Huawei’s stops working on Huawei MateBook X Pro

According to recent reports, Huawei is no longer working on new Windows 10 laptop models. The news does not end here, as the company is also planning to completely close its PC business if its revenues continue to fall.

Huawei instructed its suppliers to suspend the distribution of its notebook. The tech giant also stopped working on some existing projects that were in the development phases.

A major set back to Huawei

The MateBook laptop series features a unique design and that is why it managed to gain huge popularity among users. If Huawei decides to go ahead with this plan, it would be the first major achievement for Huawei’s opponents.

Huawei still has the option to sell the MateBook series to another big name in the industry. Many big names have all the resources required to sell these devices.

This news is not surprising taking into account the US-imposed ban on Huawei last month. Many US-based companies stopped working with Huawei.

Many big companies, including Google and Intel followed this line.

New OS coming soon

That is why Huawei can no longer purchase Windows licenses. Intel also stopped shipping chip supplies to the Chinese company. Therefore, it is not possible for Huawei to survive the PC business without both.

Huawei is not giving up and is planning to fight against the ban. The company is trying to cope up with this situation by testing a new operating system.

The upcoming OS will be used to replace Android and Windows. Huawei has not announced an official release date yet.

The future of the Matebook laptop series looks blank in both cases. Maybe an official word from Huawei can clear things up a bit.
