In May, the Smartphone has landed on the Department of Commerce Entity List, which is to prevent the Chinese firm from purchasing the parts and technology from U.S. companies that do not have the Commerce Department’s prior approval.

The US claims that Huawei is “a significant risk of being involved in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States of america.”

Huawei does not agree with the action. “This decision…will have significant economic consequences for American companies, Huawei does business with, have an impact on tens of thousands of American jobs, as well as interfere with the current co-operation and mutual trust in the global supply chain,” Huawei, told Fox News in a written statement.


The company, which is the second-largest smartphone maker in the world, it is also a major laptop vendor. It makes all of the models, such as the MateBook X-Pro, which has received high praise from reviewers in the united states That the laptop is being sold online by the Microsoft Store, among other places, but with the launch of the Huawei ascend MateBook 13 it has recently been cancelled as a result of the U.S. ban, according to the report.

So, you will need to buy a Smartphone a laptop?

The answer to this question has two parts. The first is practical – there is a limited availability of the Huawei mobile in the US as a result of the ban. The MateBook X-Pro is still available online at the Microsoft Store, and Huawei, told Fox News that they are going to continue with the provision of after-sales service on all of the latest Huawei and Honor brand of pcs that are currently available on the market.

“Our customers can rest assured that they will continue to receive support for their existing and newly purchased appliances,” a Huawei spokesman said.

Microsoft and Intel, also told Fox News that they are going to continue with the support of Huawei’s products, in spite of being effectively banned by the U.S. government.

In the second part of the answer, it is a matter of safety and security. In short, Smartphone spy, or engaging in any activity that is contrary to the national security of the united states?

“Well, I don’t buy it, because you don’t know what it is,” James Lewis, a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Fox News. “It’s just a matter of confidence, the Chinese government has forced the manufacturers to install some form of surveillance technology.”

At the individual level, it probably won’t be much of a risk for Lewis will be added. “If you don’t mind the risk that the Chinese government may be listening in, and for most people, there is almost no risk, and then you can make use of it.”

Klon Kitchen is a senior research fellow in the science, technology and national security at the Heritage Foundation, said that there was no way that he would have to make use of a Smartphone device.

“Well, I don’t use it on a Smartphone device of any sort,” he said. “The company is clearly willing to give their customers the products and services, but also an extension of chinese Intelligence, military and foreign policies of the enterprise.”

“Huawei has been in the tech espionage is a business; plain and simple. No one should rely on them,” Kitchens added.
