China warns of USA protectionism after Huawei setback

China warns of USA protectionism after Huawei setback

But that hope was severely dashed when AT&T pulled out of the deal at the 11th hour, just when Huawei was about launching its latest Mate 10 flagships in the U.S via CES 2018. This week, Huawei announced at CES 2018 that its Mate 10 Pro Android flagship will be available in the USA on February 18 (via Windows Central).

According to The New York Times, the deal collapsed after a group of USA lawmakers voiced concerns about a potential deal between Huawei and an American firm to sell products in the states in a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

AT&T spokesman Fletcher Cook declined to comment. But a number of politicians reject the deal and question online security in the United States. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro should be a nice addition for Windows Phone users interested in moving to Android: The Mate 10 Pro comes with a 6.0-inch QHD+OLED borderless display, Huawei's Kirin 970 AI-enhanced SoC, a 4000 mAh battery with AI-powered Battery Management and many other premium features for demanding consumers.

"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", he said.

Huawei may have been dealt another blow, alongside fellow Chinese tech OEM ZTE as a report carried by TechCrunch claims that a bill has been proposed in the U.S Congress which seeks to ban all U.S agencies with contractors or service providers that use any equipment from either company for security reasons.

Huawei is the largest telecommunications manufacturer in the world, its competitor ZTE following close behind.

China warned yesterday that American protectionism was on the rise after congressional documents showed that Chinese technology giant Huawei's designs on the United States market were causing national security concerns in Washington. It was launched in Europe in October with a price tag of 799 euros ($955).

Reports suggested the appointment was a move to help Huawei penetrate the U.S. market following its failure to partner with United States telecom giant AT&T. Their reason, US lawmakers expressed concerned about potential ties between Huawei and the Chinese government.
