HONG KONG/TAIPEI -- Huawei Technologies' mounting legal troubles in the U.S. have given smartphone rivals such as Samsung Electronics a chance to regain lost ground as they battle the Chinese tech giant for share in a slowing global market.

Smartphone makers who have felt the impact of Huawei's aggressive growth in recent years stand to benefit if Washington moves to ban U.S. exports of vital components to the world's second-largest handset maker, say analysts and industry experts.
