Huawei wins patent lawsuit against Samsung in China

Huawei wins patent lawsuit against Samsung in China

Huawei being the third largest smartphones' manufacturer has been a tough rival of South Korean giant Samsung in various emerging markets around the world. But a number of politicians reject the deal and question online security in the United States. This is what happened when AT&T walked away from a deal with Huawei to sell the latter's flagship Mate 10 device.

Huawei faced a similar issue in 2012 when the USA lawmakers claimed there were long-term security risks linked with the company's network equipment and services, leading it to pull out of the U.S. market. "Huawei has treated us better than anybody".

These sorts of titles are often little more than ceremonial, of course, and Gadot's involvement with the company could ultimately amount to simply appearing in ads and posting her Huawei-related experiences on social media.

Of course, the marketing's likely been in the works for a while, and from the sound of reports, the AT&T deal only recently fell through, but it's hard to shake the feelings that we've been through this before.

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei was expected to announce a deal to partner with us carrier AT&T.

The government later responded by saying that the bill isn't finalized and that it may not ban cryptocurrencies. Bithumb was raided by tax authorities, who inspected the company's documents, on Wednesday.

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. It said the business deal could make the company's smartphones more common in the USA and put the country at risk if government officials start to use them. In 2012, a House Intelligence Committee issued a bipartisan report, saying that Huawei and ZTE - two Chinese companies subsidized by the government - had stolen intellectual property and could use their equipment to spy on Americans. The company is the dominant player in China's smartphone market, though globally it trails Samsung and Apple.

In today's world, companies must pay close attention to the security and economic interests of the host country where they operate.

"The US market is a unique challenge for Huawei, and although Huawei Mate 10 Pro will not be sold by US operators, we remain committed to this market now and in the future", says the official statement of Huawei.

Huawei smartphones are already available in the US, but only through some electronics stores and online platforms, including its own USA website, plus Amazon.com and Best Buy.
