Everyone expected it and the confirmation fell: Google told Reuters that the Mate 30 would indeed be deprived of Google’s applications and services. It remains to be seen how the brand will replace them.
According to 9TO5Android, Huawei’s next smartphone will be the first to suffer from the sanctions imposed by the Trump administration. Indeed, according to a report, the Huawei Mate 30 will not be able to be sold with a functional version of Android or any service and application published by Google. He will therefore not have the same chance as the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro who had fallen through the cracks in-extremis, receiving their Google certification just before the ban was effective.
The presentation of the Mate 30 is expected to take place on September 18, and the availability date will certainly be announced on that occasion. But if all observers will be watching this presentation, it will be mainly because it will be the first launch since the ban has been effective. Everyone is therefore wondering what solution the brand will offer users instead of Android and Google services. Note that if the operating system itself is open-source, all associated services are not and are the property of Google.
