The fight did not last: Xiaomi and Huawei wants to settle

Two of the biggest tech giants of China are in serious dispute as Huawei sued Xiaomi for illegal patent use of 4g and camera technologies. The latest news show that parties are trying to find a way that works for both.

Many companies in the smartphone market influence each other with new technologies and designs, but sometimes cases of "copying" arise, and companies begin to seek their legal rights. Last year, Huawei Consumer Business Group's CEP and Executive Director, Yu Chengdong, said that "some companies" were copying their design and features. Those copied designs are features patented by Huawei and must be paid a fee for use or claim any right.

Recently, Huawei sued Xiaomi for copying its patented technologies without paying any fees or letting them know. Huawei filed a case against Xiaomi on January 17, 2023, and the Chinese State Intellectual Property Office accepted it. According to IT Home, Huawei has sued Xiaomi for infringing its four patents. These patents include method and device for sending control signaling, method for feeding back ACK/NACK information during carrier aggregation, base station, user equipment, method and devices for obtaining panoramic images, and a lock screen method and mobile devices.

The patents involve 4G/LTE technology, mobile phone cameras, and unlocking technologies. While the 4G/LTE technology is a standard essential patent (SEP), mobile phone camera and unlocking technologies are non-SEP patents. It is a known fact in the Chinese market that Huawei's patent licensing program is very successful, and is one of the most innovative firms.

According to the latest reports, Xiaomi says, "both parties are actively negotiating on patent licensing. Both Huawei and Xiaomi believe that intellectual property licensing and cooperation are conducive to promoting innovation and public interest and believe that mediation is an effective channel to help reach licensing." Huawei and Xiaomi are tech giants, especially in the Chinese market. There is a strong possibility that both parties would shake hands after mediation and solve the matter. Huawei worked out a deal with OPPO last year. However, the discussions are ongoing, and nothing is definite.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!

    Keep up the great work, Instagram, and thanks to ghacks for keeping us in the loop with the latest tech updates!
