Microsoft removed Huawei’s laptop lineup from its online store last month, following a new executive order to crack down on the Chinese tech company. While the software giant has remained silent over whether Huawei will still be able to obtain Windows licenses for its range of laptops, the devices are now starting to return to online stores this week.
Twitter user WalkingCat noticed that Huawei’s laptops have returned, and we’ve spotted that the MateBook 13, the MateBook, and the MateBook X Pro are all available once again. The MateBook X Pro is currently listed as “out of stock,” but the rest are available to purchase again.
The Verge reached out to Microsoft to comment multiple times on the removal of the Huawei laptops last month, and the company refused to issue any statement. Huawei has since postponed the launch of a new Windows-powered laptop that was due to be unveiled at the CES Asia show last week. It’s not exactly clear what new laptop Huawei was planning to announce, but it did previously unveil the MateBook 14 and updated its MateBook X Pro line at MWC earlier this year.
We’ve reached out to Microsoft to comment on the mysterious return of Huawei’s laptops to its online store, and we’ll update you if the company decides to talk this time.
