China warns of United States protectionism after Huawei setback

Huawei lost AT&T and Verizon due to political pressure but gains Wonder Woman

Huawei is the world's third largest smartphone vendor by volume after Samsung Electronics (005930.KS) and Apple Inc (AAPL.O), but it has a mere 0.5 percent share of the USA smartphone market, compared with 39 percent for Apple and 18 percent for Samsung, according to industry tracker Canalys.

This wasn't totally unfounded though.

AT&T has reportedly backed out of its initial deal with Huawei, but the Mate 10 Pro will still be sold in the United States through a number of online stores. The major USA carrier generally classified the reasons as "political pressure".

Huawei didn't quite have the CES 2018 coming out party for the US market that it may have wanted.

"We win the trust of the Chinese carriers, we win the trust of the emerging markets. and also, we win the trust of the global carriers, all the European and Japanese carriers. The canceled deal is a big loss for us, and also for carriers, but the more big loss is for consumers, because consumers don't have the best choice".

Huawei CEO Richard Yu told a keynote audience why its new Mate 10 Pro smartphone is more advanced and more secure than both Apple and Samsung devices. Huawei eventually established a United Kingdom office, overseen by the government, to investigate its own kit for security flaws.


The flagship Mate 10 Pro that was to be introduced is Huawei's most high-end product to date, equipped with its own AI-powered chips that Huawei says process data much faster than those used by Apple and Samsung. The Chinese telecommunications firm has been suspected of working closely with the country's government in the past past.

Huawei has expressed frustration about the earlier ban, calling it groundless.

Huawei filed complaints against Samsung in both China and the USA in 2016, alleging that Samsung was infringing multiple patents relating to 4G telecommunication technologies, operating systems, and interface software.

"We are serving over 70m people worldwide".

Regarding the Wall Street Journal report which claims the deal was scuttled due to security concerns, Huawei spokesman Chase Skinner said - " privacy and security are always our first priority.

As ever, CES remains the only place to geek out over all your favorite tech and watch some real-time company drama.
