The settlement ends a pair of suits arising from a complaint Maxell initially filed against ZTE USA Inc. in November 2016. The patents-in-suit cover various technologies used in smartphones, including camera patents, a cellular data transmission patent, a power supply management patent, two audio decoding patents and a walking location patent.
