Apple Inc had a major setback in its mobile patents battle with Samsung Electronics on Friday, as a federal judge slashed a $1.05 billion jury award by more than 40 percent and set a new trial to determine damages.

Apple won the award last year against Samsung in what was the biggest and highest-profile of a number of legal trials around the world, centered on the use and alleged abuse of patents in a highly competitive mobile market.

A judge has rejected Apple's bid to ban 26 different smartphones from Samsung, in the latest ruling in the companies' seemingly never-ending patent litigation.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has continued a temporary stay of the sales injunction on the Samsing Galaxy Nexus smartphone Apple won earlier this month. The ruling allows Samsung to continue selling the smartphone model. The expedited appeal of Judge Lucy Koh's original ruling of the sales suspension is scheduled for August 20, with a decision on the appeal following in the days or weeks after the hearing.

The injunction centers around an Apple patent that covers "unified search" technology, which Samsung is accused of infringing upon

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has approved Apple's request for a preliminary injunction in the U.S. against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1.

"Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the market with infringing products," Koh wrote on Tuesday.

Apple filed a motion for a preliminary injunction in May 2012, claiming Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringes on an iPad-related patent. Apple has also filed a similar motion against Samsung's Galaxy S III in June.
