This is just one step toward the ongoing saga. In the initial days, Huawei’s lawsuits requested a cross-licensing deal with Samsung in lieu of monetary damages or injunctions. Samsung made it clear it wasn’t playing ball with a countersuit of its own and Huawei subsequently sued Samsung in two other Chinese cities. Previously in the month of April, the Quanzhou Intermediate People’s Court ruled against Samsung, ordering the company to pay Chinese multi national telecommunication company, Huawei $11.6 million in damages. In response to its recent blow, Samsung also mentioned in the statement that it would review the decision and determine an appropriate response.

Shenzhen Intermediate Court mentioned that it ruled in Huawei’s favor after finding that Samsung “maliciously delayed negotiations” that began in July 2011 and was “obviously at fault.” After hearing the judgement, Spokesperson from Samsung quoted that “thoroughly review the court’s decision and determine appropriate responses.” Huawei’s legal victory comes days after it was dealt a setback in its efforts to expand sales in the United States, according to press reports, a planned deal to sell handsets phones through AT&T fell through.
