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

"We were hoping that the AT&T partnership would pave the way for similar deals with other USA carriers", a Huawei manager told The Information.

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.

The partnership allowing Huawei to sell its Mate 10 phone through AT&T was expected to be unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

Other specifications on the device include 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage a standard, there is another model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That deal has been cancelled according to people claiming knowledge about the deal. However, the failure to secure a contract with AT&T or fellow United States giant Verizon drastically limits the Chinese company's growth in the American market.


In a statement to Reuters on Tuesday, Huawei said that the usa market presents "unique challenges" and that the Mate 10 Pro will not be sold directly by us carriers. The latter's mobile devices will not sell through a US telco anytime soon, but Android fans need not fret. The company the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the world, but concerns about Huawei's relationship to the Chinese government has mostly kept its equipment out of the US.

Officially, neither Huawei nor AT&T ever confirmed that a deal was even taking place and there's certainly no reason to expect that they would comment on this failed arrangement. "I think that we can bring value to the carriers and to consumers".

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

Huawei told CNBC in a separate statement that it will launch new products for the US market on Tuesday. Huawei has denied these allegations for years now, but it looks like AT&T was unwilling to take the risk. This is because the USA has the biggest market in terms of revenue generated.
