We learned a few hours ago through Reuters that Huawei will launch the Mate 30 without Google applications. Information confirmed by the Mountain View firm itself. Huawei recently obtained an additional 90 days to work with its US suppliers, but only to track its already marketed products. The Chinese group is placed on the list of entities of the United States, its partners must submit a request to the US Department of Commerce to obtain special authorization and work with the brand on new devices. But so far, the Trump government has denied 130 permits to sell to Huawei.
Huawei Mate 30: no Google applications, no release in France?
Unless a turnaround, Huawei will have to deny users of Google services and applications on the Mate 30 whose official presentation was scheduled for September 19, 2019. However, if manufacturers can quite sell a smartphone without the Google ecosystem in China, where consumers are accustomed to their absence and willingly turn to alternatives, this is not the case in France and Europe, where this absence will be unacceptable for the general public. What fear that the Mate 30 will not be sold officially in France?

"Without Google services, nobody will buy the device"says analyst Richard Windsor to Reuters. Huawei will probably reach the same conclusion, and in this case, will not propose the Mate 30 for sale on our market. The Honor 20 and 20 Pro, announced in late May 2019 just after the announcement of US sanctions, had seen their marketing delayed for this reason. No release date was communicated at the presentation conference, when the information was initially to be revealed. The only way for Mate 30s to come to us seems to be for Huawei to find a way to legally integrate Google services.
