Huawei Mate 30 Series: Full phone specifications, price, and more

Huawei Mate 30 features and specs

Huawei has finally launched its flagship device for 2019 and the next year — the Huawei Mate 30. This device from the company is probably the most controversial device in 2019 as it is coming with no Google software and services like the company’s previous smartphones.

The Mate 30 smartphone models do not have the core Google services like Gmail, YouTube, and Google Maps because there is no Google Play Services. That is the core service that needs to be installed before the other services can get onto the phone.

Anyway, let’s see what the smartphone has to offer when it’s finally out.
