Samsung loses to Huawei in Chinese patent case

The Quanzhou Intermediary Court in China ruled against Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. in a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Reuters reported April 6, citing the Chinese-language Quanzhou Evening News.

Three of Samsung's China-based units were ordered to pay $11.6 million for patent violations found in 20 models of Samsung phones and tablets, including the Galaxy S7. The verdict is a result of a lawsuit filed in May 2016 by Huawei in China and the U.S.

The Chinese telecom equipment maker reportedly wanted to be compensated for more than 30 million products that generated $12.7 billion in sales for the South Korean company.

A spokesman for the Samsung Group unit said it would review the court's decision before deciding on a response, according to the report.
