A Chinese court has ordered Samsung Electronics's China-based subsidiaries to pay 80 million yuan ($11.60 million) to Huawei Technologies for patent infringement.
Three units of Samsung have been ordered by the Quanzhou Intermediary Court to pay the sum for infringing a patent held by Huawei Device Co Limited, the handset unit of Huawei, government-run newspaper Quanzhou Evening News, reported on Thursday.
Huawei filed lawsuits against Samsung in May in courts in China and the United States claiming infringements of smartphone patents. Samsung subsequently countersued Huawei in China for IP infringement.
The court ordered Samsung to stop infringing Huawei's copyrights and ordered three Samsung units to pay the damage.
Samsung said it will decide on the response to the court's decision after reviewing the ruling.
