Chinese phone manufacturer reportedly banned from importing and selling handsets in India: NDTV

The Delhi High Court in India has reportedly granted an ex parte injunction order against Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi for allegedly infringing on Ericsson's Standard Essential Patents (SEPs), according to a report published on NDTV's website.

The NDTV report comes from SpicyIP which said that the injunction stops the Chinese manufacturer from "selling, advertising, manufacturing or importing devices" that infringe upon Ericsson's patents.

As of now it is not clear if the injunction means a total ban on Xiaomi handsets in India, or if only a few models are affected.

According to reports,  e-tailer Flipkart is also implicated in the case.

"While we haven't received an official notice from the Delhi High Court, our legal team is currently evaluating the situation based on the information we have," Xiaomi India Head, Manu Jain told NDTV.
