43 sec read

Careful what you say about Samsung’s latest smartphone — the wrong thing could apparently cost you a fortune. Korean-language MediaToday is reporting that Samsung has filed a 300 million won ($285,000) lawsuit against South Korean newspaper Electronic Times over negative Galaxy S5 press that Samsung feels could pose a huge problem for its business. Details are scare and Google’s machine translation is practically impossible to make sense of, but AppleInsider says the lawsuit pertains to negative comments made about the Galaxy S5′s camera. 

Samsung has sued Electronic Times for 300 million KRW (about $284,000 US) regarding its reporting related to the company’s new Galaxy S5 phone. According to a report by the Korean language MediaToday (machine translation), Samsung is taking issue with negative reports related to the Galaxy S5 camera. Samsung alleges the news source published incorrect information, while the news site appeared to defend its reports, stating that “the story fits the facts” and was not a “false alarm.” Samsung expressed concerned that unflattering reports might cause customers to hesitate before buying its new flagship model during the critical launch quarter, and just as the company is seeking to placate investors concerned about the previous Galaxy S4 failing to meet its sales expectations.
