Huawei is victim of U.S. 'trust deficit'

Huawei faced a similar issue in 2012 when the USA lawmakers claimed there were long-term security risks linked with the company's network equipment and services, leading it to pull out of the U.S. market.

AT&T has decided not to carry phones by Chinese smartphone maker Huaawei after concerns about security. A second deal is also looking shaky. AT&T is the second-biggest carrier in the USA, and the collapse of the deal essentially shuts Huawei out of the United States smartphone market.

Media speculation alleged that the company is in talks to release its Huawei Mate 10 Pro in sales through the AT&T operator. Huawei planned to announce Tuesday at a Las Vegas trade show it had struck an agreement to sell its smartphones through AT&T Inc.

Its dominance comes just as big US carriers are expected to invest about $275 billion over seven years to deploy fifth generation, or 5G, networks that can carry huge amounts of data for high-quality mobile video and self-driving cars, the Journal reported. The letter, signed by 18 members of the House and Senate intelligence panels, expressed concerns first voiced in 2013 by congressional investigators.

In a statement Tuesday, Huawei said it has proven itself by "delivering premium devices with integrity globally and in the US market" for five years and looks forward to introducing new products to the USA market.

At CES, an angry Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, admitted the end of the AT&T deal was a loss for the company, "but the more big loss is for consumers, because consumers don't have the best choice".


"The US market is a unique challenge for Huawei, and although Huawei Mate 10 Pro will not be sold by US operators, we remain committed to this market now and in the future", says the official statement of Huawei. After 8 months, the Chinese court finally ruled and its decision isn't good at all for Samsung. "Huawei has treated us better than anybody".

Huawei is the fourth-biggest smartphone maker globally because of its massive popularity in Asia, according to IDC.

Back in 2012, when Huawei was better known for making broadband equipment, the United States warned that the Chinese government may be using the firm's kit to spy on foreign countries.

Huawei later extended its legal action to courts in Beijing and Quanzhou, of East China's Fujian province.

Whether Huawei will see the same success in California is anyone's guess.
