Huawei beats Samsung in lawsuit over wireless patent

The Mate 10 Pro will be sold unlocked on online outlets like Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, Microsoft, and B&H. Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, delivered a keynote Tuesday afternoon and unveiled its new smartphone, the Mate 10, and a luxury smartphone made in collaboration with Porsche Design.

Dallas-based AT&T has not commented on "rumors" reported over the past year regarding any potential alignment with Huawei, according to a spokesperson for the carrier.

CES 2018 was supposed to be the event that marked the entry of the world's third-largest smartphone maker into the USA market, but at the last minute, AT&T backed out of the agreement and left the Chinese brand all on its own to fend for itself in the local mobile scene, which is hard to penetrate without any form of carrier support. It may be hard to find another USA mobile operator to carry its products.

What's a poor smartphone maker to do when its latest grand plans for US distribution fall through?

Huawei's grand US distribution plans have hit a slight snag - as a deal with the country's largest wireless carrier AT&T has reportedly fallen through at the very last minute. Of these, a Shenzhen judge this week found the South Korean tech firm to be guilty of infringing on precisely one wireless communication patent, and has asked the company to stop the distribution of all devices that use the technology in question.

Shortly before Huawei was expected to announce its partnership with AT&T at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, reports said the carrier suddenly exited the deal. However, its smartphones are not as widely available in the United States compared to rivals Samsung and Apple, and this was mainly because it was never sold through US telecommunications carriers.

This isn't the first time USA politicians have suspected Huawei of being a security threat, though they have never offered proof in public.

USA officials are also investigating whether the company violated American trade sanctions in countries including Iran and Syria.

"We are a company that is very simple, very transparent, open".

Right now, Huawei can not do much after the collapse of the AT&T deal except to keep a low profile.

Privately-held Huawei has denied any accusations that the company is controlled by the Chinese government, and said it has cooperated with investigations from the US government.

AT&T was pressured to drop the deal after members of the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees sent a letter on December 20 to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) citing concerns about Huawei's plans to launch consumer products through a major U.S. telecom carrier.
