  • Huawei cancels new phone launch in Taiwan after China row
Sharjah24 – AFP: 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 Wednesday Chinese company 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 last month suspended sales of three Huawei models that listed the self-ruled, democratic island as "Taiwan, China" for timezones and contacts.
