The latest version of Samsung Electronics Co's flagship smartphone, Galaxy S, will go on sale in the US market as planned, despite a sales injunction request filed by Apple to a US court.
"Samsung believes Apple's request is without merit. We will vigorously oppose the request," the South Korean firm said in a statement.
"We would also like to assure consumers that the US launch and sales of the Galaxy SIII will proceed as planned."
US sales of the third generation Galaxy S model, which hit store shelves in some 28 countries last week, have been widely expected to start later this month.
