Samsung has filed a motion requesting that Apple hand over prototypes of the iPhone 5 and iPad 3, as the bitter infringement dispute between the companies continues.
The Korean firm wants Apple to disclose future devices so that it can build up a credible defence.
"[The] samples of Apple's future iPhone and iPad products are likely the best evidence of whether there will be a likelihood of confusion between any trademarks and trade dress allegedly embodied in those products and the future Samsung products that will be in the market at the same time," Samsung said in a filing posted on the The Next Web.
Samsung filed the motion after being told to hand over samples of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 by US federal judge Lucy Koh last week.
Apple believes that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringes on its designs. Key to its argument is that Samsung overhauled the design of its tablet just weeks after the iPad 2 was officially unveiled.
Samsung was also requested to provide samples of the unreleased Galaxy S2, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Infuse 4G and 4G LTE, also known as the Droid Charge.
Apple has yet to seek a preliminary injunction against Samsung, so the Korean manufacturer is able to continue selling its devices at present.
However, an injunction might not be far off after judge Koh recognised that Apple has produced evidence to suggest possible infringement on Samsung's part.
Since its push into the mobile market, Samsung has consistently been the main challenger to Apple in the smartphone and tablet spaces.
Samsung has shipped over 10 million Galaxy S units since its launch in June last year, and the Galaxy Tab sold two million up to the beginning of 2011, driving the company to its most profitable year ever.
