  • Huawei Defeats Samsung In Patent Battle

The ruling came a year after Huawei brought the suit against Samsung in May last year, claiming the Korean tech infringed its patent rights.

Meanwhile in other courts the two are suing one another over patents.

"Huawei-patent-war-continues-Samsung-fires-back_id83428" class="local_link" >multiple claims against each other past year - Samsung alleging that the Honor and Mate 8 handsets unlawfully employed some of its smartphone patents; while Huawei had issued proceedings in both China and the USA two months earlier, seeking compensation for unlicensed use of its 4G tech.

The Chinese smartphone company was granted the victory after a Chinese court found that Samsung had infringed on Huawei's smartphone cellular technologies.

Samsung has countersued, though, and is alleging that Huawei's Honor and Mate 8 handsets contained technology that infringe Samsung intellectual property.

Huawei was the world's third-bestselling smartphone-maker in 2016 and Samsung the first, according to market research firm IDC.

Intellectual Property cases in China have in the past been met with speculation that they are politicized or used for protectionist purposes.

A spokesman for Huawei told the BBC: "Huawei notes the court's decision in this case". As a result of the court's decision, three Samsung units have to pay the damage and five firms have to stop using Huawei's patents.

"Huawei does not believe that this decision will adversely affect its global business operations".
