Samsung recently transferred 98 patents it owned in the United States to Huawei. This includes the 81 patents that Samsung transferred to Huawei in 2019, bringing the total to 179 patents. Reports claim the transfer is likely related to the renewal of the cross-licensing agreement the two companies signed in 2019 to end their patent dispute. The scope of patents involved includes patents related to telecommunications, charging, cameras, displays and others.
In a cross-licensing agreement, one party may pay more license fees than the other due to differences in the number and quality of patents between the two parties. In 2016, Xiaomi and Microsoft signed a similar cross-licensing agreement, with Xiaomi probably paying more because it had fewer patents.
The patent dispute between Samsung and Huawei is about telecom-related patents, with Huawei owning more patents. Samsung is likely to transfer patents because the cross-licensing agreement mainly covers 5G patents, and Samsung has fewer patents than Huawei in this regard. After Huawei announced the signing of a global cross-licensing agreement for patents with Oppo Guangdong Mobile Communications Co., Ltd., on 5G standards and other essential patent technology, Huawei and Samsung Group have also reached a cross-licensing agreement for their respective standard essential patent packages.
Patent cross-licensing agreements usually refer to two or more brands with good patents licensing each other their decent patent rights under certain conditions. Cross-licensing of patents reflects the parties’ respect for intellectual property rights, reduces the cost of using patents, promotes technical exchanges and research and development, and provides better products to the market.
Samsung’s Exynos chips are not at their best in the mobile phone market. For this reason, Samsung is forced to use Snapdragon high-end chips, even though it has its own chips. However, The Elec believes that Samsung has not abandoned its internal chip development plans. Samsung is now forming a new chip/AP developer. team within its mobile division, led by executive vice president Choi Won-Joon, who joined Samsung from Qualcomm in 2016. Rumors suggest that Samsung will deliver its first exclusive custom chip for the Galaxy S series in 2025. However, there is currently no plan from the company to launch a new Exynos high-end chip in 2023 and 2024.
While many know Huawei as a “mobile phone” brand, the Chinese company does much more than just mobile phones. Huawei is into general technology, from communications to smart cars. Recently, Huawei has filed a patent titled “Method and Device for Determining Aircraft Flight Strategy” with the China Patent Pub. Annou. of the National Office for Intellectual Property. The agency also granted the patent to Huawei Tech.
The patent abstract shows that it provides a method and device for determining an aircraft’s flight strategy. The method involves obtaining a first model based on the first training data, including the first aircraft pilot information within a period, the flight status information of at least one second aircraft within the first period, and the target flight strategy of the first aircraft. within the first period. The first parameter is obtained, which contains information about all three aircraft in the first period. The flight status information within the second time period and the flight status information of at least a fourth aircraft within the second time period work together. The first parameter is entered into the first model to obtain the flight strategy of the third aircraft.
This method allows the multi-agent to autonomously select the route for the aircraft through a large amount of training and learning. It can also adjust the speed of the aircraft on the route. This can also help to optimize power distribution in the terminal area and improve air transport efficiency.
