The Huawei controversy: Everything you need to know

SHARE:

© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc.   The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is Huawei's answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 . It's a 6.39-inch phone packed with top tech, including three rear cameras and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. Plus, it'll wirelessly charge other phones. You read that right. The Mate 20 Pro is joined by the standard Mate 20, which looks similar but lacks some of the Pro's exciting new tricks, such as the new fingerprint scanner and two-way charging. Pricing and availability hasn't been announced at the time of writing, but we expect to hear more in the coming days.

Huawei is one of the biggest mysteries in the wireless industry right now. It's simultaneously the world's largest telecom supplier and No. 2 smartphone maker. Yet it's a pariah in several countries, including the US.

Most recently, the Chinese telecom giant ran into trouble in late January after the US Justice Department unsealed indictments that included 23 counts pertaining to the theft of intellectual property, obstruction of justice and fraud related to its alleged evasion of US sanctions against Iran.

But the core issue with Huawei has been concerns over its coziness with the Chinese government and fears that its equipment could be used to spy on other countries and companies. It's the reason why the US banned companies from using Huawei networking equipment in 2012.

Over the last few months, there has been an upswing of scrutiny on Huawei, with a number of countries banning the use of its networking equipment. That's why its smartphones are virtually invisible in the US despite its massive presence around the world.

Huawei, for its part, has long denied any wrongdoing, and continues to maintain its innocence through the recent charges.

The sheer number of headlines can be tough grapple with, so let's put what's happened over the past year in a handy timeline.
