In papers filed in federal court in San Jose, California on Thursday, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said it will make the payment by December 14 if Apple Inc sends an invoice a day later. Asked if it had done so, Apple declined to comment over it yesterday.

The payment comes after as US appeals court last May reduced a USD 930 million judgment against Samsung by USD 382 million,  stemming from a 2012 verdict for infringing Apple patents and copying the look of the iPhone.

Another trial over remaining damages relating to some of Samsung's infringing products in the case is set to go ahead next spring.

Even though the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, DC had authorized damages to Apple in May, Samsung again appealed the final figure to the same court, and was rebuffed twice more.
