Huawei now sells to consumers online, but the lack of carrier deals has made the company basically irrelevant in the United States market.
Today's report claims the deal was scheduled to be announced at CES 2018 in Las Vegas on Tuesday. "USA consumers need a better choice, and as a leader in technology and innovation, Huawei is prepared to fill this need", the company said in a statement provided to Reuters.
In the recent past, Huawei has only sold its handsets in the US through its own website, through Amazon.com and other online retailers, giving its phones less market exposure and making it impossible for buyers to examine the devices before making a purchase.
Huawei told CNBC in a separate statement that it will launch new products for the USA market on Tuesday.
Its Mate 10 Pro smartphone, for example, will apparently be available unlocked for customers to buy, an unnamed source told the publication.

The company has been trying to penetrate the US market for years now and its success hinges on selling its phones through carriers. A deal with AT&T would've helped Huawei get its phones in front of many new consumers.
Currently, it is trailing behind Samsung and Apple and for those that do not know, penetrating the U.S.by selling through carriers was a golden opportunity that did not seem to take form for the tech firm.
