Huawei pleads not guilty to stealing U.S. trade secrets

The Chinese tech giant Huawei pleaded not guilty to U.S. trade-theft charges in a case that has heightened a trade dispute between the world's two largest economies. Huawei used that information to improve its own robot.

The U.S. has been urging allies to ban Huawei as charges of espionage activities, trade secret theft and other allegations surface. Huawei could face fines of more than $5 million Dollars (roughly $6.5 million CAD).

Reuters reported on February 28th that the companies were "arraigned" and that a trial has been set for March 2nd, 2020. However, these efforts haven't hurt Huawei globally, as the smartphone maker passed Apple in market share for the first time a year ago and saw phone shipments increase 30 percent in 2018.

The US has accused China of using predatory tactics to turn Chinese companies into leaders in tech fields such as robotics and electric vehicles.

The P20 Pro upgrade that Huawei probably doesn't want you to see
The design approach for the back of the device remains unchanged as it tries to imitate the appearance of a point of shoot camera. Moreover, the upcoming handset P30 Pro will feature a teardrop design at the top and will have a triple camera setup at the rear.

Huawei pleaded not guilty to charges of stealing trade secrets from T-Mobile in the first hearing of a federal case that comes amid a USA crackdown on the Chinese smartphone giant.

In federal court in Seattle, Huawei - one of the world's biggest wireless equipment makers - said it was not guilty of committing trade secret theft, nor of conspiring to hide such a plan. According to prosecutors, Huawei stole trade secrets from T-Mobile. In 2017, a Seattle jury ruled in favor of T-Mobile in a related suit against Huawei and awarded the telecommunications company $4.8 million.

Huawei, the No 2 smartphone maker and an essential player in global communications networks, has also been charged in NY with lying to banks about deals that violated economic sanctions against Iran.
