Korean electronics maker Samsung has asked a federal judge to make Apple give it samples of its next-generation iPhone and iPad.
The demand is part of an ongoing trademark battle between Apple and Samsung. Earlier this month, Apple asked Samsung to reveal several of its newest smartphones and tablets as part of the discovery phase of a lawsuit Apple filed against Samsung.
The court is requiring "reciprocal disclosure".
Samsung on Friday asked a U.S. District Court judge in California to force Apple to give it "a sample of the final, commercial version of the next generation iPhone that Apple will release, whether that product will be known as the 'iPhone 4S,' 'iPhone 5,' or some other name."
The Korean company made a similar demand for "the next generation iPad that Apple will release, whether that product will be known as the 'iPad 3,' 'Third Generation iPad,' or some other name."
