China's top smartphone makers are in talks with U.S. wireless carriers


Given how cheap Xiaomi and Huawei phones can be when compared to Apple, Samsung and LG, it'll be interesting to see how the market shifts after these two companies enter the us smartphone space. With this entry, especially through two of the most dominant carriers in the country, it's easy to see why the company's chiefs are so confident about becoming the best smartphone seller in the world. (APPL) in the USA after comfortably beating the iPhone maker in their home market, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. Huawei is in talks to sell a flagship line via US carriers, but the Chinese company also plans to sell the Mate 10 device through e-commerce channels, the people said. The reason is Apple and Chinese phones.

Huawei Technologies Co. and Xiaomi Corp. are believed to be in talks with US wireless operators about selling their flagship smartphones to American consumers as early as next year. Apparently, Huawei will kick off its US campaign with the launch of Mate 10 or Mate 10 Pro at the upcoming CES 2018. Talks are reportedly going well, although an agreement could still fail to materialize, the sources added.

Running back Isaiah Crowell slammed through a hole at left guard for 59 yards on the first play after the turnover on downs. Defensive tackle Brandon Williams recovered a fumble and rolled in for a TD in third quarter to put the Ravens up 24-10.

If they're able to strike deals with the USA carriers, Xiaomi and Huawei could pose a threat to Apple's leadership in the United States smartphone market.

Apple has emerged as one of the biggest victims of these changes because its phones tend to cost more. Apple saw six successive quarters of iPhone sales declines in China before the third quarter, when it had a 40 percent year-over-year increase, according to research firm Canalys. Meanwhile, despite its struggles in China, the country still represents Apple's third-largest market by sales. Though it introduced its 10th-anniversary iPhone X recently, the $1,000 device costs a lot more than most rivals. Despite its hefty price, the iPhone X seems to be off to a hot start, outpacing sales of Apple's less expensive iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
