Corephotonics says that Apple violated four of its patents in the iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 8 Plus
Apple soon will again have to play the role of a defendant in court. Israeli company Corephotonics says that Cupertino giant violated its patents in the iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 8 Plus.
Corephotonics is engaged in technologies related to cameras with two lenses. Apple, according to the plaintiff, violated four patents that were registered in the period from 2013 to 2016. They describe technologies associated with the smart lens, a method of the optical zoom and intelligent method of merging images from two cameras.
Corephotonics says that at one time Apple offered cooperation, but nothing came of it. In addition, the company received a very clear answer of the representative of the copertina. If you believe Corephotonics, «the negotiator» Apple said «it will take years and millions of dollars, before Apple will have to pay». And, given the judicial system of the United States, it really is. Even if the court finds Apple guilty, the final verdict is obviously going to sound only a few years, which will be filed many appeals.
Note that the iPhone X the claim is not specified but it is probably due to the fact that at the time of filing the new Apple not yet on sale.
By the way, you may recall that earlier this year, Corephotonics received investments from Samsung.
