HUAWEI also doubled up the Wireless Reverse Charge from standard 5W to 10W. As for the wired fast charge, the company still keeping the 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge and also made it available on the standard Mate30.

The Mate30-series received a revamped design by having a more bold camera bump, an Oreo shape that houses quad-camera setup on the Mate30 Pro and Mate30 RS.

The notch is haunted back with a more narrow notch that kept four sensors including a 3D depth camera, 24MP/32MP selfie camera, ambient light and proximity.

Back to the GMS uncertainty, the ongoing trade war between the US and China forced the company to use AOSP without Google Mobile Services. That means no Google service available natively including Google Play Store, YouTube, Maps, Gmail and all related Google Services app. Despite, sideloading is common but this is a totally different case as the all-new phones from HUAWEI or even HONOR are not getting GMSCore in the bootloader. Meaning even if you able to install YouTube or Maps, it will not runs as it will recognized the device is not Google compatible.

Thus Mr. Richard Yu, said that they can only use HUAWEI Mobile Services (HMS) and they are spending US$ 1 billion to fund the development of its own HMS to workaround the missing GMSCore.

Although the company is still releasing the Mate30-series and also have the prices for the Europe countries. Looks like the company is yet to give up and may have positive news soon for the Mate30-series.

The HUAWEI Mate30 and Mate30 Pro come in various colour variants and materials; Emerald Green, Space Silver, Cosmic Purple, Black whereas Forest Green and Orange are available in vegan leather.

Price wise;

  • HUAWEI Mate30 (4G) 8GB + 128GB – EUR 799 (~MYR 3,690)
