“In preparation for its second patent trial against Samsung scheduled for Spring 2014, Apple has revealed it will seek to include Samsung’s new Galaxy S4 smartphone in a list of 22 products it believes infringe iOS user interface patents,” Matt Brian reports for The Verge. “As part of its statement filed with the US District Court in California yesterday Apple said it analyzed the Galaxy S4 after its release, and has ‘concluded that it is an infringing device and accordingly intends to move for leave to add the Galaxy S4 as an infringing product.'”

“In order to add the Galaxy S4 to a list of infringing products it originally filed in August 2012, Apple will ‘eliminate (without prejudice)’ one of Samsung’s accused smartphones and tablets,” Brian reports. “While the court wants Apple and Samsung to remove products from their lists, Apple believes the Galaxy S4 poses a more immediate threat than at least one of the other Galaxy devices it has already named.”
