AT&T drops plans to carry Huawei smartphones

AT&T drops plans to carry Huawei smartphones

Failing to secure a partnership with one of the biggest mobile carriers in the U.S.is a major setback for AT&T, Bloomberg reports.

U.S. 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 was widely expected to announce a partnership with AT&T to distribute its phones in the U.S. this year, said the people with knowledge of the matter, who declined to be identified as the talks were private.

Other specifications on the device include 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage a standard, there is another model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

"We remain committed in this market now and in the future". That deal has been cancelled according to people claiming knowledge about the deal.

Huawei's plans for growth in the US led to heightened scrutiny by Congress.

"On Tuesday, Huawei will introduce new products to the US market, including availability".

The company has acknowledged that like any other Chinese firms trying to set foot in the United States, Huawei is a subject of suspicion coming from American businesses and national politicians.

AT&T has backed off of a deal to sell Huawei phones in the US. "I think that we can bring value to the carriers and to consumers".

For now, part of Huawei's plan is to reach out to US consumers using alternative channels such as online and physical retail stores.

Huawei has continually denied allegations that it spies for China. Breaking into the USA market would simply bring it closer to its lofty ambitions.
