  • Samsung is preemptively suing Oura to prevent patent infringement lawsuits over its upcoming Galaxy Ring.
  • The lawsuit alleges Oura has a history of suing competitors over common smart ring features, and Samsung expects to be targeted next.
  • Samsung hopes to obtain a ruling from the court confirming that its new Galaxy Ring does not infringe on Oura’s patents.

Samsung is preemptively suing Oura to obtain a declaratory judgment of non-infringement on five of Oura’s patents. The company has taken this legal action before the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Ring, a new competitor in the smart ring market, which Oura currently dominates.

Furthermore, the suit also confirms that Samsung plans to sell the Galaxy Ring in the US starting in August.
