Huawei is busy preparing to introduce the new top model Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The whole performance will be closely watched by all interested parties and fans or competitors of the company. Why? Only recently we learned that Mate 30 Pro will not offer applications from Google.
The Chinese firm has been fighting a US President Donald Trump order since May to ban US companies from licensing or trading with Huawei. One of the companies that must comply with this regulation is and Google. Google businesses grants licensesthat put manufacturers into their devices can install Google apps and services. Unfortunately, Huawei such a has not yet obtained a license for the Mate 30 Pro and it looks like he won't even get into the show.
So Huawei has 2 options. He can deploy his own Harmony OS, which is a kind of Android without Google services or open source Android 10 (AOSP), too without Google apps. Given that Harmony OS would be a big commitment for the company, the Chinese company remained the only option to use Android 10. However, it still has some comments for Google.
Huawei boss: Give us Android, otherwise we're moving to Harmony OS
During IFA 2019, where Huawei introduced the new Kirin 990 chipset, new Huawei FreeBuds 3 headphones and new colors for the P30 Pro, several selected editors could testify to the company's top executives. Although TECHBYTE had the opportunity to talk to Benjamin Wang, responsible for the Kirin 990 chipset, for which we thank Huawei, it was much more interesting to talk to the Chief Product Officer Richard Yu.
The Google referred to the following: "So far, Huawei has had a very good and close relationship with Google. But if it does not change its attitude, which goes hand in hand with the rhetoric of the United States, we will have no choice but to switch to our own ecosystem with Harmony OS Mobile Services, which we are constantly working on. And yes, Harmony OS is really ready for use in mobile phones".
In his speech, Richard Yu also touched on the upcoming Mate 30 Pro, which will be introduced September 19 in Munich. "Our Harmony OS is also ready for use on smartphones, but we decided not to deploy it yet,"He repeated. "However, if the US government prevents us from accessing a full-featured Android, we will deploy our own Harmony OS,"Which means that if the same situation persists, the first device with the Harmony OS could indeed be the P40 Pro.
