But how did this news come from what Huawei insiders called nonsense?
Geng Zhiges investigation revealed that the claim that Huawei had suspended its PC business originally came from a report published on June 10 by a Taiwanese media company, DigiTimes. The media quoted the so-called upstream supply chain-related people as saying that Huawei has asked its laptop suppliers to suspend supply and has stopped all new laptop projects.
But this information has never been confirmed by other sources.
The next day, on June 11, Arjun Kharpal, a journalist based in China for CNBC News, announced that he met Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huaweis consumer business, while attending the International Consumer Electronics Exhibition (CES) in Shanghai.
In a video that did not show Yu Chengdong, the CNBC reporter said in an interview earlier that Huawei had cancelled the release of its next Matebook laptop (the reporters original words were: Canceling the aunchofitsnewlaptopartosphere of the Matebookseries), and said that the cancellation was due to the U.S. Department of Commerces inclusion of Huawei as its entity name. The effect of single is the result.
However, these statements have not been verified by Huawei or Yu Chengdong himself.
But more notably, CNBCs reporter and the medias subsequent reports [did not] mention Huaweis suspension or cancellation of personal computer (PC) business, which only talks about the next Matebook sale being shelved...
Why is it important that CNBC reports fail to mention that Huawei suspends or cancels its personal computer (PC) business?
It turned out that just yesterday StuWoo, a journalist based in China for the Wall Street Journal, wrote a report not only claiming that Huawei had cancelled the sale of new laptops, but also calling Huawei a suspension of personal computer business and saying that his news came from so-called insiders.
But on the Wall Street Journal reporters Twitter, Geng Zhige found that his claim that Huawei stopped making laptops came from the original Taiwanese media report and later CNBC reports. After all, the reporter clearly wrote on his own account: Huawei has stopped producing laptops... The news was first reported by the Electronic Times and later confirmed by CNBC reporters.
But the problem is, as Geng Zhige introduced to you before, CNBCs entire report has not confirmed or even mentioned the claim of Huawei suspends PC business claimed by Taiwans Electronic Times. CNBCs report only says Huawei has shelved Matebooks sale. So StuWoo, a journalist in the Wall Street Journal, seems to have misunderstood CNBCs report and invented or brainwashed the content that does not exist in CNBCs report. Then he rashly thinks that Huaweis suspension of PC business has been confirmed...
Therefore, in the face of our Global Times interview and yesterdays interview with Tencent news, the real insiders from HUAWEI would only say HUAWEI suspends PC business or cancels PC product line.
As for CNBCs announcement that they learned from Yu Chengdong about Huaweis cancellation of the next Matebook series of notebooks, Huawei insiders also said that Huawei [will still sell new PC products in July], but compared with the previous name of Matebook, there is no way to name the new product which will change greatly in model and configuration. Hear.
In addition, Huawei insiders told our reporters that the new notebook product released next month will still carry Windows. This statement also directly broke the rumor that Microsoft terminated its cooperation with Huawei. China Merchants Securities Industry analyst Fang Jing also told our reporters that this shows that the new computer system is still based on the ARM architecture supporting Windows. It also shows that the impact of some US technological blockades on Huawei is far less serious than media hype.
