Samsung loses China patent lawsuit against Huawei

The patent infringement spat between Huawei and Samsung took shape in 2016 amid mounting competition between two of the world's largest smartphone vendors. 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.

The letter to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, which was signed by 18 lawmakers, noted concerns about Chinese companies in the USA telecommunications industry. "Huawei has treated us better than anybody".

While Huawei does sell its smartphones in the US, 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. It would not only have given Huawei a foothold in the United States market, where more than 90 per cent of phones are sold through carriers, but also been a new source of revenue for AT&T and offered another option, besides Apple and Samsung, for USA consumers.

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. -based telecommunications company AT&T has made a decision to back away from a deal to sell Huawei's smartphones in the U.S. Huawei had been expected to announce the deal at CES that day.

Huawei CEO Richard Yu went off script during his keynote at CES 2018. According to reports, a deal with AT&T to sell the Mate 10 Pro has fallen through, according to the WSJ. "We win the trust of the Chinese carriers, we win the trust of the emerging markets. and also we win the trust of the global carriers, all the European and Japanese carriers", Yu said.

The letter notes the committee's concerns "about Chinese espionage in general, and Huawei's role in that espionage in particular". Incidentally, AT&T was the first mobile carrier for Apple when iPhone hit the market 11 years ago.

In 2012, a United States congressional committee said Chinese Huawei and ZTE would be banned from mergers and acquisitions in the USA because the two companies pose a threat to U.S. security. Other countries around the world do not have that issue with Huawei. "Sometimes that's good for consumers and business; sometimes it is not", the partner said. The four leading US carriers have connections with several of the top mobile device manufacturers, including Apple and Samsung Electronics.
