Huawei Mate 10 Pro Wins the Best Smartphone Award of 2017

USA customers need a better choice, and as a leader in technology and innovation, Huawei is prepared to fill this need. The company has repeatedly confirmed on their US social media accounts that the new Mate smartphone would be unveiled on January 9.

The first-of-its-kind Kirin 970 processor in the built-in world of the Mate 10 Pro delivers advanced technological features - automated learning and in-depth learning - allowing the phone to learn and understand the user's behavior every day. The Mate 10 Pro as well as Huawei's other phones will only be available as unlocked devices from various online stores like Amazon and from Huawei's own online store.

Huawei already confirmed that they would be expanding into the U.S. Indeed, Huawei has been eagerly pushing the news that the Mate 10 Pro would be coming to the U.S., with more details to come at CES.

"The U.S. market presents unique challenges for Huawei, and while the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro will not be sold by U.S. carriers, we remain committed to this market now and in the future", the electronics giant said in a statement.

The company has been trying to penetrate the US market for years now and its success hinges on selling its phones through carriers.

The AT&T deal died a few weeks after members of the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees wrote to the Federal Communications Commission raising concerns about reports that Huawei had struck a deal with a major telecommunications carrier.

Huawei Consumer Business Group has won an award from the Android Authority, the largest smartphone assessment and review organization, with Huawei's Mate10 Pro winning the "Best 2017 Smartphone" award. This means that the AT&T and Huawei deal was likely still in place leading immediately into CES. The Wall Street Journal and The Verge both reported that AT&T backed out of the deal for some unknown reason. The move could have helped Huawei increase its market share in the U.S. The letter, which was seen by The Information, reportedly "cited an intelligence committee report on Huawei's alleged ties to the Communist Party as well as China's intelligence and security services".
