Coolpad's China-based business has sued Xiaomi for violating its patented technology. Coolpad Group's Yulong Computer Telecommunications Scientific business unit filed lawsuits against three Xiaomi entities: Xiaomi Telecom Technology, Xiaomi Technology, and Xiaomi Factory. Coolpad says Xiaomi is violating patents that pertain to the design of dual SIM card designs and technology related to the user interface. Yulong Computer wants Xiaomi to cease producing and selling some of its phones, including the Mi Mix 2, Xiaomi's flagship device. Coolpad is seeking compensation for lost revenue, though the company did not provide a dollar amount. Xiaomi is trying to have the patents invalidated through a separate lawsuit. Yulong Computer owns and operates Coolpad Americas, which sells budget devices in the U.S. Xiaomi has a large presence in its home market of China and in India, and recently announced plans to expand to Europe. Xiaomi said it hopes to begin selling phones in the U.S. later this year. Xiaomi recently filed for an IPO that is valued at $10 billion.
