Huawei Mate 30 can't Launch with Google Apps | The Global Launch of this Flagship likely to be Delayed
The nightmare for Huawei continues to hunt them since the US ban. The ban has already done huge damage to the company in its sales in the European market. The ban was lifted and granted a temporary license but that was applicable only to existing devices. Now, Huawei’s upcoming flagship phone Mate 30 Series is just a few weeks away from global launch(Likely to be held on September 19) and Google confirmed that Huawei Mate 30 Series can’t be launched with Official Google Applications.
Yes, Huawei can use Android which is freely available at its core open-source software but they are not allowed to launch the devices with Google apps onboard, Google confirmed to The Verge. Google apps include Youtube, Gmail, and more importantly, Play Store. Though this can’t be a problem for users in China as they are used to Android phones with google services but it would be huge blow for Huawei to survive without Google Apps around the world.
Following the news from Google, the Global launch of Huawei Mate 30 Series likely to get delay, reports South China Morning Post. Huawei has already announced its own operating system for mobiles as HarmonyOS and already embedded them in Honor Vision TV, but to install HarmonyOS on Mate 30 Series could be very risky. Also, during HDC 2019, the company said no plans to use HarmonyOS in smartphones soon.
The road ahead for Huawei seems horrible. As this phone has to compete with Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, upcoming iPhone 11, it would be hard to survive in the market without Google Applications. Let’s see how they tackle and emerge out as Warrior.
