Huawei's next flagship could be heading to AT&T during the first half of 2018
According to a report that was published earlier today, AT&T has agreed to carry Huawei's next flagship phone starting in the first half of 2018. Doing this is a must for Huawei if it wants to fulfill a promise it made last year to top Samsung and Apple and become the top smartphone manufacturer in the world by 2021. To achieve that goal, Huawei is going to have to cultivate a strong relationship with one of the stateside carriers, which in this case appears to be AT&T.

The flagship rumored to be heading to AT&T is the Huawei Mate 10. As we told you earlier today, this device will feature the 2:1 aspect ratio found on Samsung's Infinity Display and LG's FullVision design. Huawei has its own catchy title for it, the EntireView Display. The Mate 10 will certainly be classified as a high-end model with a 6-inch screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution display, powered by a Kirin chipset made using the 10nm process.

With the latest smartphone market share report showing a smaller than three million gap between number three Huawei and number two Apple, a strong showing by the Mate 10 could allow Huawei to sidle right up behind Samsung next year at this time. However, Apple does have the tenth anniversary iPhone 8 model expected to rile up the market starting as soon as next month. That means that Huawei might have to push back its plans for world domination by a year or two no matter how superb the Huawei Mate 10 turns out to be.
