Huawei has ditched a product launch for the first time since the US placed it on a trade blacklist.
It was reported that the Chinese tech firm had intended to unveil a new laptop as early as this week.
However, its consumer device chief Richard Yu told that it had become”unable to supply the PC”.
“[It’s] unfortunate,” he added via a WeChat message to the business news network. He added that the product itself might have to be scrapped.
“[It] depends on how long the Entity List will be there,” he wrote.
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.
Specifically, Huawei is accused of having committed bank fraud to evade Iran sanctions, and obstruction of justice, among other violations.
