Huawei: Mate 30 Pro comes to Germany

After a delay of several months, Huawei offers the Mate 30 Pro to Germany – without Google services and only in limited numbers.

Huawei will soon sell the Mate 30 Pro in Germany. The Chinese manufacturer’s top smartphone will be available in a limited number exclusively in the Mediamarkt online shop from December 12 – Huawei does not reveal how many copies will be sold. The Mate 30 Pro should cost 1100 euros.

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro does not have an Android license due to US sanctions. Important apps like Google Maps, Gmail, Youtube and the Play Store are missing on the device. In addition, the Mate 30 Pro has to do without the Google mobile services, which are needed to display notifications, among other things. Huawei wants to replace it with its own Huawei Mobile Services. So that these can offer a range of functions comparable to that of Google services, the developers of apps must also play along.

Because only limited Android is running on the Huawei smartphone, the market launch in Germany has long been questionable. Previously, Huawei had only occasionally sold the Mate 30 Pro in Europe. For example, some copies of the Huawei phone were offered in a shop in Madrid .

The U.S. government has blacklisted Huawei, which allows U.S. companies to work with special permission only. Android developer Google must therefore boycott Huawei. Mobile phones that were already on the market in May 2019 continue to run fully on Android.

However, Huawei no longer gets new licenses from Google. All future mobile phones can only use the limited open source version of Android. The Mate 30 Pro was one of the first Huawei phones to be launched without a Google license . ( there )
