Today, Nokia and Samsung cross-license patent agreements for a number of technologies but we predict that Nokia’s patent fees are higher than Huawei.

According to the information, the latest Nokia and Samsung agreement covers technologies in 5G and others. Samsung will make payments to Nokia for a multi-year period beginning January 1, 2023.

“Samsung is a leader in the smartphone industry, and we are delighted to have reached an amicable agreement with them. The agreement gives both companies the freedom to innovate, and reflects the strength of Nokia’s patent portfolio, decades-long investments in R&D and contributions to cellular standards and other technologies” said President of Nokia Technologies, Jenni Lukander.

Prices:

Looking at the prices Nokia previously announced 5G patent charges with a maximum of 3 euros, which is significantly lower than the 5G patent licensing rates announced by Ericson and Qualcomm.

Qualcomm charges 2.275% to 5% of the price of the entire device. On the other hand, Ericsson’s license fee for high-end and low-end phones is 5 US dollars per unit and 2.5 US dollars per unit respectively.

Looking at Huawei, the Chinese tech maker offers the lowest price tags for 5G cross-patent charges. The company patent fee for a single smartphone that follows the 5G standard is $2.5.

Here, Huawei is selling only one type of patent, which is convenient for all of the partners.

Last year, Huawei reached 5G patent licensing and cross-licensing agreements with OPPO, Samsung, Nokia, and other companies. However, specific terms are yet to be revealed.

The U.S. wants to impose further restrictions on Huawei to completely cut off the supply chains including the goods from Qualcomm and Intel. We could just call it the latest addition to the U.S. administration’s obsession with Huawei.

Reuters reports that the U.S. Government under Joe Biden has come up with a new policy of denial to sell items to Huawei. The list of denial now goes beyond 5G to cover products for 4G, WiFi 6, WiFi 7, A.I., and high-performance cloud computing and cloud items.

A person familiar with the matter revealed that the Biden administration wants to tighten its grip on Huawei and the reversing the approval of 4G chip technology transfer. However, these chips were also approved under the early office of Biden himself.

Back in 2019, the former U.S. president ordered to put Huawei into the so-called Entity List, which bans other companies from selling their goods to Huawei. This led to massive outages in Huawei’s supply chain, as the intent was to empty Huawei from all of its tech access.

So, It lost Google mobile services, 5G chipset, and other crucial components used in telecom products. These sanctions didn’t have effect immediately but the U.S. government staged them to check the impact on the Chinese tech maker.

Qualcomm and intel are one of these companies that were approved to ship their chip to Huawei. Thereafter, Huawei continues to use Qualcomm chips in its all products whether its flagship, mid-range, or tablet device. Therefore, the U.S. likely come upfront to cut Qualcomm and Intel from Huawei.

For the time being, reports are colliding that the latest decision has been made, while a few suggest that the decision is under discussion. Either way, it’s a decision made by a government sitting in a fantasy land and licking a fantasy popsicle.

Huawei Fantasy?

Why not? The U.S. banned Huawei out of nowhere, and the U.S. government puts a ban on Huawei every year to showcase in the name of protecting U.S. citizens, while it’s just a matter of some headlines that come after such a step.

The U.S. administration thinks that attacking Huawei means attacking China, while the U.S. continues to ship a large number of technologies to many big Chinese smartphone makers. Would, the U.S. also consider cutting ties with them as well, it won’t be a matter of national security.

Truth be told, Huawei is the only company that dominated both the network and smartphone market, and there’s an old saying “When you can’t beat the odds change the game”. Odds have always been in favor of Huawei but the U.S. is continuously changing the game since 2019. But the question is, for how long?
