  • Intel and Qualcomm’s export licenses to HUAWEI have reportedly been revoked by the US government.
  • This could seriously affect the company’s PC business, with the firm offering laptops since 2016.

The US trade ban against HUAWEI has hurt the Chinese manufacturer in several ways, but it’s the company’s smartphone division that’s suffered the most. However, it looks like the US government is now taking aim at HUAWEI’s PC business.

Reuters reports that the US has revoked Intel and Qualcomm’s export licenses to sell to HUAWEI, citing three sources familiar with the issue. A fourth source told the newswire that the license revocation was effective immediately. The Department of Commerce reportedly confirmed that it revoked several export licenses to HUAWEI but didn’t reveal more details.
