Default Huawei’s Mate 10 will reportedly come to AT&T in February

(see update; post #10)

The world’s third-largest smartphone brand remains relatively unknown in the United States, but next year, that could start to change. According to The Information, Chinese smartphone giant Huawei hopes to make a big splash in the US in 2018 by debuting a flagship phone on AT&T. It would mark the first time that a US carrier has pushed a high-end, Huawei-branded smartphone.

Though high-end Huawei phones are already available in the US, it’s been through stores like Best Buy and Amazon. But the first stop for many smartphone shoppers is at their phone carrier, and there, Huawei hasn’t had much luck. Some of its lower-end phones have been available, but they haven’t been heavily advertised. For Huawei, they’re also less of a success, since they have lower profit margins than pricier devices.

Hauwei’s latest flagship, the Mate 10, will reportedly debut on AT&T in February. The company is also planning a $100 million advertising push in the US next year, according to The Information. The report follows comments made earlier this month by Huawei’s consumers business president, Richard Yu, who said that Huawei “will sell our flagship phone, our product, in the US market through carriers next year.”

Bloomberg also reported this month that Huawei is negotiating with Verizon to carry its flagship phones. That report also said that fellow Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi — which has fluctuated between being the fifth and sixth largest smartphone vendor in recent quarters — is working on deals with AT&T and Verizon, too.

Still, even some success in the US could help Huawei grow in a notable way. The company is on pace to overtake Apple as the second-largest phone vendor — and it already did, briefly, earlier this year.

article comment:
Samsung, LG and Apple are in for a ride once Huawei starts selling phones in the US over carriers.
Huawei is the only Android phone that is widely available where you can backup everything to a backup folder which can be on the microSD, USB stick or internal memory. Once customers figure it out… they buy Huawei. Makes migrating from old to new phones extremely quick. Plus you don’t have to put anything into the cloud.

Huawei is the biggest thief of American IP I know of. They are indirectly backed by the Chinese government and the use of thier servers is forbidden in many countries because of thier spy software.

Ditto on first thought coming to mind. I will not buy Chinese brand phones, laptops, routers, etc.

AT&T pulls out of deal to sell Huawei phones in the US

AT&T has backed out of a deal with Huawei to sell the company's new flagship smartphone in the US, as reported by The Wall Street Journal and independently confirmed by The Verge. Huawei was set to announce the partnership this week at CES 2018 before AT&T canceled the arrangement at the last minute; the Chinese giant has already blanketed Las Vegas in advertising for its Mate 10 Pro phone.

It's not clear why the deal is off, but Huawei is likely to announce US availability for the Mate 10 Pro anyway, since the company already sells unlocked devices online and through certain retail stores in the country. But making a flagship phone available on a major carrier would have represented a huge leap in profile for Huawei, which is the world's third biggest smartphone vendor but has often been the subject of suspicion from American companies and politicians.
