Back in January, reports flooded in that both AT&T and Verizon decided to pull out of deals to carry the smartphones offered by the Chinese company. This decision was made from the pressure that the US government put on the two companies.
Recently, new reports have emerged that Best Buy has joined the ship and has ended the partnership it inked with Huawei. Seeing this was Huawei's only chance at entering the US market, this is a big blow to the company.
The report shows that Best Buy's decision could be because of the same pressure they received from the government. According to reports, the giant retail chain has stopped making new smartphone orders from Huawei. In the next few weeks, it is expected to stop selling these products altogether.
As of this writing, it is unclear whether or not the Huawei Honor line will be affected by this decision too. Right now, customers can still get their hands on a Huawei device via Amazon, Newegg, and B&H.
No comment has been made from spokespeople from either Best Buy and Huawei.
