Huawei had to face the terrible situation of not getting any of Google apps and services on its latest flagships, Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro that launched this Thursday at a conference in Munich.
The two little tech beasts are easily among the best smartphones of the current year, but they have the difficult mission of proving to many people that there is life after Google. Some people couldn’t believe that the US ban on Huawei is for real, but know they are left speechless.
For those who don’t know, Google isn’t allowed by the US government to do any businesses with Huawei due to spying allegations. But for now, let’s focus on the good news: we have two more high-end flagships released by Huawei, a Chinese manufacturer with an impressive C.V. when it comes to mobile devices.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro
The phone is a major upgrade for the Mate 20 Pro. It has 5G as well as 4G support, an impressive camera even for the year 2019, waterproofing, dust resistance, and other cool features. The flagship is running a modded version of Android called EMUI, but no Google apps or any possibility to install them. And as you’ve guessed, no Google apps also means no Google Play.
Huawei Mate 30
Huawei Mate 30 is the mid-range version released by the Chinese company, and it retains most of what the Pro version is capable of doing. A few differences are notable, and among them, we can mention that Mate 30 doesn’t get the waterfall display as Pro does.
How much will the impressive smartphones created by Huawei last on the European and American market, without Google apps like Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube, and others? Most people would say that Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will have success only on the Chinese market, and I’m afraid they’re right.
