Almost 5 years later, Apple might finally get Samsung to pay for alleged patent infrigement.

Samsung Electronics has agreed to pay Apple US$548 million in damages in a patent infringement lawsuit in California, which will be the first shot at compensation Apple will get in the dispute that has dragged on for several years with many twists and turns.

Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit of a full-bench hearing to review the damages award in the patent dispute in the light of new information about an Apple patent. You might remember that not long after the original Samsung Galaxy phone launched, Apple sued Samsung claiming its version of Android and TouchWiz skin infringed on some technology and design patents found in iOS. The South Korean company has confirmed to Apple that it will pay the iPhone maker the damages within 10 days of the delivery of Apple’s invoice to Samsung, according to a joint case management statement filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Samsung has reserved the right to collect reimbursement if there are any further developments in the case. After a big original victory for Apple, when Samsung was ordered to pay over a billion dollars in damages, the case has gone through numerous appeals and negotiations.

But Samsung wanted a full hearing as it sought to challenge $399million out of the $548million, as the damages included all of Samsung’s profits from infringing products – even though the patents relate to only minor features of those products.
