Seoul - The chiefs of Samsung Electronics Co. and Apple Inc. will meet to discuss settling a bitter two year legal battle over designs and technologies of smartphones and tablets.

A filing with the US District court in San Jose showed Thursday the CEOs will meet by or before February 19.

The agreement was made in response to a court order to submit a proposal for settlement discussions before a new trial begins in March.

The same court ordered them to meet in 2012 for settlement talks.

Samsung declined to comment.

Many industry watchers predict the two companies will ultimately settle patent lawsuits outside court.
