It was reported several weeks ago that Huawei wants to take a crack at the U.S. smartphone market by teaming up with local carriers. Having a carrier partner in the country will provide Huawei handsets with increased visibility and will enable the company to expand its user base in the country. Huawei recently confirmed that it will indeed be teaming up with U.S. carriers to launch handsets. A new report claims that the Huawei Mate 10 will be the first handset to arrive in the U.S. and that AT&T will launch it in February 2018.
The president of Huawei’s consumer business Richard Yu did confirm last week that the company will launch the Mate 10 first in the country but he didn’t say which carrier will be offering it.
The Information reports today that the Huawei Mate 10 is going to be launched with AT&T in February 2018. Pricing information hasn’t be revealed as yet so it’s unclear how much the carrier is going to charge for it.
There’s also the expectation that Huawei might make some changes to its EMUI Android skin before the Mate 10 makes its way to the United States officially. The company hasn’t confirmed that officially at this point in time so take this information with a grain of salt for now.
