Asus Sues Samsung Over 4G/5G Smartphone Patent Infringement



Samsung Camera march 2024 update

Asus has not become a major player in the smartphone market. However, the company has a big range of patents, making revenue from it and services as a shield against potential legal threats. In a recent development, Asus sued Samsung over violating its 4G/5G wireless communication patents.

According to DigiTimes, Asus is suing Samsung over alleged violations of its wireless communication patents, targeting devices like the 4G/5G Galaxy phones, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5. Previously, Asus demanded a licensing fee for its patented tech but didn’t reach an agreement with Samsung.

It’s worth mentioning that Asus has recently formed Asus Technology Licensing and Innovative Sonic Limited, which is the owner of its patents. This company filed a lawsuit against Samsung in the Eastern District of Texas over a single wireless communications patent (U.S. Patent No. 10,187,878).

The patent in question is described as a ‘method and apparatus for improving a transmission using a configured resource in a wireless communication system’ and covers 4G and 5G smartphones. RPX Insight says (via Tom’s Hardware) that the patent is a standard essential patent.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 7, Watch Ultra add advanced health features: Experts react



Samsung Galaxy Watch Ultra

Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch Ultra come with the most advanced health tracking features. Regarding the AGE functionality, experts are concerned that this technology has not yet been scientifically verified.

2024 Galaxy Watch models equipped with AGE (advanced glycation end products) tracking. It is slated to be used as an indicator to prevent aging. Doctors are concerned that AGEs could lead people to make wrong decisions about health.

The Korean tech giant launched the Watch Ultra and Watch 7 on July 10, 2024. The new wearables alongside the Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 are set to hit market shelves on July 24. Samsung’s new watches are equipped with an enhanced BioActive sensor.

The upgraded BioActive sensor features new Yellow, Blue, Purple, and Infrared LEDs. These LEDs alongside the existing Red, Green, and Ultraviolet increase heart rate measurement by 30% and make AGE measurement possible.

Medical experts via Bloter say that the AGE index has not yet been scientifically verified. Lack of enough testing may lead to the presentation of data that may not be accurate enough. As a result, users could make wrong decisions about their health.

There are cases where people receive treatment even though they do not have the disease (false positives) due to the method of interpreting AGEs and glycated hemoglobin.

Cases where people do not receive treatment even though they have the disease because they only believe in the AGEs results (false negatives).

The inclusion of AGE tech may also create confusion between health management and medical treatment. Samsung’s aggressive approach towards the Galaxy Watch segment is fading boundaries between health management and medical management.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 3 Pro

Samsung Galaxy Buds 3 Pro reported having quality issues. As the issue is seemingly widespread, Samsung halted pre-orders in the US, UK, and Germany. The problem may lead to further delays in other regions and countries too.

TheVerge reported that the new silicone ear tips of the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro allegedly ripping on removal. This cause renders the earbuds useless as they can’t be reattached and using one of the spare ear tips isn’t a solution as they are of different sizes.

The Galaxy Buds 3 Pro was scheduled to be available in the market from July 24. Meanwhile, the issue caused the Korean tech giant to postpone the availability by nearly a month. It could go on sale in the US by August 28 while August 16 in Europe.

Many consumers raised similar complaints on Reddit. Samsung fans who have received their Buds 3 Pro report that ear tips have ripped during removal. The company has also published a guide on removal, restricting you to twisting the ear tips or using fingernails.

While Samsung has halted shipments, you should avoid twisting ear tips on your Galaxy Buds. If you an accused of the same symptom, contact Samsung support or visit nearby service center. Here’s what Samsung stated on the matter:

  • We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the customers who participated in the pre-sale of the Galaxy Buds 3 series and others that took place until July 18th.
  • We deeply apologize for any quality issues you may have encountered with some of the products you purchased during the pre-sale period.
