A jury in San Jose, CA, has found that Samsung Electronics willfully infringed on Apple phone patents and ordered Samsung to pay Apple $119.6 million.

The damage award was far less than Apple sought in the case, which is one of series of Apple/Samsung patent infringement suits.

But industry watchers believe the total damages could increase. The trial considered five claims by Apple of patent infringement; the jury found that Samsung had willfully infringed upon three of those. But it only awarded damages on two of the three. Judge Lucy Koh asked the jury to reconsider whether the third infringement should result in damages.

Because Samsung’s infringement of Apple patents was deemed by the jury to be willful, the judge has the option to triple the damages.
