Huawei Mate 10 Pro Won't Be Sold In The US Through AT&T

  • Huawei's CEO of consumer electronics Richard Yu announces the Mate 10 Pro for the U.S

Rumors that surfaced in December that Chinese smartphone maker Huawei was working on a first-of- its-kind deal to sell its handsets directly to USA consumers through AT&T have been dashed by new reports indicating that a pending agreement has fallen through.

Huawei said in a statement to Reuters on Tuesday that its flagship premium smartphone Mate 10 Pro - Huawei's challenge to the iPhone - will not be sold in the United States via a telecoms carrier but only through open channels. Huawei told Reuters that while it will sell the Mate 10 in the U.S., it will only be through "open channels" and not via any wireless carrier. This follows closely on news that AT&T would cancel its own launch of the Mate 10 Pro for similar reasons. Now, the smartphone maker has confirmed that that will no longer be the case. The award will be presented during the CES show in Las Vegas from 9 to 12 January 2018.

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

According to an explosive report out yesterday night by The Information, AT&T rescinded the deal at the last moment due to "political pressure".

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.

Huawei Consumer Business Group has won an award from the Android Authority, the largest smartphone assessment and review organization, with Huawei's Mate10 Pro winning the "Best 2017 Smartphone" award.

Huawei was widely expected to announce a partnership with AT&T to distribute its phones in the United States this year, said the people with knowledge of the matter, who declined to be identified as the talks were private.

An expected partnership with US carrier AT&T to distribute Huawei phones in the United States appeared to have fallen through, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. The letter, which was seen by The Information, reportedly "cited an intelligence committee report on Huawei's alleged ties to the Communist Party as well as China's intelligence and security services".

Huawei's phones won't be sold in the US through carriers.
