Samsung has seemingly confirmed this week that it is not looking to change the release date of its landmark smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S3, and will contest a recent patent infringement claim filed by Apple this week which is hoping to ban the smartphone.
Apple has charged Samsung with infringing its patents related to its Siri voice-controlled assistant and other UI patents. However, Samsung refutes those claims and has stated it plans to "demonstrate to the court that the Galaxy S3 is innovative and distinctive."
