Samsung hints that it will file a countersuit against Huawei as revenge against the manufacturer
Huawei's suit in the U.S. states that Samsung infringed on as many as 11 patents related to the ability of mobile devices to run on 4G LTE networks. While Huawei did not mention a precise figure in its suit, it is seeking a percentage of the billions of dollars made by Samsung. Huawei is not asking for an exclusion order which would ban the offending devices from being sold in the U.S.
Huawei has filed the same case against Samsung in the Shenzhen People’s Court in China. The suits involve the the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world (Samsung with a 23.2% market share) and the third largest (Huawei has an 8.3% slice of the global smartphone pie). Despite the threat of a countersuit. Huawei is hopeful that Samsung won't escalate the matter. "We have a good history of licensing and cross-licensing of our peers," said Huawei spokesman William Plummer. "We hope that Samsung will do the right thing."
