The temporary ban, which extends to five telecom companies in Taiwan that sell the P30, P30 Pro and Nova 5T phones, may become permanent if the issue is not resolved, the NCC said Thursday.

Following the upgrade of the software on the three phone models, the time zone and contact apps now list Taiwan as "Taiwan, China," the NCC said.
