Huawei Mate 10 Pro Wins the Best Smartphone Award of 2017

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.

Huawei Technologies said on Tuesday that its flagship smartphone Mate 10 Pro will be sold in the United States through the open channel and not by US carriers.

Huawei confirmed the news at CES 2018 in Las vegas, Nevada. The company has repeatedly confirmed on their US social media accounts that the new Mate smartphone would be unveiled on January 9.

That may be good news for consumers, but that not might bode well for Huawei.

"The U.S. market presents unique challenges for Huawei, and while the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro will not be sold by U.S. carriers, we remain committed to this market now and in the future", the electronics giant said in a statement.

It is noteworthy that "Android Authority" Foundation this year, has conducted more than 40 tests on smart phones to participate in the evaluation, which Mate 10 Pro phone has passed, earning the best smart phone in the world for 2017.

The company has been trying to penetrate the USA market for years now and its success hinges on selling its phones through carriers.

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. The Wall Street Journal and The Verge both reported that AT&T backed out of the deal for some unknown reason.

AT&T has never confirmed reports that such a deal was under consideration and it again refused to comment on the matter on January 8 in an email exchange with eWEEK. The congress members were concerned that Huawei was closely tied to the Communist Party as well as to intelligence services in China.

An expected partnership with US carrier AT&T to distribute Huawei phones in the United States appeared to have fallen through, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. Huawei has denied these allegations for years now, but it looks like AT&T was unwilling to take the risk. The move could have helped Huawei increase its market share in the U.S.
