Huawei suffers setback in its plans to crack US

Source: Verizon also under pressure to cancel upcoming Huawei phone launch

There's no word of any other United States. carriers partnering with Huawei, so for now the company may have to keep selling its devices unlocked. Now, the smartphone maker has confirmed that that will no longer be the case. A deal with AT&T would've helped Huawei get its phones in front of many new consumers. However, the failure to secure a contract with AT&T or fellow U.S. giant Verizon drastically limits the Chinese company's growth in the American market. Huawei's CES 2018 keynote is happening tomorrow, and it'll be interesting to see what the company has to say.

In a statement to Reuters on Tuesday, Huawei said that the usa market presents "unique challenges" and that the Mate 10 Pro will not be sold directly by us carriers. It's said that Huawei was planning to announce the news Tuesday, aka tomorrow, but now the company's deal with AT&T is no more.

Currently, it is trailing behind Samsung and Apple and for those that do not know, penetrating the U.S.by selling through carriers was a golden opportunity that did not seem to take form for the tech firm.

Instead, Huawei said it would be selling its flagship device, the Mate 10 Pro, directly to consumers. However, recently there were reports suggesting that the deal has failed. It has the hashtag Mate 10 Pro, suggesting that Huawei will be unveiling its device for the USA market, just not via individual mobile carriers.

The reason blamed for the deal falling apart is pressure from the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees via a letter sent to the FCC back on December 20.

Huawei's phones won't be sold in the US through carriers. The congress members were concerned that Huawei was closely tied to the Communist Party as well as to intelligence services in China.
