How successful will Huawei Mate 30 be?

Technology

For a long time now, we have known this day would arrive. Over the last few months, however, it seems like it has arrived very slowly. It was announced in May that Google and other businesses which trade in the US have to change their terms with Huawei. The US blacklisted the Chinese giant in the latest fight of the ongoing trade war.

In spite of it all, Huawei uncovered its latest flagship this morning. The Mate 30 Pro is one of a kind smartphone as is expected from the Chinese electronics powerhouse. It includes a quartet of cameras aligned in a ring up top. On the other hand, a 6.53-inch flexible OLED embraces the corners of the handset, featuring an always-on functionality – the new feature which served as the main selling point for Apple’s latest wearable.

However, from a 100-foot view, certainly no one will remember the smartphone for its cameras or screen or 4,500mAh battery. The most notable is what’s missing. The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro don’t integrate full Android but an open-source version of the operating system.

What’s more important is they don’t have Google’s fundamental apps such as Gmail, Maps and Chrome, a major part of the Android experience. Even worse, you won’t find Google Play Store from where they can be downloaded.

For now, the solutions are mostly stop-gap. You will find a Huawei-branded browser which lets you download apps through a Huawei-branded channel. There are around 45,000 which isn’t bad but very less compared to the 2.7 million you’ll find via Google Play. Better solutions will come but a lot of time and money are needed. We just have to wait and see what the future holds for the Mate 30 Pro.
