Start your New Year with a Mate 10 Pro

Huawei is the largest telecommunications manufacturer in the world, its competitor ZTE following close behind. However, the Chinese company still hasn't hit major mainstream success in the United States.

Following the collapse of a deal that would have seen USA wireless carrier AT&T sell smartphones made by Chinese manufacturer Huawei, experts have raised the issue of a "trust deficit" between the two countries. It is now the third biggest player in the market, and some analysts say that it can even dislodge Apple from the No. 2 position as it steps up its overseas expansion drive.

The company, which originally set out selling phones through an invite system, has matured enough to start considering the next step in their evolution - inking a deal with USA carriers to sell their phones through them.

But the deal, which was supposed to be announced at the CES consumer trade show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, was canceled by the USA side at the last minute. Huawei is suspected of having a role in Chinese espionage.

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.

In the meantime, the court rejected other claims made by Huawei.

"Everybody knows that in the U.S. market that over 90 percent of smartphones are sold by carrier channels", Yu said. During the launch, the consumer CEO Richard Yu said the firm had the "highest standard in privacy and security" and said the carrier deals were a "big loss" for customers, who now have less choice. "For Huawei, we have passion to do more", Yu said. He was able to show that the Chinese company is confident about the quality of its products, and its ability to compete with global rivals. A group of US lawmakers had earlier written a letter to the USA telecommunications regulator expressing misgivings about a potential deal between Huawei and an unnamed carrier, the New York Times reported.

AT&T has been pressed to give up the deal after 18 US Senate and US Intelligence Committee members have signed a letter to regulators expressing concerns about Chinese companies' engagement in the US telecommunications sector. Now it looks the firm will be launching the phone without a carrier partner, although it's a well-known fact that USA customers tend to buy their phones through a carrier.

"Two years ago, you couldn't get equipment outside of the carriers", the executive said.
