China warns of U.S. protectionism after Huawei setback

Huawei Super Bowl 2018 Ad to Star Gal Gadot

Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's [HWT.UL] planned deal with US carrier AT&T Inc (T.N) to sell its smartphones in the United States has collapsed at the 11th hour because of security concerns, people with knowledge of the matter said, in a blow to the Chinese firm's global ambitions. 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.

Huawei has battled accusations that it poses a United States national security threat for several years, while Chinese company ZTE has also come under fire for its worldwide practices. A copy of the letter was seen by Reuters.

"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", it said.

TechCrunch contacted ZTE and Huawei for comment but we had not heard back from either company at the time of writing.

It looks that more and more Android phones could become available to purchase at the US Microsoft Store this year.

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has won a patent victory over its South Korean rival Samsung.

It was the highest profile Chinese deal to be rejected by Washington since Donald Trump came to power.

AT&T has decided not to carry phones by Chinese smartphone maker Huaawei after concerns about security.

Huawei, the world's biggest maker of network gear used by phone companies, suffered a setback in the USA market when a congressional report in October 2013 said it was a security risk and warned telecom carriers not to use its equipment. It was launched in Europe in October with a price tag of 799 euros ($955).

In May 2016, Huawei filed two lawsuits against Samsung in China and the United States for an allegedly unlicensed use of its 4G cellular communications technology, operating systems, and user interface software.

Conaway's bill cites all the money quotes from past government reports, including the 2011 Congressional investigation that led to the 2012 bill, a U.S. China Commission that found ZTE, Huawei and others are "directly subject to direction by the Chinese Communist Party", and comments from former Central Intelligence Agency head General Michael Hayden who claimed Huawei had '"shared with the Chinese state intimate and extensive knowledge of foreign telecommunications systems it is involved with".
