TechFaith Sues Samsung For Patent Infringement





BEIJING, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ: CNTF) ("TechFaith" or the "Company") today announced that it has filed suit against Samsung Telecommunications ( Tianjin) Ltd for patent infringement in the People Republic of China ( Beijing) courts. To date, the China Patents Committee has acknowledged that TechFaith's mobile phone patent (patent number 2008101134154) is effective and relevant in this current matter.

Mr. Deyou Dong, President and COO of TechFaith, said, "We have invested heavily in research and development over the years to build an extensive product catalog backed by a highly defensible intellectual property portfolio. In the case of Samsung, we are taking legal action after establishing applicability of our patent number 2008101134154, which we believe is being infringed upon in Samsung's GT-B7732 model mobile phone. We intend to aggressively pursue all remedies possible in this and in any other future instances of patent infringement in defense of our highly valuable intellectual proprietary portfolio."
