Samsung Electronics had launched smartphone Galaxy S3 in several countries a few weeks ago but is yet to hit the U.S. market. It has decided to launch the smartphone in the U.S. as planned despite the fact that the Apple had filed a sales injunction request against it in a court.

"Samsung believes Apple's request is without merit. We will vigorously oppose the request," Reuters quoted the South Korean electronics giant as saying in a statement.

"We would also like to assure consumers that the U.S. launch and sales of the GALAXY S III will proceed as planned," it added.
