Verizon's plan to sell Huawei phone suffocated by political pressure

Verizon's plan to sell Huawei phone suffocated by political pressure

Bloomberg reports that Verizon has dropped plans to sell Huawei phones in the US.

AT&T also dropped its deal with Huawei to offer the Mate 10 Pro due to political pressure in January 8. Huawei is one of the best-selling brands in the world, and yet it still hasn't made a sizable impact in this region.

VERIZON HAS REPORTEDLY followed in the footsteps of AT&T by cancelling plans to offer Huawei smartphones in the U.S. amid government fears of "Chinese espionage".

In the recent past, Huawei has only sold its handsets in the USA through its own website, Amazon.com and other online retailers, giving its phones less market exposure and making it impossible for buyers to examine the devices before making a purchase. It's also the most prominent Chinese smartphone maker.

This concern goes further than phones; the government is allegedly concerned about letting Chinese companies such as Huawei and ZTE take the lead in the area of 5G networks.

When the Huawei Mate 10 Pro announced in the U.S., one of the major leading networking providers AT&T announced that they would not be selling the smartphone in the US.

For its part, Huawei has publicly decried such comments and has said under no uncertain terms that it's not working with the Chinese government.

The US has always been suspicious of Huawei, despite Yu's arguments that Huawei has "proven our quality. proven our privacy and security protection". But the news comes as the Trump administration is considering a preliminary proposal to build a nationalized 5G network as a way to thwart Chinese spying. He said that American consumers were the ones who missed out when the deal between Huawei and AT&T fell through. While Huawei sells unlocked phones that can still work on Verizon and AT&T networks, having its phones sold by a major USA carrier would have allowed it to reach more consumers than before and raise its reputation in the US. But many had to refuse due to the pressure from the USA government.
