AT&T has decided not to carry phones by Chinese smartphone maker Huaawei after concerns about security

AT&T has decided not to carry phones by Chinese smartphone maker Huaawei after concerns about security.

US lawmakers in December inked a letter to the Federal Communications Commission that outlined longstanding concerns that Huawei's products could be used to spy on the USA and the company's presumed ties to the Chinese government.

Yu said his company's smartphone, the Mate 10 Pro, will still be coming to the USA, but only as an unlocked device sold through retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon. But according to The Wall Street Journal, the carrier backed out of the deal without any explanation.

Huawei is the fourth-biggest smartphone maker globally because of its massive popularity in Asia, according to IDC. "They need Huawei", he added.

The refusal is the latest example of a Chinese company struggling to develop its United States business. As for what that actually means within the broader context of the company, here's Huawei's talking point: "In this new role, Ms. Gadot will help shape the company's brand experiences and play an active role in listening to and providing ongoing ideas to inform how Huawei will bring the best experiences to its consumers". "Sometimes that's good for consumers and business; sometimes it is not", the partner said.

AT&T was pressured to drop the deal after members of the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees sent a letter on December 20 to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) citing concerns about Huawei's plans to launch consumer products through a major U.S. telecom carrier. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer products division, addressed the void agreement at his CES keynote speech, in which he presented the Mate10 Pro for the US market.

It's unclear exactly how many of Samsung's devices were using this technology - the court ruling did not ban the sale or manufacture of specific phone models - but this could be a serious problem for the company, given the size of China's smartphone market.

During his keynote on Tuesday, Yu still announced the launch of the Mate 10 in the US, but the smartphones will be sold through retailers, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Microsoft.

Back in 2016, Huawei sued Samsung for allegedly violating several of its patents. Carriers will select Huawei.
