Business Day: Huawei cancels launch in Taiwan over ‘part of China’ description

Taipei — Tech giant Huawei has cancelled the launch of a flagship phone and watch in Taiwan after Taipei imposed a temporary ban on some of its products for listing the island as part of China.

On its official Taiwan Facebook page on Wednesday, Chinese tech giant Huawei said the launch of its Mate 30 Pro smartphone and its GT 2 digital watch had been cancelled due to “supply issues” without elaborating further.

“We thank all users who participated in the pre-order event of the products … and express deep regret for causing you inconvenience,” the statement said, adding that users would be refunded.

The cancellations came after Taiwan, in November, suspended sales of three Huawei models that listed the self-ruled, democratic island as “Taiwan, China” for time zones and contacts.

On Thursday, Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC) said the temporary ban of Huawei’s P30, P30 Pro and Nova 5T models is still effective as the company had yet to change the wording.
