Huawei has been hot on the heels of Samsung and Apple in the game of becoming the top smartphone manufacturer, but the company hasn’t made great strides in the US with any of its devices. The budget honor brand is probably better known here, but according to a new report from The Information, the Chinese company is looking to expand into the US market much more aggressively next year.
Yesterday we got an early peek at Huawei’s roadmap for 2018, which revealed a stacked Q1 2018 quarter. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro will debut next year as early as February, with AT&T as a partner. Huawei’s CEO has hinted that there will be multiple carrier partners in the US, but so far AT&T is the only one that has been confirmed.
The phone is available unofficially in the US on Amazon, where the international version that debuted in mid-November in countries like France and Germany is available to those who don’t mind using the international version. These don’t come with US warranties so it’s a bit of a gamble on an expensive flagship phone, but if these rumors surrounding AT&T as the exclusive US carrier are true then we don’t have long to wait to see the device.
