GUANGZHOU -- The latest smartphone from Huawei Technologies will not hit the Taiwanese market as planned, after the mainland company drew outrage for indicating in existing phones that the island belonged to China.

The cancellation of the launch of the Mate 30 Pro may lead to downsizing of Huawei's smartphone operations in Taiwan, where its presence is already minuscule.
