Samsung Electronics has been sued in the US by non-practicing entity (NPE) which has earlier purchase patents related to wireless charging technology from LG InnoTek.

Ireland-based Scramoge Technology had filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung Electronics and Samsung Electronics America at a federal court in Texas on April 30.

Scramoge Technology claim in the lawsuit that Samsung infringed on its three patents __ 9,553,476·9,825,482 and 9,997,962 __ related to wireless charging technology. The company claimed a total of 28 devices, from Galaxy S6 Edge to Galaxy S21, violated these patents.

The patents mentioned are part of the 123 Scramoge Technology bought from LG InnoTek in February for around 5 billion won.

Scramoge Technology is run by a manager at Irish hedge fund Magnetar Capital. Magnetar Capital also operates another NPE called Solas OLED, which had patent lawsuits with Samsung Electronics, Samsung Display and LG Display, starting in 2019. LG Display recently settled its lawsuit with Solas OLED.

LG InnoTek last year exited the wireless charging business. This was from its main customer LG Electronics becoming more and more marginalized in the smartphone market.

More phones are adopting wireless charging features. Apple’s iPhone SE launched last year had the feature.
