Huawei has finally made the decision to enter the US market according to Reuters. The company has never officially launched smartphones in the United States, but that is now going to change. The news comes after Huawei's MWC even where CEO Richard Yu was in controversial form and had plenty to say about which companies he sees as Huawei's main rivals.A slew of Chinese upstarts such as OnePlus, Oppo, Meizu, and of course Xiaomi have meant Huawei's usually dominant space in its own market is far from secure. However, Yu sees these companies as a passing fad and claimed, "Most Chinese smartphone vendors will disappear in the next three to five year, and we'll be the leading ones... In the future, our main competition will be from Western companies, not Chinese companies." Just why he thinks that is unclear, but either way, if Western companies will be Huawei's main rivals it makes sense for the company to start launching devices in the biggest Western market, the United States.
