On 18 October, Nichia Corp of Tokushima, Japan filed a patent infringement lawsuit with the Tokyo District Court against Taiwan-based smartphone vendor HTC's Japanese subsidiary HTC Nippon Corp and its distributor Kanematsu Communications Ltd alleging that the white LEDs in the HTC Desire 626 smartphone sold in Japan incorporate white LED that infringe on Nichia's patents JP5177317 and JP5610056.

Nichia is seeking an injunction to indemnify the patent infringement as well as compensation for damages. Neither HTC nor HTC Nippon has yet responded to the accusation.
