"HTC has no license or authorization from Nokia to use these microphones or the Nokia technologies from which they have been developed," Nokia said. 

It said the injunction was effective until March 2014 and would prevent ST Micro from selling the components to Taiwan's HTC globally. 

HTC was very disappointed by the decision.

"We are considering whether it will have any impact on our business and we will explore alternative solutions immediately" HTC said in an emailed statement. 

Nokia which makes Lumia based on Microsoft Corp software, While the HTC uses Google Inc Software, have both been scrambling to regain ground lost to bigger rivals Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Apple Inc in the global smartphone market.

Nokia said the technology in question is "high amplitude audio capture" and enables high-quality recording of music from mobile phones. Nokia said it took apart the HTC One to confirm the microphone, which HTC called "dual membrane HDR", was the same as its own. 

In addition to this case, Nokia has filed about 40 patent infringement cases against HTC. 

Nokia's US shares were 10 cents or almost $3.17 on New York Stock Exchange in late afternoon trading.
