LG Display is looking to get a ban on sales of Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet in South Korea, claiming that it violates three of their patents covering the display. LG Display can also be seeking damages of US$933,000 daily for ongoing infractions while Samsung continues to sell named device. The most recent move is surely an escalation in a patent dispute involving the two companies over display patents.
Back in September, LG Display filed a patent lawsuit against numerous Samung smartphones citing OLED related patents. Samsung denies the claims, and possesses previously noted that it holds more display related patents than LG Display - so a tit-for-tat dispute could escalate even further if the two sides cannot agree funds.
In November, Samsung retaliated by filing its own suit against LG seeking to invalidate the patents in question on the grounds that they "lack innovation."

LG first unveiled the Optimus 4X HD back at Mobile World Congress in February this year. This has been a long time in coming, but the LG Optimus 4X HD is currently available in much of the world - even though it's M.I.A. in the U.S. The Optimus 4X HD will be the first quad-core equipped LG smartphone, and it boasts a very high end specification sheet.
But does the phone manage to outshine its Bruce Banner exterior to demonstrate what it's Hulk-scale guts are equipped for? In short: yes. Apparently what the Optimus 4X HD lacks in external appeal is a bit more than made up for by its good nature and brainy innards.
That makes it one of the most appealing LG smartphones ever created, even if it's not the prettiest phone on the shelf.
As reported before, the Optimus G will be the world's first LTE smartphone to have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (1.5GHz). According to LG, this makes it "not just one of the fastest phones on the market, but also one of the most powerful."
The handset incorporates a 4.7 inch True HD IPS+ display (1280 x 768 pixels), QickMemo, Live Zooming, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of memory, MicroSD card support, and a strong 2,100 mAh battery. For many unknown reason, AT&T's Optimus G may have an 8MP rear camera, not really a 13MP one (like the international version). It appears like Sprint will keep the 13MP camera though. At launch, the smartphone will run Android 4.0 ICS, but an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is scheduled for later.
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics today announced that the high-powered LG Optimus G superphone will be available in the United States on the AT&T and Sprint networks. As the world's first quad-core LTE (Long-Term Evolution) smartphone with the Qualcomm SnapdragonTM S4 Pro processor, LG Optimus G is not only one of the fastest phones on the market, but also one of the most powerful.
Designed to set a new standard in the industry, LG Optimus G combines LG's leading LTE, display and energy technologies with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro processor to create an extremely fast and incredible mobile experience. Equipped with a high-density 2,100mAh battery and impressive 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display, Optimus G users can seamlessly multitask between personal, business and entertainment needs and go beyond the boundaries of traditional on-the-go smartphone capabilities.
"LG Optimus G is the culmination of cutting-edge technologies provided by LG's class-leading global entities," said James Fishler, senior vice president, marketing and go-to-market operations, LG Electronics USA. "Drawing upon expertise from the LG Mobile Communications Company, LG Display, LG Chem and LG Innotek , we have carefully designed a new superphone that encourages users to step beyond everyday boundaries and explore a limitless world of power and creativity."
The elegant yet sleek design and the imaginative user experience displayed in the new Optimus G are made possible thanks to a collection of technologies from industry-leading developers in their fields. State-of-the-art display technologies from LG Innotek and LG Display such as True HD IPS Plus and Zerogap Touch, a unibody unit that eliminates the gap between the glass and the LCD panel, harmonize to offer one of the slimmest, sharpest and clearest viewing experiences yet. The new battery from LG Chem has a longer life designed for multitasking. An ultra high-resolution, compact camera is employed in the Optimus G to offer super sharp photos without pixilation.
Sprint and AT&T will be among the first wireless service providers in the world to offer the LG Optimus G, which is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor - a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU processor with Asysnchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing, which enables each core to power up and down independently to increase performance while saving battery life.
Combined with LTE technology, the impressive processor allows users to easily and quickly view a video while running other apps at the same time. All of this power and functionality is housed in a light weight, eye-catching slim body to cater to fashionable lifestyles. LG developed and patented Crystal Reflection to give the back cover the ability to display different patterns depending on the angle and lighting. The intricate pattern gives Optimus G a clean finish reminiscent of a jewel.
The Optimus G creates the perfect combination of pleasure and functionality through a unique user experience not seen on any other device. While mobile communication, business, and entertainment are easily accommodated with the Optimus G, the all-new device can also release one's inner artist with a wide range of features including:
The QSlide Function shows two different screens simultaneously on one display so users can quickly send an important work email while playing a graphic-intense video at the same time.
QuickMemo allows users to take notes on captured documents or photos with their fingers and instantly share with colleagues as an attachment or URL.
Live Zooming enhances viewing experiences by enabling consumers to zoom in up to five times while watching video to see small details normally hidden on the screen.
Photographs can be intensified with camera capabilities like Time Catch Shot, which empowers the user to choose the best photo among various shots taken before the shutter button is pressed.
Dual Screen Dual Play not only allows mirroring between the smartphone and a TV or monitor, it also has the ability to display different content on each screen. For example, a slide presentation can be displayed on the monitor while the Optimus G shows the accompanying speaking notes.
Creativity is also put to the test by the Icon Personalizer, which allows consumers to customize the sizes and images of their most-used apps.
