Huawei has already gone ahead and confirmed the launch date for its next flagship smartphone lineup – Huawei Mate 30 series. This time, the company will be unveiling the series in Munich, Germany on the 19th of September 2019. The event revolves around the tagline “Rethink Possibilities”.
Considering what’s happening between Huawei and the US government, the Chinese giant does indeed have to rethink the possibilities when it comes to answering the question “What operating system will the Mate 30 run on?” Google has responded to The Verge saying that the Mate 30 won’t be allowed to ship with core Google services on board, as US companies are still banned from doing business with Huawei.
The launch of the Mate 30 series will most probably be focusing on how the company manages to work around the Google issue. Huawei has already built its own Play Store alternative (Huawei App store) and revealed its own operating system (Harmony OS). However, the Mate 30 will still face a tough challenge considering its OS doesn’t seem like a full-fledged Android replacement.
Moving on to the hardware, Huawei will most likely be packing the Mate 30 with its latest top of the line hardware. It should include the Kirin 990 processor (soon to be unveiled at IFA, Berlin), a large circular quad-camera module and a “waterfall” display with extreme curved edges.
