Earlier this month, Xiaomi was banned by Delhi High Court from importing and selling its smartphones in India after Ericsson alleged that the devices infringe upon its essential patents. Now, PTI has reported that the Delhi High Court has allowed Xiaomi to sell Snapdragon based devices till January 8.

Xiaomi Mi 3 - Front Half




At the time of the ban, Xiaomi was selling two smartphones; the Redmi Note 3G and the Redmi 1S. The former uses a MediaTek MT6592 processor, while the latter uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. This means that Xiaomi can resume selling the Redmi 1S and the Mi 3 till January 8.

After the ban was initiated, Justice G P Mittal ordered the custom authorities to prevent the import of Xiaomi phones which infringe upon AMR, EDGE, and 3G related patents developed by Ericsson. He had also appointed three commissioners to inspect and collect documents from Xiaomi and Flipkart regarding the patent infringing devices.

Apparently, even Ericsson had filed a similar case against Gionee smartphones, but the Chinese smartphone vendor made arrangements for an out-of-court-settlement and resumed the sales immediately.
