Microsoft continues to provide updated support for Huawei-branded notebooks

2 min read

Previously affected by the US Department of Commerce ban, Microsoft and Google have suspended cooperation with Huawei, that is, no longer authorized Windows 10 and Android systems to Huawei. However, Microsoft is relatively cautious about this matter and is therefore reluctant to disclose the information. Huawei notebooks were removed from the official Microsoft Store. Over time, the Microsoft legal team is continuing to evaluate, and the evaluation is now realigned with Huawei to comply with US legal requirements.

Earlier, Microsoft removed Huawei notebooks from the company’s official store. At the time, Microsoft did not give any official announcements and of course did not explain. Earlier this month, Microsoft reloaded Huawei’s laptops. For reasons, Microsoft explained that there is no violation of the continued sale of Huawei’s inventory products. For Microsoft, the equipment that has been purchased before can continue to be sold, but it is no longer possible to continue to purchase and sell equipment to Huawei after the ban is issued. Those inventory equipment were purchased before the ban, so the Microsoft legal team evaluated it and said it could be sold, so Microsoft only restored these devices.

Microsoft released another official statement, which was related to the Huawei laptop running Windows 10.

“We remain committed to providing exceptional customer experiences. Our initial evaluation of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s decision on Huawei has indicated we may continue to offer Microsoft software updates to customers with Huawei devices.”

Therefore, users who use Huawei laptops can continue to receive features and security updates. If Huawei continues to introduce new laptop products, it will not be able to pre-install Windows 10, but use the general-purpose operating system developed by Huawei itself.
