After its decisive win over Samsung in the patent trial Friday, Apple has formally filed a notice with the District Court in California, San Jose Division, seeking a quick ban on Samsung smartphones.

The court filing identifies eight Samsung smartphones though most of them are no longer widely available in the market, Reuters reported. The list comprises:

  • Galaxy S 4G
  • Galaxy S2 (AT&T)
  • Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket)
  • Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)
  • Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
  • Galaxy S Showcase
  • Droid Charge
  • Galaxy Prevail

However, the lawsuit encompassed 28 products. In the verdict delivered Aug. 24, Samsung was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages to Apple after the jury found that Samsung copied critical features of the iPhone and iPad.

In response to the filing, Samsung issued a statement: "We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market," The Verge reported.

However, the filing impinges on Apple to prove that it will be irreparably harmed if the handsets are not banned in the country, The Verge continued, adding that it was easier for Apple to establish harm when the focus of injunction is on products it may actually compete with in the market.

Previously, Apple was successful in securing an injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 though Samsung is planning to appeal against the ban as it does not fall under the purview of the jury's verdict. However, Apple seems to having other plans including seeking an injunction on the cellular version of Tab 10.1.

All these draw the focus to the date of injunction hearing set for Sept. 20.
