China's Huawei hit by last minute collapse of AT&T phone distribution deal

China's Huawei hit by last minute collapse of AT&T phone distribution deal

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 US consumers through AT&T have been dashed by new reports indicating that a pending agreement has fallen through.

The first-of-its-kind Kirin 970 processor in the built-in world of the Mate 10 Pro delivers advanced technological features - automated learning and in-depth learning - allowing the phone to learn and understand the user's behavior every day. The company has repeatedly confirmed on their USA social media accounts that the new Mate smartphone would be unveiled on January 9.

According to an explosive report out yesterday night by The Information, AT&T rescinded the deal at the last moment due to "political pressure".

Huawei already confirmed that they would be expanding into the U.S. Indeed, Huawei has been eagerly pushing the news that the Mate 10 Pro would be coming to the U.S., with more details to come at CES.

The deal reportedly died after members of both the US Senate and House intelligence committees wrote to the FCC.

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

United States communications giant AT&T has pulled out of a deal to sell Huawei smartphones, less than 24 hours before it was scheduled to announce the accord, a WSJ report has claimed.

Huawei had planned several announcements for the CES event this week, including speculation that it was ready to reveal a sales tie-in with AT&T, according to the earlier reports. Although there were positive signs that Huawei might finally sign an agreement with one or more U.S. carriers, an earlier report by Wall Street Journal claimed negotiations failed and the smartphone company will continue to sell its products through open channels. Huawei has denied these allegations for years now, but it looks like AT&T was unwilling to take the risk.

Sure, it sold phones unlocked through online retailers, but the only way to sell a real number of phones is via carrier partnerships.
