Rumors that Samsung (005930) had plans to file a fresh patent complaint against Apple (AAPL) following the launch of the new iPhone 5 have panned out. A new filing with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California confirms that Samsung is indeed preparing to file a complaint against Apple pertaining to LTE patents, which it alleges are being infringed by the iPhone 5. FOSSPatents reports that the Samsung filing is preliminary as the company has not yet had a chance to examine the new iPhone. Once the device becomes available, the South Korea-based company will file amendments along with an official complaint. Samsung expects its new lawsuit to cover eight patents, according to the report.
