Huawei Mate 30 is arriving for real on September 19

Huawei Mate 30 is arriving for real on September 19”

A Google spokesman said that the Mate 30 can not be sold with licensed Google apps and services due to the United States ban on sales to Huawei. The invite is pretty simple, but it confirms one of the biggest leaks about the new Mate 30.

In the announcement which was made through its social network channels and official website, the Huawei Mate 30 series will be officially launched on 19 September.

"For smartphone operating systems, the open Android operating system and the ecosystem around it are still our first choice".

There should also be a Mate 30 Lite as well, although we may see that at IFA rather than at the later launch.

Although the OS is expected to be Android Pie or Android 10, we are up for a surprise, since Huawei already introduced Harmony OS as a back-up variant of Googles platform if the talks between the USA and China dont yield a productive result.

Those who were hoping that Huawei would instead opt for its own proprietary HarmonyOS will be disappointed to learn that the option is not even on the table.

The event comes despite suggestions from Google last week that under current U.S. trade restrictions on Huawei, the Chinese company can not be sold with Google-licensed apps such as Google Maps or Gmail.

The Huawei Mate 30, which is expected to be powered by the upcoming Kirin 990, will definitely be a hard sell without the Google services. The tagline for the upcoming launch in mid-September is "Rethink Possibilities".

Would you buy the Huawei Mate 30 if it wasn't running Google Play Services?
