Mobile Device Gesture Controls Targeted in New West Texas Case

December 29, 2020

Power2B, Inc. has filed suit against Samsung (6:20-cv-01183), accusing the tech giant of infringing five patents broadly directed to a device with sensors for detecting the position of objects. The plaintiff targets “object-sensing”/“gesture-sensing” features—such as “gesture controls, gesture wake up, easy mute, and easy screen turn on, and/or ‘Air gestures’ based on the position of” a detected object—within a variety of mobile devices, including the “Galaxy S4-S10 and S20 devices and associated product lines, and Samsung’s Note 3-10 and Note 20 devices and associated product lines”. The case has been initially assigned to Judge Alan D. Albright in the Western District of Texas.
