Legal Recently, the ITC ruled in favour of Samsung, issuing an exclusion order against certain Apple products, barring them from being sold in the US. Several people have called upon president Obama to step in and overrule the decision (e.g. this guy) - however, not only would this set a very bad precedent for non-US companies, it would also simply be incredibly unfair if you actually look at the ITC ruling itself. Because of this, it is quite unlikely that Obama will step in.

You wrote "The ITC reviewed the negotiation history and materials between Samsung and Apple, and found that Samsung's offered licensing terms were reasonable, fair, and non-discriminatory. In other words, Samsung offered Apple FRAND licensing terms for the patent in question, but Apple simply refused to accept them."

Why would the ITC reviewed this point and why would Samsung have offered FRAND terms to Apple if those patents are not SEP?

You wrote: "the Commission found that there were still disputed issues concerning the patent at issue was even actually essential to the standard"

Which imply that this is not a fact, only a doubt. Who is lying?

And please, answer to the question: why didn't Samsung ask the same terms to Apple for the new Qualcomm chips?
