Home / News / Samsung suffers a loss in China patent lawsuit against Huawei

You’ve all heard of Samsung’s legal battles with Apple. The company has also been fighting with Chinese behemoth Huawei in court for over a year now. Huawei accused Samsung of patent infringement back in 2016, it claimed that Samsung had used its 4G communications technology, user interface software, and operating systems in its smartphones without a license.

A verdict handed down in one of those lawsuits ordered Samsung to pay $11.6 million to Huawei for patent infringement. Huawei has won yet another lawsuit against Samsung now in China. Samsung also filed its own patent infringement lawsuits against Huawei but it hasn’t scored a victory as yet.

Samsung vs Huawei

Information released by a Chinese court confirmed today that Huawei has won a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung. The court ruled that Samsung infringed on two of Huawei’s patents involving fourth-generation phone technology.

Samsung has been ordered to stop selling or manufacturing the products infringing on these patents immediately but the ruling doesn’t mention any specific smartphone models.

Shenzhen Intermediate Court ruled in Huawei’s favor after observing that Samsung had “maliciously delayed negotiations” that started on July 11 and therefore it was “obviously at fault.”

Samsung is now considering its legal options. The company said that it’s going to “thoroughly review the court’s decision and determine appropriate responses.”

Samsung, you’re paying way too much attention to the Chinese market. It’s saturated by local players and lawsuits are impossible to win. Get out from the country and make a stance. But I know you won’t because even if your profit in China is only a dime, it will still be worth it to you.

Chinese court, Chinese company.. Having done business there myself, I can tell you this country is rotten to the core with corruption.. It’s even worse than Washington DC. Lol. Bribes get you what you want but even that’s not guaranteed. You could pay a bribe, then your opposition pays a bigger one. What is worse, if the case goes against you, the bribe is never returned. Same problem in Indonesia.

Huawei and Samsung were the two firsts to do a “gesture to reduce screen size for one-handed use,” and a few other really neat features.
