LONDON (Reuters) - Vodafone UK said on Wednesday it had dropped a Huawei 5G smartphone from pre-orders for its new service starting in July, because of uncertainty about long-term support and services for the device.

"We are pausing pre-orders for the Huawei Mate 20X (5G) in the UK," a spokesman said. "This is a temporary measure while uncertainty exists regarding new Huawei 5G devices. We will keep this situation under review."
