Huawei wins patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung in China

By : |January 13, 2018 0

Looks like Samsung’s headaches are not going to end anytime soon. After losing a patent infringement case against Apple over ‘Slide to Unlock’ and some other quick link patents, the South-Korean company has lost yet another patent infringement lawsuit against Chinese technology giant, Huawei , as per the information released by the Chinese court.

The court ruled in the Chinese company’s favor over two patents involving fourth-generation phone technology, according to a notice released through the court’s WeChat account and video of the trial.

Back in 2016, Huawei filed several patent infringement lawsuits in the US and China and alleged that Samsung used its cellular technology and software patents without licenses. The judge ordered Samsung Electronics to immediately stop selling or manufacturing products using the technology and to pay a small court fee. The ruling did not cite specific phone models.


The court said it ruled in Huawei’s favor after finding that Samsung “maliciously delayed negotiations” that began in July 2011 and was “obviously at fault.” As part of the ruling, the judge ordered Samsung to halt the manufacturing and sales of devices using the aforementioned technology and to pay a small court fee. A list of phone models was not provided, though Samsung said it would “thoroughly review the court’s decision and determine appropriate responses.”
