Chinese smartphone brand Huawei has defeated rival Samsung in a court battle, as it has won a patent infringement lawsuit against South Korea smartphone rival Samsung on Thursday, as per the information released by a Chinese court.
The court ruled in the favor of Huawei over two patents involving fourth-generation phone technology, according to a notice released through the court’s WeChat account and video of the trial.
According to the verdict, Samsung has to immediately stop selling or manufacturing products using the technology and to pay a small court fee.
The court found that Samsung “maliciously delayed negotiations” that began in July 2011 and was “obviously at fault.”
Samsung responded the issue saying in a statement that it would “thoroughly review the court’s decision and determine appropriate responses.”
