Huawei scraps new laptop launch due to United States ban

This new model will bring new features and may even be the first of a new series. According to CNBC, Huawei consumer division CEO Richard Yu confirmed that due to being placed on the U.S. Yu said the situation was unfortunate and said that the new product would have been revealed this week but without a release date.

Although Huawei is traditionally focused on selling telecom equipment, the company ventured into consumer electronics in 2018, offering a range of smartphones, tablets and wearable devices.
