Huawei unveils patent royalty for 5G tech

Chinese tech giant Huawei Technologies has unveiled a royalty for the use of its patented 5G tech.

It is seen as a step toward making its innovations more appealing, and comes in the face of US sanctions on the company.

Huawei said it will charge smartphone makers a “per unit royalty cap” of 2 dollars and 50 cents for phones capable of connecting to 5G mobile networks.

The company has filed the most international patent applications in the industry. It says its technologies are used in all 5G handsets.

The company says the rate is relatively low compared to those of its rivals.

Song Liuping, Chief Legal Officer of Huawei Technologies, said in a press conference on Tuesday that they allow companies, including those in the US, to use their patents fairly in accordance with the responsibility and obligations of a company that holds many 5G patents.

Huawei has been put on a US blacklist that bans American firms from exporting certain technology to it.

There are also moves in Britain and other countries to block the use of Huawei products.
