A U.S. court has temporarily lifted an injunction on the sale of Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Nexus smartphone imposed late last month.
A U.S. court of appeals on Saturday decided to grant Samsung's request to lift the ban in an appeal against a California district court's decision to ban it because the Android operating system it uses violates patents held by complainant Apple.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Nexus is soon to be replaced with models running the latest version of Android called Jelly Bean (instead of the current Ice Cream Sandwich OS), which Google says does not infringe patents held by Apple.
The appellate court asked Apple to present its views on the appeal by Thursday. However, it upheld the lower court's ban on the sale of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet PC in the U.S.
Meanwhile, Samsung has presented its newest Galaxy S3 LTE smartphones to all members of the Korean national football team and its manager Hong Myung-bo, wishing them good performance at the London 2012 Olympics, a press release said.
