Samsung And Huawei To Settle Their Two-Year-Old Patent Dispute

The Patent Dispute between Samsung and Huawei, which started from 2016 and lasts until now, has finally been decided to have a settlement agreement.

HONG KONG: Court documents show that the technology company Huawei of China and Samsung Electronics from South Korea have decided to make a settlement for their patent dispute, which has lasted for two years, in the US.

On Tuesday, the pair filed a shared motion to one of the appeals courts in the United States so as to temporarily stop the proceedings of the court over the dispute over their intellectual property. The reason for that action is because, on the 25th of February, they have taken a settlement for agreement.

Ever since 2016, two of the largest Android smartphone manufacturers have been having conflicts since Huawei stated that, without no clear evidence, Samsung had used one of Huawei technology for cellular communications without authorization. Huawei also accused Samsung of unreasonably delaying making a licensing agreement with them, which resulted in them having fights in the United States as well as China’s courts.

In response, Samsung denied Huawei’s allegations and also accused its rival of trying to get the "grossly" exaggerated licensing fees. Samsung then decided to counter sue its rival in the U.S.

Unfortunately, no reasons were given for their settlement from the joint filing mentioned above. It required the two companies to stay 30 days, then they are expected to come to a decision about the settlement. More particularly, Huawei would have to make an appeal request. Originally, they decided to take this case to trial in September.

However, these two big companies failed to respond as soon as possible to the requests for comment.

In the first month of 2018, a federal court was outpaced by a Shenzhen court in San Francisco, which rules for Huawei as well as issues an order that blocks the Chinese affiliates of Samsung from producing as well as selling its 4G LTE phones in this country. In April, a judge who is in charge of the parallel case in the U.S. demanded Huawei not to carry out the ban of the Shenzhen court.
