HTC must alter chip in their One smartphone to avoid Nokia patents

HTC One Android 4.3

As if HTC didn’t already have a lot to deal with, they now have to alter the design of their One smartphone and others to avoid infringing on Nokia patents. According to the Wall Street Journal, HTC is currently working with Qualcomm in order to find a different method of improving reception and transmission within the phones radio components, following a successfull patent suit by Nokia in the US a week ago.

If these changes do not occur and the ITC upholds Nokia’s victory when the matter is considered in January then HTC may find a number of models could be subject to import bans.
