A second round of Samsung-Apple US peace talks between the two firms' chief executives attempting to resolve the ongoing patent dispute currently being fought out in a San Francisco court have failed.
According to Reuters there was no ground given between the two firms, meaning a jury will decide the outcome of the high-profile case.
The two companies met for a second time following a request by US District judge Lucy Koh, to try and resolve their ongoing dispute.
Koh reportedly made the request expressing concerns that she could "see risks for both sides".
Apple and Samsung initially had settlement talks in July just before the trial began, but the talks failed after Apple's chief executive Tim Cook and top Samsung executives could not agree on the monetary value of the patents in question.
The ongoing patent war began in 2011 after Apple accused Samsung of "slavishly copying" Apple iPad designs with its Galaxy tablets. Samsung subsequently responded to the accusation with its own slew of patent infringement claims.
Samsung and Apple's patent war has since escalated and gone global, with the two currently embroiled in 50 patent lawsuits across 10 countries.
