Huawei scraps MateBook launch due to United States blacklist

Huawei's consumer division CEO Richard Yu officially confirmed to CNBC that the company is delaying the launch of its new laptop due to the trade sanctions imposed on them by the U.S. The trade ban does not allow Huawei to use the American products needed for laptop production such as Microsoft software or Intel processors.

Huawei will not be launching a new laptop planned for its MateBook series, as a result of USA government actions to block USA sales to the company, a Huawei executive told United States television station CNBC. Given the problems with the US ban as Huawei is on the US Entity List the company decided not even to announce the product.

Huawei has announced its decision to call off the launch of a new laptop over the USA government's decision to add the Chinese company to a trade blacklist. Whether the laptop ever sees the light of day will depend on how long Huawei remains on the blacklist.

Earlier this week, a separate report revealed that Huawei suspended the development of new laptops, once again because the company doesn't now have an alternative operating system to power them.

Huawei's blacklisting from acquiring US -made technology appears to have caused the first product casualty at the Chinese tech giant. The new U.S. trade sanctions are restricting Huawei's ability to use United States software such as Microsoft's Windows 10 and Intel processors.

Apparently, the future of Huawei PC division is also at risk, which remains too dependent on USA technologies, and Huawei will still be a pawn in the Trade War.

This refers to a list of foreign parties that the US Department of Commerce has judged to pose a potential national security or foreign policy threat. As a result of the USA ban, Huawei can not undertake business with American suppliers without special government approvals.

The recently launched Honor 20 Series, for example, and the Huawei P30 Series, are unaffected by the barrier, the company has insisted.

It might not be the last, though, as a report out of Digitimes this week claimed that Huawei could be planning to kill off its PC business completely. However the MateBook X Pro was pulled from the Microsoft Store online in mid-May.
