Huawei is the world's third-largest smartphone brand by volume of sales, following Samsung Electronics Co. and Apple Inc.

Meanwhile, The Information claimed to have obtained a copy of a letter that was written by the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees and was sent to the Federal Communications Commission dated December 20, 2017. But a number of politicians reject the deal and question online security in the United States. The Mate 10 Pro is a quality device, and could give the Galaxy and iPhone units a serious run for their money.

This is not the first time United States politicians have stooped to mudslinging to prevent the entry of Chinese high-tech companies into the U.S. market on the pretext they pose national security threats. "For Huawei, we have passion to do more", Yu said.

Gal Gadot is being brought in as the company's new Chief Experience Officer, and while the title is likely nothing more than an honorific, it shows that Huawei knows it is facing an uphill battle against the likes of Samsung and Apple in trying to break into the USA market without the assistance of an AT&T or Verizon.

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 the deal, which was supposed to be announced at the CES consumer trade show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, was canceled by the U.S. side at the last minute.

However, it dismissed compensation claims made by Huawei and said that Samsung would be permitted an appeal. According to the reports, AT&T has decided not to carry Huawei's smartphones.

The letter notes the committee's concerns "about Chinese espionage in general, and Huawei's role in that espionage in particular".

"Two years ago, you couldn't get equipment outside of the carriers", the executive said. The company was founded more than two decades ago by a former engineer from the country's People's Liberation Army, but Huawei has denied repeatedly that it has any ties to the government.

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.

The lawsuits are the first intellectual property challenges by a Chinese company against the world's top mobile maker.
