Rumors have been brewing for some time now that Chinese phone maker Huawei will officially make its Mate 10 Pro flagship available in the United States through USA carriers.

According to the Journal, Huawei had been expected to announce Tuesday at the CES trade show in Las Vegas that it had reached an agreement with AT&T, its first partnership with a major USA mobile carrier.

Other specifications on the device include 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage a standard, there is another model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Huawei now sells to consumers online, but the lack of carrier deals has made the company basically irrelevant in the U.S. market. US customers who were looking forward to the device can get it, but not in the manner that many prefer and have grown accustomed to. That deal has been cancelled according to people claiming knowledge about the deal. The company the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the world, but concerns about Huawei's relationship to the Chinese government has mostly kept its equipment out of the US. The Wall Street Journal and The Verge both reported that AT&T backed out of the deal for some unknown reason. The move could have helped Huawei increase its market share in the U.S.

In any case, all is not lost for the company since there are other carriers that it can do business with.

Huawei has continually denied allegations that it spies for China.

Currently, it is trailing behind Samsung and Apple and for those that do not know, penetrating the selling through carriers was a golden opportunity that did not seem to take form for the tech firm.

Seemingly unmindful of the setback, Huawei made known of its resolve to have a get-go on the USA market.
