2018 was supposed to be Huawei’s year where they were supposed to partner up with various US carriers to officially launch their phones in the US market. However that fell through as US lawmakers and intelligence agencies have warned against buying devices from Huawei. In fact recently it was reported that Best Buy would stop stocking up on Huawei’s phones.

However despite these obstacles and challenges, Huawei is still not giving up on the US market just yet. Speaking to CNET in an interview via email, the CEO of Huawei’s consumer business group Richard Yu said, “We are committed to the US market and to earning the trust of US consumers by staying focused on delivering world-class products and innovation. We would never compromise that trust.”

When asked about what Huawei thought about the allegations that the company’s products are being used to spy on Americans, Yu said, “The security risk concerns are based on groundless suspicions and are quite frankly unfair. We welcome an open and transparent discussion if it is based on facts.”

That being said, it seems that the US government is seriously against Huawei’s products. Before it felt more like an advice against using Huawei products, but recently a report suggested that federal subsidies for carriers might be blocked if they use Huawei equipment.
