The Korea-based electronics giant plans to fight Apple's efforts to ban sales of some of its smartphones in the U.S., according to a report.

After Apple won the jury's verdict in the high-profile patent case against Samsung , the iPhone maker requested a permanent injunction against eight of Samsungs smartphones in the U.S. market.

However, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Samsung will not go down without a fight. The report quoted Samsung on Tuesday saying it would use "all necessary measures" to fight Apple's move to ban its smartphones in the U.S.

Judge Lucy Koh, the U.S. District judge presiding over the case, will rule on the injunction September 20.

"Samsung will take all appropriate measures to ensure the availability of its products in the United States," a Samsung spokesperson said in a statement to CNBC Tuesday. The spokesperson did not state in detail what those measures would be.
