At IFA 2019, the CEO of Huawei – Richard Yu – said the company is working on a solution to bring Google apps to the Mate 30 series after launch.
Mate 30 and the Google app: solutions
Due to the trade ban on United States against Huawei, the next Mate 30 series phones will arrive without the Google apps: basically, Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will not have Play Store and important big G apps like Gmail, YouTube and Maps. Fortunately Richard Yu, the CEO of the Chinese company, said that Huawei is investigating possibilities to still allow users to install the Mountain View giant apps. The CEO also stated that the process of installing Google apps on the Mate 30 series would be "quite simple" thanks to nature open source of the green robot's operating system. Also, as told by Yu, third-party developers are also working to bring Google apps to the owners of the Mate 30 series.
It is worth mentioning that Meizu allows users to install Google services through their app store and Huawei could work on a similar solution for its new terminal category and upcoming mobile devices. It could be an interesting tactic to bring big G apps to Huawei devices, but the sideload could cause problems with safety, like all solutions to download apps that are offered as alternatives to the Google market.
Yu also stated that the company aimed to reach 300 million units shipped in 2019, if the US trade ban had not been imposed.
The Mate 30 series will become official on September 19th and China will be the first to see it on the shelves. We recall that the Chinese company could release an edition of the Mate 30 covered in skin.
