Huawei Mate 30 to Launch Without Android, Google Apps and Services
Huawei is about to suffer the first major blow after being blacklisted by the United States government back in May, as the company’s upcoming flagship, the Mate 30 series, can’t use Android and Google apps and services.
The Chinese tech giant confirmed for Reuters that the launch of the device would still happen even without Google’s software.
People familiar with the matter told the same source that the unveiling could take place on September 18 in Munich, but specifics on when the Mate 30 could hit the shelves aren’t available for now.
While Google says that Huawei can’t use Android or its apps, the Chinese tech firm says it’s ready to switch the full focus to its very own Android replacement.
