What you need to know
- A new Huawei laptop has been postponed due to U.S. trade restrictions.
- The laptop would have been in the Matebook line.
- This is the first known Huawei product launch postponed as a result of the U.S.-China trade dispute.
Huawei would have launched an new Matebook laptop this week, but the unveiling has been postponed indefinitely due to Huawei being on the restrictive U.S. "Entity List." The laptop would have been unveiled at the CES Asia show this week in Shanghai, but the launch has now been indefinitely postponed according to The Verge.
Huawei's CEO of consumer divisions, Richard Yu, told CNBC that the situation was "unfortunate." Yu also stated that US trade restrictions on Huawei are the reason for the postponement. Companies on this list cannot be sold products from American companies — like Microsoft and Intel.
Huawei's laptops are one of the only commercially successful products from Huawei that are sold in the United States. But these devices rely on U.S. technology including the Windows 10 operating system and Intel processors.
Any future plans would require a change regarding the U.S. Entity list. Yu admitted that the laptop might not be launched if Huawei remains blacklisted.

Review: HP's Spectre x360 15 is gorgeous, but battery life disappoints
