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

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

Rumors about AT&T selling the Huawei Mate 10 began surfacing a few months ago, and Huawei recently confirmed that its flagship would be coming to a United States carrier in 2018.

It's been widely expected that Huawei would take to the CES 2018 stage this week and announce a deal with AT&T that'd get its phones on the carriers shelves.

Huawei appears to be committed to sell the Huawei Mate 10 Pro in the US, but through the open channel.

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.

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

Apple has promised to roll-out security patch for Safari browser application to help defend against Spectre soon. The Register originally reported the story of the "Kernel memory" leaks and design flaws in Intel processors.

According to the Wall Street Journal, AT&T, which is the second-largest provider of mobile phone services in the U.S. in terms of subscribers, changed its mind about a deal to sell Huawei phones. "US consumers need a better choice, and as a leader in technology and innovation, Huawei is prepared to fill this need", the company said in a statement provided to Reuters. "I think that we can bring value to the carriers and to consumers". It is possible that we get to know more about this in the coming weeks, but if you wanted to pick up a smartphone from the company's lineup, you will only be able to find them through online retailers or on its official USA -based store.

Huawei has continually denied allegations that it spies for China. Huawei has stated that while the Mate 10 Pro won't be offered via a carrier in the USA, it would be offered via open channels.

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.

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