Without mincing words, if you are using a Huawei mobile smartphone, you can not get access to any Google services whatsoever, meaning, you possibly are going to face tremendous odds.
You’re on your own! Lol
Huawei was blacklisted by the US government back in May 2019 over alleged national security concerns. As such, the Chinese OEM lost access to Google for its new phones, causing a major plunge in international sales.
More than a year later, Huawei hasstill been trying to get back to normalbut with so much struggle. Well, it seems a new strategy is reportedly in place now.
What has happened since the Trade Ban?
If you can remember well,the P30 series launched early 2019 was the last bunch from Huawei right before the company was banned from doing business with Google. This, of course, was alongside other American companies but the focus seemed was obviously on that one scenario.
Many external claims after the launch of this device have also solidified the decision ruling Huawei from using Google services on their future devices.
A certain anonymous photographer also mentioned how Huawei used a pre-existing image of the moon to cook up fake real-time images of the moon when Huawei P30 Pro users exceed the 10x zoom level.
Total photographic chicanary!
Though, this discovery wasn’t totally proven, we all know this didn’t help the Huawei fight against the trade decision ban at all.
New flagship line-ups, the Mate 30 and P40 did launch early this year without Google apps but wouldn’t really be classified as “successful” when it comes to sales.
As much as one can still download apps through APKs, you miss out on a lot of benefits like timely updates and the seemles transition between Google services say Gmail and the Play Store.
In fact, most of the Google apps you would actually need cannot even be installed in any way.
A phone without Google services had been predicted to be the start of Huawei’s nightmare and deep down, it has not been that smooth for the Chinese tech giant.
Even if Huawei user have been urged to use apps from the Huawei App Galary and also the promise of a custom “Huawei Mobile Services”, nothing sure beats that stock Android feeling.
However, news coming from Huawei’s own German-language site,Huawei Central, imply that a “new” flagship phone will soon be launched packing Google apps.
Which begs the question. How in the world could Huawei evade the Trade Ban to launch a smartphone packing Google services? Which logically is quite impossible! But there’s a catch.
How Huawei ‘could’ launch new smartphone with Google services
Spotted at the terms and conditions section for an impending list of P30 phones. Among them is one “P30 Pro NEW EDITION”, which as far as we are concerned, has never been unveiled.
Huawei hopes to use this loophole to launch a new smartphone logically bypassing the Google services ban.
However, you should note that none of these claims has been confirmed by Huawei.
Earlier this year, the P30 Lite saw a ‘New Edition’ launched with more RAM and storage than the original. But what the company really wanted was to relive the past old days of having a new phone with Google services and remaking older devices seemed to be the only way.
So, just maybe, Huawei will be doing the same with a high-end model that was considered to be one the most popular in 2019. The main question would be what specifically would be upgraded with this P30 Pro “new edition” if it is actually in the works.
What happens if Google decides not to legalize Huawei pushing out Android updates for existing phones? So many questions, yet few answers.
Additionally, it is not clear how long this tactic of renewing older devices and fixing Google services right in them will really work for Huawei but for now, it seems the company is making the most of that loophole.
However, as the future of China’s front-ranking mobile phone brand, Huawei has already become uncertain with thousands of its existing customers and is in no doubt losing that accolade real quick with fellow Chinese manufacturer – Xiaomi already lurking in the background.
Having had its design revealed through an information leak, now the most important details about the specifications of the Huawei Nova 6 have been revealed.
The information has been advanced by 91Mobiles, but it is important to note that they claim no 100% warranty from their source. Still, even if some small details aren’t 100% accurate, it gives us a good idea of what we can expect from this new high end.
Huawei Nova 6 will be perfect for selfies with its dual front camera
As confirmed by the previously leaked image, the Huawei Nova 6 will come equipped with a dual front camera, which will be embedded in a punch-hole similar to what we see in the Samsung Galaxy S10 +. We have now learned that its capabilities will be quite impressive, with a 32-megapixel main sensor and a 12-megapixel secondary sensor.
For its “quad-camera” on the rear panel, it will come with a 60-megapixel main sensor, backed by a 16MP second and two 2MP sensors. It seems that this smartphone will be a great investment for those who value their selfies.
Another highlight is undoubtedly its 4,000mAh battery, which will come with 40W charging support. This new charging technology from Huawei has been named “Magic Charge”. Although no information on charging times has appeared, you can expect to be able to complete a charge in less than 1 hour.
Otherwise, the Huawei Nova 6 is expected to be powered by the powerful Kirin 990 processor, backed by up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory.
Huawei continues to go through a very difficult time in Europe and has been banned from launching new smartphones powered by Google applications and services. The first impact of the US measures was felt with the launch of Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
However, despite the problems in Europe, the manufacturer continues to grow in the biggest market in the world, China. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 5G models were extremely popular. According to the brand, it took just 1 minute for the 100,000 units available to sell out.
Huawei will only be able to dream of similar success in Europe
While their smartphones are among the best today, the absence of Google services and apps is a real deal breaker for users in Europe.
Unlike in China (where there are no Google Apps and services), in Europe, these tools are essential for everyday smartphone use. Therefore, the manufacturer decided to launch the smartphone in only a few markets and in very limited quantities.
Unless they can solve the current problems with the United States, and get permission to do business with Google again, Huawei faces a very dark future in Europe.
Undoubtedly, this war is also hurting millions of users who wish they could buy the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G. Forgetting the absence of Google services, this is one of the best smartphones today.
