The HTC One could be banned from shipping to the U.S. after a preliminary ruling last week said HTC had infringed on two Nokia patents.
In order to avoid that, HTC and Qualcomm are reportedly reworking a radio chip for the HTC One smartphone, the Wall Street Journal reports. The paper adds that other new devices also use the same technology that could be banned by the ITC, the paper reported.
The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) made a preliminary ruling last week that Taiwan's HTC had infringed on two Nokia patents.
Nokia has also filed a case against the HTC One in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in May. This time
Nokia accused the HTC One and several other smartphones of infringing three Nokia patents. Besides litigation in the U.S., Nokia also filed lawsuits against HTC in German courts in Dusseldorf, Mannheim and Munich.
The ITC is expected to reach a full decision in late January 2014.
