LG has opposed Qualcomm’s efforts to appeal against an antitrust ruling.
LG says it failed to reach an agreement to renew a chip licensing deal with Qualcomm under the terms of the ruling.
The Korean firm says it might be forced to renew the deal on the chip designer’s terms.
Sales of LG’s V50 ThinQ 5G smartphone are reportedly in doubt after negotiations to renew a chip licensing deal with Qualcomm fell through.
According to Reuters, the South Korean firm has completed a court filing in the U.S. opposing Qualcomm’s bid to set aside a landmark antitrust ruling against the chip designer.
“If Qualcomm does not participate in negotiations with LGE in accordance with the court’s order, LGE will have no option but to conclude license and chipset supply agreements once again on Qualcomm’s terms,” read an excerpt of the filing, according to the newswire.
