Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal said that one area of investigation is the technology behind a device that T-Mobile US Inc used for testing smartphones. Reuters could not immediately confirm the report.
The investigation arose out of civil lawsuits against Huawei, the Journal said, including one in Seattle where Huawei was found liable for misappropriating robotic technology from T-Mobile.
According to T-Mobile's lawsuit, Huawei employees photographed the robot and attempted to remove one of its parts.
