Huawei and Google have maintained a strong battle so far this year. It was President Donald Trump who ruled that the United States should cut business relations with the Asian technology manufacturer. Since then, Google and Android services are no longer available.
But for Huawei this decision has failed to violate its business and expansionist attitude. The company continues with its projects. And now, with the launch of the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, he has shown that he is not at all interested in begging for Android services.
For the first time since its production of mobile phones, a Huawei phone will not have pre-installed applications such as WhatsApp, Gmail or YouTube. The Google Play Store app store is also not available. Something that is simply more than logical.
The Huawei Mate 30 is consolidated in the market
In doing so, users will not have to take the trouble to uninstall them, as they are useless at the moment, taking into account the commercial blockade established by Donald Trump. If any user wishes to obtain these applications they will have to download them from another place.
For example, they will have to look for the installer file as is the .APK that usually appears in the searches of a portal like Google or Yahoo. Even so, Richad Yu, who is Huawei’s business representative, said in Munich that the company works on an optimal solution so that users can perform these downloads simultaneously and “legally.”
Other applications that are not available within Huawei Mate 30 devices are Google Chrome, Google Maps, Google Play Music and Google Photos. What happens with the divorce between Google and Huawei, is that the Asian manufacturer has a very basic, but open, version of Android.
Huawei has optimal technologies to compete against the American market
So some apps can provide their service, connecting you with certain applications, but restricting their reach. Some Huawei users have been inclined to discard the consumption of American apps and resources to give way to applications and technologies from China and the rest of the Asian continent.
The Huawei Mate 30 operate with the help of Emui, which is a customization model that supports the Android Open Source with which these devices are operating. So with this attitude of not keeping the classic Android applications pre-installed, the Huawei company demonstrates its little interest in a reunion with the American technology market.
The truth is that the Asian technology manufacturer has very advanced resources. For example, we talk about the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) that comes in replacement of Google Mobile Services (GMS). HMS has services such as location, maps and other additional aspects.
The Huawei Mate 30 also has the Huawie Assistan, which completely replaces the talent of Google Assistant. In addition, Huawei has its own app platform, whose number exceeds 11,000 apps. Of course, traditional applications such as Facebook or Instagram will be needed.
