Huawei wins patent infringement case against Samsung

Huawei defeats Samsung in patent battle

Huawei announced at the CES 2018 to launch the pre-order for the new Huawei Mate 10 Pro smartphone in the United States on February 4, which is Super Bowl Sunday.

During an emotional keynote at CES 2018 this week, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, said that its failed AT&T deal was "a big loss" for consumers and one less smartphone option for many users.

Huawei, which appeared to lose a deal with AT&T that would have given it an improved foothold in the United States handset market, faced criticism from U.S. lawmakers over its intellectual property protection and its ties to Chinese intelligence, according to a letter seen by AFP this week.

Huawei filed complaints against Samsung in both China and the United States in 2016, alleging that Samsung was infringing multiple patents relating to 4G telecommunication technologies, operating systems, and interface software.

But Huawei's dominance is again stoking fears among Washington security and intelligence experts, who worry major US carriers might be tempted to turn to the Chinese giant.

Nobody here talks about her. "I'll never talk about her again, but then you can't talk about the 2016 election". "I'm not, I haven't mentioned the election once", Cuomo replied.

As for why AT&T dropped out of the deal, the reasons were reported to be somewhat controversial.

While Huawei does sell its smartphones in the USA, it does so without the benefit of a partnership with any of the country's four major wireless carriers, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon Wireless. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro has also been voted as phone of the year by Android 2017. But the longest lasting flagship isn't one of them as the title belongs to the Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

"The U.S. market presents unique challenges for Huawei, and while the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro will not be sold by U.S. carriers, we remain committed to this market now and in the future", it said.

Huawei "worries about getting the problem fixed first and then worries about getting paid", Union Wireless' customer relations officer Brian Woody told the Journal.

Huawei is since years under USA government scrutiny, with claims of spying for the Chinese government with their products. "The canceled deal is a big loss for us, and also for carriers, but the more big loss is for consumers, because consumers don't have the best choice". At the time, Huawei hit out at worldwide "protectionism". The UK's security watchdog also anxious about a telecoms equipment deal between BT and Huawei.
