Huawei Mate 30 Not Doomed? Users Can Just Download Google Apps

Huawei Mate 30 Not Doomed? Users Can Just Download Google Apps

Huawei has offered many exciting flagship smartphones in the past.

It's a dilemma that forces a bit of a question mark to hang over Huawei's head, because it means owners of current Android devices may not be affected, not just yet anyway, but that future models may not officially see Android apps like Gmail and the Google Play Store until the problem is resolved. Granting the new extension, the department said Huawei was engaged in activities that are "contrary to United States national security or foreign policy interests".

Despite this news, Huawei South Africa said it remains committed to continue using the Android operating system on all of its smartphones. Another 90-day extension was just granted to the corporate last week and is set to end on November 19th, but that only applies to previously launched phones.

Huawei is facing some extremely hard problems right now with being on the United States government's Entity List, which effectively bars it from doing business with USA -based companies - which includes Google and Android.


The South China Morning Post reports that the development may prompt Huawei to delay sales of the upcoming handset in western markets, because the lack of availability of Google's services would have a detrimental effect.

In June, Huawei's United Kingdom managing director, Anson Zhang, said "nothing has changed" for the Chinese company despite the ban and it would continue to provide software and security updates for Android in both the short and long-term.

Finally, the launch date of Huawei Mate 30 Series is out & the launch will take place on September 19th at the global event in Munich, Germany.

Consumers expect to have access to all the major apps they are used to - including Maps and YouTube.


With or without a resolution to its Android dilemma, it appears Huawei will be launching a new phone in September.

And losing the Play Store means Huawei will need to provide another way for customers to access other popular apps such as Facebook, Twitter and BBC News. This is done by first creating a Canvas outside the device's viewable display such that, technically, the advertisements are drawn on the device.

Huawei has said it will continue using Android for as long as the USA government allows it.

Huawei president of software engineering said the firm's new operating system has the ability to outperform Android and iOS in terms of "distribution, performance, power consumption and openness".
