Yet it is a pariah in several countries, including the United States, to the point that the FBI reported having created a sting at CES 2019.

The Chinese telecommunications giant may have encountered its biggest problem in 2019. At the end of January it saw the United States Department of Justice unsealed charges that included 23 counts concerning the alleged theft of intellectual property, obstruction of justice and fraud related to his alleged evasion of US sanctions against Iran.
