Huawei confirms its Mate 10 Pro flagship will not be sold through carriers in the US

Well, that's a bummer, especially for consumers looking to buy a flagship on monthly plans. Although there were positive signs that Huawei might finally sign an agreement with one or more US carriers, an earlier report by Wall Street Journal claimed negotiations failed and the smartphone company will continue to sell its products through open channels.

Now Huawei confirmed the report and said the highly-anticipated Mate 10 Pro will not be sold in the United States through local carriers. Even so, the Chinese giant seems determined to fight for market share in the US and continue to sell its flagship smartphones through any means necessary.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro is supposed to hit the shelves in the US very soon, but not that the partnership with AT&T to distribute has fallen through, you'll only find it at authorized retailers and Huawei's online store.

Huawei won't get any traction unless they tie up with the carriers. Tough spot for them, Most likely AT&T must've asked for some extremely greedy deal.

Hope the Mate 10 Pro comes with no bloatware and has a financing option when ordering it.

Huawei flagship phones are way too overpriced. They think they are as big as Samsung or Apple in terms of brand.

Brand has nothing to do with it, if the hardware is worth the price then it's worth the price. Your probably one of the people that thinks a brand name actually makes you look cool.

They are as big, they're #3 in the world.

Exactly. You have to think in terms the job you want, not the one you have.

They sure offer better specs than Sammy and Apple and they are cheaper what's wrong with that?

Huawei still can't seem to catch a break with the US government. Everyone talks like the US carriers /didn't/ want to sell this phone, when it should be apparent that they're not the biggest hurdle to Huawei's intro to the US.
