Gal Gadot is Huawei's secret weapon, as United States distribution plans fall through

Huawei wins patent infringement case against Samsung

Huawei is suspected of having a role in Chinese espionage.

"We win the trust of the Chinese carriers, we win the trust of the emerging markets. and also we win the trust of the global carriers, all the European and Japanese carriers", he said. The Commerce Department is also said to be investigating Huawei's dealings with sanctioned nations.

"We have been hindered by unsubstantiated, nonspecific concerns that Huawei poses a security threat", Charles Ding, a Huawei executive, said in congressional testimony the same year. Yet its blocking of deals involving Chinese companies in sectors where it has traditionally had an advantage shows its criticisms have more validity if directed at the United States market.

The dispute stems from earlier filings by the company in 2016, in both China and the USA, that deal with 20 patents pertaining to wireless communication, operating systems and UI elements.

The Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has hit a major stumbling block in its U.S. expansion plans, with its first deal with an American carrier apparently falling through because of political pressure.

At this stage, there is no need for the Trump administration to comment on the issue since the premise is that it involves a commercial negotiation between the two companies.

On July 4, 2017, Huawei brought another infringement lawsuit to the intermediate courts of Shenzhen and Quanzhou, an eastern Chinese city, requiring Samsung to pay 80m yuan (US$12m). Incidentally, AT&T was the first mobile carrier for Apple when iPhone hit the market 11 years ago. It may be hard to find another United States mobile operator to carry its products.

The Mate 10 Pro is sold for much cheaper in China, and while we understand the extra costs associated with Value-Added Tax and importation as a whole, the listed price for the device is still a tad overwhelming.

Privately-held Huawei has denied any accusations that the company is controlled by the Chinese government, and said it has cooperated with investigations from the US 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. They may even have to sacrifice some of their own corporate tenets to abide by the rules of the game.

Chinese companies are making a big statement at the world's largest consumer electronics show, CES - But there's also some controversy. Despite that, the probe led to a de facto ban on Huawei participating in any telecom projects in the US.
