The new facility will be built by downtown San Jose in California
A subsidiary of Samsung said it will expand its sales and research and development (R&D) headquarters in Silicon Valley.
Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. (SSI) is looking to build a 1.1 million square foot sales and R&D headquarters to encourage "interaction among staff, foster connections with the community and provide a space to attract employment."
The new facility will be built by downtown San Jose in California, and will be designed by architecture company NBBJ. It will be a 10-story building complete with a parking lot and amenity pavilion.
Samsung is a major mobile superpower in the U.S. It builds the hardware for Android-powered devices, which fiercely competes with Apple's iOS-powered iPhone. In fact, Samsung hopes to sell
390 million smartphones
Just last week, it was reported that
Samsung was looking to ban Ericsson products
in the U.S.
Samsung claimed that Ericsson stole its patents regarding telecommunications networking equipment like base stations
It seems like Samsung has learned a thing or two from its list of patent infringement lawsuits with Apple. Samsung and Apple's relationship has been tense ever since the string of patent infringement lawsuits were launched against one another. Apple flung the first suit back in April 2011, calling Samsung an iPad/iPhone copycat. From there, the two launched several patent lawsuits around the world, and even
successfully banned a few products
(i.e., the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1).
Apple had a major victory this year when
a U.S. jury decided that Samsung indeed was infringing
on Apple's mobile patents. Samsung was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages

Perhaps they've learned that the local boy gets treated favourably in court.

Apple's patents in that case were ridiculous making the suit frivolous all together, but in that case I think the smoking gun was the internal Samsung emails saying they've got to copy the iPhone.
There were many other factors like a patent holder was allowed to be the jury foreman and skew the jury, Samsung's lawyers botched the discovery so some evidence was not allowed in court, but the internal Samsung emails were damning.

Because we all know the patent system isn't broken.
