Samsung Defends Bixby and Galaxy Buds Patents Successfully in the USA

Published

By


Samsung has won a lawsuit in the US in opposition to a former employee who charged them with copying technology for Bixby and Galaxy Buds. The ex-employee used to lead Samsung’s patent team in their fights against Apple. 

The report says a US court has rejected a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung Electronics. This lawsuit was filed by a patent management firm named Synergy IP Pte. and Statern Tekiya LLC. Synergy IP Pte was brought into being by Ahn Seung-ho, a former senior Samsung Electronics employee who oversaw several audio and voice-related patents while he worked as Samsung’s head of the intellectual property center for over a decade. 

Back in 2020, he left Samsung Electronics. After leaving the firm, Ahn Seung-ho sued their former employer in 2021, claiming that the brand violated ten patents owned by an audio firm called Statern. It was claimed that Samsung Electronics unfairly used Statern’s audio technologies to develop Bixby, Galaxy Buds, and other audio devices. 

Four more patent lawsuits were filed against Samsung in 2022. However, fortunately, the court dismissed the first lawsuit against Samsung and stated that there was no need to judge whether the patents were infringed as the lawsuit itself could not be established. 

If the report is to be believed, personal Ahn Seung-ho stole confidential information on Statern from the Korean giant with the help of the brand’s trade sector official, his former subordinate. That information was used to file a patent failure to observe lawsuit against Samsung. The US court also stated that Ahn Seung-ho caused irreparable damage to Samsung Electronics by filing the lawsuit in his favor, using his position as a lawyer and the company’s internal confidential information.

Samsung has delivered this month’s May 2024 security patch for the Galaxy S23 device. Now, users of the device from several regions are reporting that after installing the patch, their Google Wallet isn’t working seamlessly. 

A couple of days ago, Google officially released a statement saying that from June 10th, Google Wallet will only be compatible with devices that at least run on Android 9 or above. Now the report is saying that Samsung’s flagship device, the Galaxy S23, users are facing issues while using Google Wallet. 

A recent report suggest that a lot of Samsung Galaxy S23 users have reported through the Korean manufacturer’s community forums that, after installing the May 2024 security patch, they cannot use the Google Wallet seamlessly and flawlessly as before. These users have claimed that right after downloading the latest Android security patch, the Google Wallet app displays an unknown error message indicating that the phone does not meet the required security standards, causing them to be unable to make contactless payments. 

Galaxy S23 users are not even able to access the cards that were linked to the platform. Noticeably, a huge percentage of reports come from Galaxy S23 users belonging to Europe; however, this issue has also been detected in other regions, including Australia, the US, or the United Arab Emirates, and other devices like the Galaxy S22 or the Pixel 8 Pro. 

If you are going through this inconvenient issue, here’s a temporary solution. You can uninstall the application updates in the Google Play Store. This will help you in a way; the error message will still appear in the app, but it will let you make payments with it again.
