Huawei postpones plans to launch new laptop due to United States ban

This new model will bring new features and may even be the first of a new series.

Richard Yu, the consumer division CEO, confirmed to CNBC that the laptop would not be released, calling it "unfortunate".

Although Huawei is traditionally focused on selling telecom equipment, the company ventured into consumer electronics in 2018, offering a range of smartphones, tablets and wearable devices.

Huawei hasn't obviously commented on this report, but the lack of a laptop unveiling at CES this week should pretty much be living proof that the U.S. ban just made its first major victim.

Huawei was a clear target of the order.

Whatever the reason for the USA animus toward Huawei, landing on the Commerce Department's Entity List has placed the company in a tricky position.

Both of these firm are American, and are effectively barred from doing business with Huawei. That expires on August 19.

He said that being on the US Entity List had caused the cancellation. The global debut of the OS on new models is due in 2020, people familiar with the matter said.

Specifically, Huawei is accused of having committed bank fraud to evade Iran sanctions, and obstruction of justice, among other violations. US intelligence agencies have been issuing warnings (though with little publicly released evidence) that it was secretly funded by, and its telecom gear could be bugged by Chinese security and intelligence services. The US argues that the Chinese government could use Huawei to spy on the US, but Huawei has denied those accusations and called on the US to provide evidence.

Panelo joins Lorenzana in calling for an investigation and sanction against the Chinese crewmen for their actions. Meanwhile, China rejects the arbitral ruling and continues to claim virtually the entire South China Sea.

It is also suing the USA government, claiming it has been unfairly singled out by the feds for special treatment.

The ongoing dispute between Huawei and the Trump administration has claimed a victim.

Huawei purchases about $29 billion in semiconductors each year, according to Evercore estimates cited by CNBC, much of it from American firms.

Intel is also remaining quiet on the matter, though reports claim it recently joined ARM in barring Huawei from using its hardware. Qualcomm and Broadcom, major chip supplies, have done the same.

Intel was among the tech companies that reportedly suspended business with Huawei shortly after the company was added to a usa trade blacklist in mid-May.

Ars Technica also flagged a piece in the Chinese state-run Global Times newspaper, which disputed the news of the MateBook delay.

Hours after CNBC reported that Huawei had scrapped the launch of a new laptop due to USA export controls, a source familiar with the matter told the Global Times that the company will release a new laptop next month.

According to the United States ban, Huawei can continue to release updates on its existing Android and Windows devices, but it can't use these operating systems on new products.
