Apple has just sent out the press invite for an iPhone event on October 4th, 2011 at 10am, if you want to check out the event, here it is below. Its an interesting time for the iPhone since Samsung is rumors to be working on a legal move to block sales of Apple’s smartphone by seeking a court injunction either in Europe or South Korea. The release of the iPhone should give an indication of whether or not the Samsung will be able to proceed.

If the speculation that Samsung is looking to move a global iPhone 5 ban, this would be seen as a strong retaliation against Apple considering that the South Korean company has been mostly on the defensive with its top customer. Currently Samsung and Apple are in litigation over about 20 patent cases in nine countries including the US, Australia, South Korea, Japan and the UK.

Exciting stuff not only for new hardware but for the patent wars as well!
