Huawei postpone plans to launch new laptop because of USA ban

Huawei scraps Mate Book launch due to US blacklist

Huawei's Mate Book X Pro might not be getting a sequel

According to CNBC, a U.S. television network, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's Consumer division, said that the company had planned to launch a new product in its Matebook series without giving a date, but it had been put on hold.

The US has banned sales of technology to Huawei, which uses Intel chips and the Windows operating system in its MateBook PCs.

Huawei was planning to announce a new MateBook laptop this week, but an executive confirmed that the company cancelled the launch because of U.S. sanctions against the Chinese company.

Speaking to CNBC, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer division, confirmed the report.

Chinese tech giant Huawei, one of the world's leading electronics manufacturers, intends to revise its plans for the development and production of laptops. He noted that, if Huawei remains on the blacklist for the foreseeable, the laptop will not be able to be launched. "We can not supply the PC", he said, calling the situation "unfortunate".

The controversial USA ban looks set to have a substantial impact on Huawei's smartphone biz too. A new report says there is no truth to the matter.

The Global Times-which is part of China's state-run media-published a story disputing some of the reporting about the laptop launch.
