Chinese tech giant Huawei won a patent infringement lawsuit against South Korea smartphone rival Samsung on Thursday, according to information released by a Chinese court.
Court ordered Samsung to immediately stop selling or manufacturing products using the technology and to pay a small court fee.
The decision by the Shenzhen Intermediate Court is the latest in a series of deepening patent disputes between the Asian smartphone makers, which have filed against each other in the United States and China in recent years.
Huawei’s headquarters is in Shenzhen, in southern China across the border from Hong Kong. The company is the dominant player in China’s smartphone market, though globally it trails Samsung and Apple.
