AT&T Deal To Sell Huawei Smartphones Falls Apart In 11th Hour

AT&T Deal To Sell Huawei Smartphones Falls Apart In 11th Hour

A deal between Chinese smartphone maker Huawei and AT&T to sell smartphones in the United States has fallen apart, USA business media reported Tuesday, January 9. Unfortunately, Huawei has come forward and in its own words, confirms that it will not be selling carrier-branded phones in the U.S.

The firm trails only Apple and Samsung in terms of worldwide sales and an accord with a U.S. network may have been enough to push Huawei into the No.1 spot.

"We remain committed in this market now and in the future". 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.

"On Tuesday, Huawei will introduce new products to the USA market, including availability". Huawei has been selling its phones unlocked in the United States, but most consumers still buy their phones from their carrier, which gives them an easy way to try a phone in person before buying it and to spread out the payments once they do buy.

AT&T Deal To Sell Huawei Smartphones Falls Apart In 11th Hour

So far there is no sign that Huawei is trying to strike a handset sales deal with any of the other major US mobile carriers, such as T-Mobile, Verizon or Sprint.

A report from The Information claims that the same "political pressure" situation happened here. The latter's mobile devices will not sell through a USA telco anytime soon, but Android fans need not fret.

As the Journal reports, part of the suspicions about Huawei stem from its background, which was founded in 1987 by Ren Zhengfei, a former engineer for China's People's Liberation Army.
