China's Huawei Features US Traction Regardless of Spying Fear

Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Back in 2016, Huawei filed several patent infringement lawsuits in the U.S. and China and alleged that Samsung used its cellular technology and software patents without licenses.

After the Huawei Mate 10 Pro presentation, Yu pulled up a slide that read "Something I Want To Share". 45 of the world's 50 biggest wireless carriers are customers of Huawei, according to ot the Wall Street Journal.

On Tuesday, Reuters reported that AT&T was pressured to back away from the Huawei deal by members of the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees who cited concerns about Huawei's alleged role in Chinese espionage efforts.

"We have been hindered by unsubstantiated, nonspecific concerns that Huawei poses a security threat", Charles Ding, a Huawei executive, said in congressional testimony the same year.

Verizon is also under the same pressure as AT&T, according to Android Police.

But the deal, which was supposed to be announced at the CES consumer trade show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, was canceled by the United States side at the last minute.

The letter to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, which was signed by 18 lawmakers, noted concerns about Chinese companies in the US telecommunications industry.

At the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, Huawei CEO Richard Yu had something more to say than just showcasing the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, going off script by the end of his keynote.

The Microsoft Store and other U.S. retailers will also offer the more expensive Porsche Design HUAWEI Mate 10 next month.

The firm will launch the latest model from its high-end Mate series in the US on February 18 for a starting price of $799, with orders accepted as of February 4, it announced this week.

"Everybody knows that in the USA market that over 90 percent of smartphones are sold by carrier channels", said the CEO.

Huawei is since years under U.S. government scrutiny, with claims of spying for the Chinese government with their products.

A representative of Huawei said on Thursday that they believe the move to protect their intellectual property rights can help promote the healthy and sustained development of the science and technology industry. Now there is a renewed effort by the United States government to hamper the growth of Huawei in the US. The UK's security watchdog also anxious about a telecoms equipment deal between BT and Huawei.
