China warns of USA protectionism after Huawei setback

REUTERS  StringerThe United States Federal Communications Commission sent a letter to AT&T detailing their concerns about the Huaweie partnership

REUTERS/StringerThe United States Federal Communications Commission sent a letter to AT&T detailing their concerns about the Huaweie partnership. But that may soon change as OnePlus plans to begin talks with carriers this year. The company, in fact, was banned in 2012 from bidding for US government contracts for telecommunications equipment and networking infrastructure.

Samsung had previously filed a countersuit, also in China, accusing Huawei of infringing 4G-related patents, WIPR reported.

The Chinese electronics manufacturer is one of the leading companies in the world that is dominating the smartphone-making scene. The company continued doing this until the OnePlus 3 in 2016, when the company finally ditched the process and had enough resources to start selling unlocked devices online directly to customers. "It's a big loss for us, and also for carriers, but the bigger loss is for consumers because consumers don't have the best choice".

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

It's becoming clear that OnePlus already has a solid fanbase that just keeps on growing.

Fiat Chrysler Will Invest Over $1 Billion Into Michigan Manufacturing Facility
The Saltillo plant will eventually be retooled to build a future commercial vehicle - perhaps something van-shaped. On Wednesday, Toyota and Mazda announced they would build a $1.6-billion, 4,000-worker plant in Alabama.

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.

Huawei said it would sell the Mate 10 Pro in the United States unlocked, meaning it won't be attached to any particular carrier. Huawei is suspected of having a role in Chinese espionage. This is what happened when AT&T walked away from a deal with Huawei to sell the latter's flagship Mate 10 device. Lau didn't comment on what happened to Huawei.

But the majority of consumers pick up devices from carriers in the USA, so this can lead to less revenues for Huawei.

It has to allocate some budget to enhance its public image in the U.S., and even seek the assistance of partners like Google to promote its business. If the company plans on sticking to its release schedule from a year ago, the OnePlus 6 could arrive in June. Between products like the RM3,999 Samsung Galaxy Note8 and the RM5,149 iPhone X, the cost of owning a flagship smartphone was beginning to border on the absurd.
