Huawei handsets arrived officially in the US last August, when the Honor 8 premium smartphone made its debut via Best Buy, Amazon, and other major retailers. Now, the Chinese brand is in talks with AT&T to add a HiSilicon-powered handset to the carrier's portfolio.

Huawei smartphones are already available in the US via Amazon, NewEgg, Best Buy, and other major retailers, but they are not present in the portfolio of the local carriers yet. Its latest flagships show that Huawei is on the right path and AT&T is now allegedly in talks with the Chinese company to become the first US carrier to add a Huawei handset to its portfolio.

According to The Information, AT&T and Huawei have recently "Discussed the possibilities of selling a HiSilicon-powered Huawei phone in the US." The deal has not been confirmed yet, but the information comes from a source familiar with the situation, so it should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being.

Right now, Huawei is the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world by shipments, right behind Apple and Samsung. The company's CEO recently unveiled the plan to overtake Apple in a few years. Huawei P10 is already headed for Canada, where the Chinese giant will sell its latest flagship via Fido, Rogers, Bell, and Videotron.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
