The future of the new Huawei notebook is unclear
Huawei is canceling the launch of a new Matebook laptop because of US blacklisting.
Chinese tech giant Huawei has scrapped the launch of new laptop as a result of being effectively barred from doing business with American suppliers.
It’s the first product launch the company has cancelled as a result of being put on a blacklist restricting its access to U.S. technology.
Huawei was planning to announce a new MateBook laptop this week, but an executive confirmed that the company cancelled the launch because of US sanctions against the Chinese company. It's not clear when—or whether—the laptop will be released.
The US has banned sales of technology to Huawei, which uses Intel chips and the Windows operating system in its MateBook PCs.
