Mobile, JK Shin confirmed that they’ve started taking patents “very seriously” and have tried to avoid features on Galaxy Nexus that may infringe any patents.
However, this does not mean Galaxy Nexus is free from any patent infringements. Shin acknowledged the fact that patents “can be difficult to identify” and it will be a matter of time to know if Galaxy Nexus is really free from patent infringements.
When asked about the ongoing lawsuits, Shin reckoned the lawsuits could “last for a considerable amount of time” which in turn is damaging Samsung’s brand reputation.
