First, let’s start with the packaging. The box of the Huawei P40 Pro has apparently surfaced in China. Now that the company already has a firm standing when it comes to photography, is Huawei now focusing on expanding their app ecosystem with AppGallery?
Usually, on their packaging we’d see their Leica collaboration details on the bottom front of the smartphone’s box. However, this time they’ve moved the Leica branding towards the middle and replace the bottom section with the AppGallery logo.
Being hit with the “No Google” card, Huawei is taking matters into their own hands by building their own app store called the “AppGallery”. The company is diligently getting app developers to bring in their apps to Huawei’s app store. For now, your favourite apps might already be available for download. That being said, even if it is not on AppGallery, Huawei is working on it to bring it in.
