As a mark of respect to Steve Jobs, the former chief executive of Apple who died of cancer last week, Samsung has announced that it is to delay the launch of its new Nexus Prime handset.
In a statement, Samsung observed that it would be inappropriate to introduce the new wireless communication device while technology world is still mourning the loss of Mr Jobs.
Originally, Samsung planned to unveil the Nexus Prime in San Diego on October 11th.
Even though the firms are currently locked in a legal battle over the use of patents, Samsung actually enjoys a strong relationship with Apple, which is one of its component suppliers.
Last week, Samsung Electronics announced a better-than-expected profit forecast because of success in the handset market.
According to the firm, it is expecting operating profit to hit $3.5 billion (£2.3 billion) for the third quarter of this year - a rise of 12 per cent on the previous quarter.
