The ongoing worldwide patent war between Samsung and Apple has taken a new turn: Apple has asked a federal court to add six more products to its lawsuit against the South Korean consumer electronics giant.

The filing follows a federal judge’s November 15 ruling that allowed Samsung “to pursue claims the iPhone5 also infringes its patents,” Reuters reported Sunday.

“Apple is also seeking to add the Samsung Galaxy S III, running the new Android ‘Jelly Bean’ operating system, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, the Samsung Rugby Pro, and the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, to its lawsuit, according to a court filing on Friday,” said Reuters.

In August, Samsung — found guilty of infringing on patents Apple holds for the iPad and the iPhone — was ordered to pay the California company $1.05 billion in damages.
