Huawei scraps MateBook launch due to US blacklist

In this respect, the ban has effective blocked Huawei's access to technology from Microsoft (its Windows operating system) and Intel (processors).

When asked if the laptop might launch at a later date, Yu said it depends on how long Huawei remains on the entity list.

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

"We can not supply the PC", Yu said.

With Huawei's laptops packed with hardware and software from United States companies, the move doesn't come as a total surprise, especially as DigiTimes reports that Huawei has asked its laptop supply partners to suspend deliveries, and has stopped its new laptop projects. 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. "He acknowledged that, if Huawei is on the blacklist for a long time, the laptop will not be able to be launched".

The controversial U.S. ban looks set to have a substantial impact on Huawei's smartphone biz too.

Intel is also remaining quiet on the matter, though reports claim it recently joined ARM in barring Huawei from using its hardware. However, while it will launch in China in July, it may take a while before arriving in other markets. The unnamed source even revealed Huawei will release a new model next month.
