Huawei’s suing Samsung in the US and China and the other is considering suing back. The Chinese manufacturer is looking at patents involving 4G technology, user interface and OS being infringed. It’s not uncommon to see suits filed in order to force the target company to the table for licensing negotiations or get certain terms in those negotiations.

Sources to The Korea Herald have said that Huawei wants a cross-licensing deal with Samsung for a some of the chaebol’s 4G patents — it owns 954 of them, more than any other entity.

Huawei has some security issues in entering the US network equipment market,” one source said. “With the latest lawsuit, it would seek to elevate its brand image.”

Samsung may pull the trigger on its countersuit in the US “as early as July”. It’s said that cases in Korea and China would not benefit the company.
