LG and Samsung spar over eye-tracking patents

20 March, 2013 Samsung


Apple is not the only rival that Samsung has to watch out for. When you've got everything going on for you, expect even the tiniest the unlikeliest opponent to go after you. As Samsung continues to dominate the market, disputes over patent and market share do emerge between various Android OEMs. HTC and LG recently released jabs against the recently-launched Galaxy S 4, saying that its features, while there are plenty, are mediocre and not what they actually expected.


HTC even decided to display the HTC One outside where the S 4 event was held last March 14th. On the other hand, LG mimicked the S4 pre-launch teaser in a parody to stir interest on its Optimus G Pro.


On more serious notes, according to Yonhap News, LG wants to sue Samsung for using the eye-tracking technology that it introduced as one of the main features of the S 4. LG is now claiming that they have patented this technology as early as August 2009. As of moment, the company is waiting for the S 4 to be delivered in stores worldwide, to verify their chances with the patent infringement issue with Samsung S 4. These two companies had similar issues with their display screens before but looked to have settled out of court.
