Last week, The US Commerce Department added Huawei into the trade blacklist, imposing restrictions that’ll make it very difficult for the company to do business with American firms. Moreover, the company will now require a license to do business in the country which will likely to be denied.

Mosquito killer Huawei $294000

Huawei is very active in protecting its rights of using the trademark and recently, a Chinese goods seller was caught selling mosquito killer lamps and earphones with Huawei Logo, afterward, it was fined 2 million ($294000) for trademark infringement.

China’s trademark office record shows Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., and Shenzhen Zhiyuan Network Technology Co., Ltd. for unfair competition disputes.

Huawei believes that the products sold by Zhiyuan Company with the words “Huawei” infringed on its rights, and it should be liable for compensation.

Matter in core:

The documents made public by the Chinese patent office reveal that the plaintiff Huawei claimed that the names of the mosquito killer lamps and earphones sold by the defendant Zhiyuan Company in the online store were marked with the words “Huawei”, and prominently used the logo similar to the plaintiff’s trademark in the page picture, constituting trademark infringement.

The defendant also used words such as “official genuine Huawei general purpose” on some product pages to conduct false publicity, which constituted unfair competition. The defendant Tang, as a one-person shareholder of Zhiyuan Company, should bear joint and several liabilities.

The defendant Zhiyuan Company argued that the word “Huawei” did not appear in the title of the mosquito killer lamp product, and the plaintiff did not have any mosquito killer lamp products, so there was no possibility of confusing consumers by misidentifying the brand.

The model of the applicable phone marked on the title of the product is an industry practice, and there is no unfair competition. The defendant Tang argued that he was not the sole shareholder of Zhiyuan Company.

Meanwhile, the total sales volume of the 9 product links involved in the case exceeded 500,000 pieces, with a sales amount of more than 7.55 million yuan ($1.11 million).

The court decided that Zhiyuan Company copied and imitated the well-known trademark “Huawei” involved in the case on the sales page of mosquito killer lamps, which infringed the plaintiff’s right to exclusive use of the well-known trademark.

The prominent use of “Huawei” and other logos on the product pages and names of eight earphones violated the plaintiff’s right to exclusive use of registered trademarks. The aforementioned actions of Zhiyuan Company violated the principle of good faith and belonged to unlawful commercial publicity in a misleading manner and fair competition.

Hence court came to that defendant Zhiyuan Company when the alleged infringement occurred, could not clarify the company’s property and his personal property. In the end, the court ruled that Zhiyuan Company and Tang X (sole shareholder) should jointly compensate Huawei for economic losses of 2 million yuan ($294000) for using its copyrighted logo on mosquito killer.

Huawei Smartwatch

As of the first month of 2023, Huawei has a variety of smartwatches that are already launched among consumers but it seems like there’s one new unique smartwatch lineup that could soon make its debut.

According to the inputs, Huawei has listed a mysterious new smartwatch lineup on the Huawei Health app with model – AOD-H1. First, we thought of being the upcoming Huawei Watch GT 4 or Watch 4 Series but there’s no confirmation found on the Huawei Health app.

Then a founding revealed that it may not be one of those, instead, Huawei could plan a whole new smartwatch lineup with brand new features.

How?

B19 is the consistent code name of all Huawei smartwatches, for example:

  • SGA-B19 for BUDS
  • AND-B19 for Cyber
  • ​​MIL-B19 for GT 3
  • RUN-B19 for GT Runner

And this doesn’t include the mainstream lineup.

Huawei’s former subsidiary Honor has always used B39 and B19 Example: MUS-B19 corresponds to GS3, and HBE-B39 corresponds to MagicWatch.

AOD:

So, AOD-H1 could be an Always on Display (AOD) dedicated smartwatch lineup? Probably, as the industry already has such smart wearables that support this display-oriented technology. However, there’s some room for high battery life and new display tech that could drive consumers’ attention, such as high resolution.

Or it could be a high-end outdoor smartwatch ready for a certain type of user. On the flip side, it may be a new smart band. Yes, possibly but not certain.

Past Launches:

Over the past year, Huawei has done a lot of experiments in the world of smartwatches such as Watch GT Cyber, which brings detachable dial functionality. The Huawei Watch Buds lets you store two wireless earbuds inside the watch face and you can flip it open just like an earbuds case to house those earphones.

Watch GT Runner is a prime example of fulfilling a specific type of consumer filled with lots of tracking exercises.

For now, there’s no official announcement available about the AOD-H1 but we’ll keep you posted.
