Huawei filed the lawsuits at the court in May 2016. The company said it was entitled to seek damages from companies that use its patents without proper licensing.
The Shenzhen Intermediate People's Court said Samsung should cease acts that infringe upon two 4G standard essential patents over telecommunication technology and equipment held by Huawei.
