On K. Mizra’s website, it reveals that the lawsuit was filed against Samsung on May 20th in Dusseldorf Regional Court in Germany. It says that K. Mizra’s “battery runtime prediction as implemented in Samsung devices using younger versions of the Android OS infringes the German designation of its patent EP 2 174 201 B1.” The company goes on to say that the invention delivers an “on-the-fly” prediction of the remaining life of a battery used to power a smartphone. The algorithm covered by the patent analyzes user behavior. The plaintiffs say that with the invention covered by the patent, a phone can show a more precise estimate of the amount of battery life still available on the device. K. Mizra says that it is convinced that a pre-installed Android-based feature found on Samsung Galaxy handsets calculate the remaining battery life available by using the invention covered by its patent.

Samsung is involved in a patent dispute with a business called K. Mizra LLC, which is effectively a patent troll. You may have heard the phrase “patent troll,” but if you don’t know what it means, a patent troll is a firm that acquires patents and instead of making money by operating a business, makes money by aggressively defending its rights in court. K. Mizra accuses Samsung of infringing on its smartphone battery technology in this dispute. According to Android Central, the original technology was developed by the “Nederlandse Organisatie Voor Togepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoe,” a Dutch research agency. The technology covered by the patent, according to K. Mizra LLC, is an algorithm that determines how well Samsung Galaxy devices work.

  • The company currently has litigation in progress against T-Mobile, Verizon, and Niantic. The latter case involves a patent used by Niantic to enable multi-user play on mobile games. For example, it allows Pokemon Go players to interact with each other in the same AR multiplayer session. As for the legal battle with Samsung, there could be other Android manufacturers who could end up as defendants in similar lawsuits.
