Huawei defeats Samsung in patent battle

Huawei defeats Samsung in patent battle

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei was expected to announce a deal to partner with us carrier AT&T.

The refusal is the latest example of a Chinese company struggling to develop its United States business.

Right now, Huawei can not do much after the collapse of the AT&T deal except to keep a low profile. AT&T also declined to comment on the latest reports.

The development is a blow for Huawei, which has its USA headquarters in Plano.

Huawei filed complaints against Samsung in both China and the USA in 2016, alleging that Samsung was infringing multiple patents relating to 4G telecommunication technologies, operating systems, and interface software. Even the company acknowledges its relative obscurity with the USA marketing tagline: "The best phone you've never heard of".

"We are compliant with the world's most stringent privacy protection frameworks and requirements and have gained the trust of over 150 million customers in the past year alone", Plummer said in an email.

Apple, the world's largest company by market capitalization, announced on Wednesday that the operation of its iCloud service in mainland China will be transferred to a state-owned firm called Guizhou-Cloud Big Data Industry Company from February 28 to comply with the country's cloud computing regulations.

Last spring, Huawei appeared to be making progress toward a deal with AT&T.

In 2012, Huawei and ZTE Corp (000063.SZ) (0763.HK) were the subject of a US investigation into whether their equipment provided an opportunity for foreign espionage and threatened critical USA infrastructure - a link that Huawei has consistently denied.

It also deeply divided the ANC, which has been in power since the end of white minority rule in South Africa in 1994. Madonsela says her understanding is quite clear about what the terms of reference of the commission should be.

US lawmakers in December inked a letter to the Federal Communications Commission that outlined longstanding concerns that Huawei's products could be used to spy on the USA and the company's presumed ties to the Chinese government.

Because of this skepticism, including the US government's rejection of several Chinese deals, Chinese investment in the United States fell to $25 billion past year from $50 billion in 2016, according to Derek Scissors, a China expert at the American Enterprise Institute.

Huawei has been flagged by lawmakers before.

He also said that he felt that security concerns raised back in 2012 - the House Intelligence Committee called the company a national security threat - were likely the cause for the deal's demise, but that the fears were unfounded. The letter also cited apprehension regarding a pending deal between Huawei and an unnamed American telecommunications company. Huawei said it complies with the law.
