But if you want it in the U.S., you're out of luck — until now.Credit: Tom's GuideCredit: Tom's GuideIf you head over to eBay today, you'll find the opportunity to buy Huawei's new flagship on the site. The smartphone is sold factory unlocked and comes with the option to be shipped worldwide, including in the U.S. You can buy it for $899.

Due in large part to Huawei's continued row with the U.S. government, the company's handsets are not sold through traditional channels, like at carrier stores or big-box retailers. Instead, the handset is sold internationally to customers. Those in the U.S. who have wanted to get their hands on Huawei smartphones have been forced to find international retailers that would ship the phones to America.

The Mate 20 Pro, however, is being sold out of Houston. And since it's factory unlocked, you can simply buy it, pop in your SIM card, and start using it on a GSM network (like AT&T and T-Mobile) without much fuss.
