Best Buy Stops Selling Huawei Smartphones According to Insider

Huawei is losing a major retail partner according to a report.

Chinese tech giant Huawei has a hard time selling its smartphones in the US. Politics gets in the way, with alleged security concerns. Given that most smartphones are made in China no matter which brand there is no technical merit to this. Huawei is the third largest manufacturer in the smartphone segment.

Other countries around the world do not have these concerns with Huawei. Earlier this year AT&T dropped a Huawei smartphone release and now Best Buy is reportedly stopping to sell Huawei products. Best Buy stopped ordering Huawei's smartphones, according to a source of CNET.

Best Buy and Huawei did not confirm or deny the report. "We don't comment on specific contracts with vendors, and we make decisions to change what we sell for a variety of reasons," said a Best Buy spokeswoman.

"Best Buy a valued partner and as a policy, we do not discuss the details of our partner relationships," a Huawei spokeswoman called. Best Buy currently offers currently 15 Huawei smartphones only at bestbuy.com. The selection includes Mate SE and Mate 10 Pro.

Huawei smartphones are no carried by any carrier directly in the US. Consumers have to buy them unlocked on amazon.com or other retailers. In Germany, you get Huawei smartphones from German Telekom and other carriers, like any other major smartphone brand.
