Report Says Huawei Failed to Reach Smartphone Sales Deal With AT&T

Report Says Huawei Failed to Reach Smartphone Sales Deal With AT&T

Now Huawei confirmed the report and said the highly-anticipated Mate 10 Pro will not be sold in the United States through local carriers.

Reports from The Wall Street Journal and other outlets say that AT&T was ready to announce a distribution deal with Chinese smartphone maker Huawei, but the deal fell through at the last minute.

Huawei's flagship device - the Huawei Mate 10 Pro was gearing up to be available in the USA through a partnership with network carrier AT&T. In that letter the committees raised concerns about Huawei's plans to launch consumer products in the U.S. Huawei and fellow Chinese firm ZTE were both considered potential threats to security of the U.S. and in 2012 the House intelligence committee said that both firms should be barred from any major acquisitions or mergers in the U.S.

Huawei was supposed to announce its deal with AT&T during CES 2018 this week, but AT&T apparently canceled its arrangement with the Chinese phone maker.

For many consumers it can be simpler to buy their smartphones directly from their mobile carriers where the handsets can be set up with a SIM card, data transfer services and related application services that make it easier to switch to a new phone brand.

In any case, all is not lost for the company since there are other carriers that it can do business with. It was heavily rumored that AT&T would be selling Huawei's flagship smartphone in the US, but it looks like the carrier backed out of the potential deal.

"On Tuesday, Huawei will introduce new products to the US market, including availability". However, Huawei will continue on its determined campaign to pierce through the lucrative North American market.

Seemingly unmindful of the setback, Huawei made known of its resolve to have a get-go on the US market.
