Huawei announces 5G mobile phone patent licensing fee rate maximum $25/device

【Phoneauto News】On July 13th, at the 2023 Innovation and Intellectual Property Forum, Huawei announced its patent licensing rates for smartphones, Wi-Fi, and IoT devices.

Among them, Huawei’s maximum licensing rates for 4G and 5G smartphones are $1.5 and $2.5 per unit, respectively; for Wi-Fi 6 consumer devices, the licensing rate is $0.5 per unit. For devices with IoT technology as the core, Huawei’s licensing rate is 1% of the net sales price, with a maximum rate of $0.75 per unit; for devices enhanced by IoT connectivity, the licensing rate is $0.3-1 per unit.

At the same time, Huawei also launched an official licensing website at the event, which provides detailed information about Huawei’s bilateral licensing program, covering the fields of smartphones, Wi-Fi, and cellular IoT.

Huawei’s Chief Legal Officer, Song Liu Ping, said at the scene, “Huawei is willing to share its innovative achievements with the world through patents, supporting the sustainable development of global industries and businesses.”

Huawei’s Vice President and Minister of Intellectual Property, Fan Zhiyong, emphasized, “Huawei adopts a balanced strategy for patent licensing. We believe that charging reasonable patent licensing fees will incentivize innovation and promote the application of innovative achievements.” He also stated that Huawei has signed nearly 200 bilateral licensing agreements and over 350 companies have obtained Huawei’s patents through patent pools.

Previously, there were reports that Huawei was charging patent technology usage fees to approximately 30 small and medium-sized enterprises in Japan. In response, Huawei stated that the essence of the patent system is to incentivize innovation, and reasonable fees are the result of innovation, not the purpose. It is understood that Huawei has reached patent licensing arrangements with technology companies such as Samsung, OPPO, as well as automakers such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, Porsche, Subaru, Renault, Lamborghini, and Bentley.
