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 unveils the entire image of the LG Optimus G Pro and South Korea is said to get a bigger and better version of the said device.

It also boasts of a 13MP camera, wherein photos and videos can be viewed on Full HD resolution.
Bigger specs means bigger battery consumption and the LG Optimus G Pro might still fare well in this department because of its 3140 mAH battery. The huge screen will definitely make use of precious battery life, so you do have to consider this when buying. The South Korean version is only a little different from its smaller brother that was launched in Japan. The only difference is the slightly larger display. Fans will surely be divided on what to go with: The Korean or the Japanese version?
