If you thought the Galaxy Nexus would be the latest device to get caught up in the Apple vs Samsung lawsuits currently taking place around the globe, think again.

Samsung’s mobile president, Shin Jong-kyun, told South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency that the Galaxy Nexus was designed with the company’s current legal problems in mind. He said he’s not totally sure the Galaxy Nexus “will be 100 percent free” of legal troubles, but it shouldn’t face the same scenario the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II have.

In the lawsuits currently taking place, Samsung hasn’t had the best of luck. The company has had to put a hold on sales or update devices that violate patent laws in the Netherlands and Australia. Germany and the United States have also made decisions in Apple’s favor. Samsung has filed suits against Apple in Australia and Japan that could put a hold on sales of the iPhone 4S, but it’s going to be awhile before any final decisions are made in court.

With the Galaxy Nexus set to go on sale in November, the initial release of the device should go off without a problem. Hopefully, it stays that way.
