MICROSOFT STOPS COOPERATING WITH HUAWEI AND NO LONGER GRANTS WINDOWS LICENSES TO CHINESE COMPANIES FOR NEW DEVICES.

As you know, recently the U.S. government has blacklisted Huawei companies with which American firms are not allowed to do business. Since then, Google, Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, ARM, AMD and many other manufacturers have refused to cooperate with the Chinese company. In addition, the future flagship Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been excluded from beta testing of the new operating system Android Q, and the Wi-Fi Alliance, JEDEC, SDA and PCIe organizations have cancelled Huawei membership. It has now become known that Microsoft is also suspending cooperation with Huawei. This means that Huawei will no longer be able to release devices running Windows OC.

According to local media reports, the service group at Microsoft’s Shenzhen headquarters has been revoked and orders for Huawei devices running Windows are no longer accepted. Separately, Microsoft is no longer accepting certification orders for Huawei’s MateBook Series laptops, which, along with other manufacturers’ models, are the most prominent representatives of the Windows laptop segment.

In addition, Huawei’s services integrated with Windows services have also been disrupted due to Microsoft’s withdrawal of support. In the Chinese office, Microsoft and Huawei refused to comment on this information.

Last week, Huawei said it would be ready to migrate the devices to its own Hongmeng operating system, which is designed for a variety of devices, including mobile phones, computers, tablets and TVs, this fall. But the manufacturer will only decide to do so if they continue to use Windows and Android.
