According to The Wall Street Journal, federal prosecutors are already in hot pursuit of a criminal investigation into the company for allegedly stealing USA trade secrets.

Huawei said in a statement the company and T-Mobile settled their disputes in 2017 following a USA jury verdict that found "neither damage, unjust enrichment nor willful and malicious conduct by Huawei in T-Mobile's trade secret claim". Huawei's spy even managed to sneak off with some parts of the robot. One employee also tried to hide the fingerlike tip of "Tappy" behind a computer monitor so that it would be out of view of a security camera, and then tried to sneak it out of the lab in his laptop-computer bag, according to the lawsuit.
