So, the Huawei mate 30 pro range has been launched and it’s coming very soon but unfortunately for summer, we have had some bad news. It was announced before that due to ongoing tensions with the USA in China that Google would still have to cut ties with Huawei meaning no Google services on their latest flagship the Huawei CEO had issued a statement.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro
However, the company will allow users to unlock the bootloader on the phone and this will make it a much easier task for those who want to install Google services themselves.
A quarry spokesperson has since reached out to Android Authority and they’ve stated that the company has no plans to unlock the bootloader on the Huawei mate 30 Pro.
Unfortunately, this news means that many who were hoping to just install a custom ROM, etc. with Google services included may now be put off from purchasing the device well while we will provide their own App Store many people require the Google apps as part of their phone.
Now of course this just means there will be no official bootloader unlocking there is a chance that developers will find exploits which allow them to unlock the bootloader so there is still hope and given the current situation between Huawei and the USA maybe they just don’t want to be seen to be making things easier for users to install the Play services.
Of course as time goes on we’ll see but it’s a shame that people may be put off purchasing what’s an incredible device just because of missing Google Apps well most of the final leaks were correct we now have the official specs of the Mate 30 Pro and it’s set to be an incredible phone for those that missed the launch will quickly run through them the mate 30 Pro comes with.
A 6.53-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1176*2400.
It’s a waterfall display protected by Gorilla Glass 6 and it has an in-display fingerprint scanner.
We’ve got a narrow notch on the front that houses a 32-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/2.0 and we also get a 3d depth sensor with face ID sensors.
On the rear, we’ve got a quad-camera set up in a circular housing and this contains a 48-megapixel main sensor with an aperture of f/1.6 we get a 40-megapixel ultra-wide with an aperture of f/1.8 we get an 8-megapixel telephoto with three times optical zoom and an aperture of f/2.4 and finally we get another 3d time-of-flight camera.
The phone’s powered by the Kirin 990 system-on-chip and there’s also going to be a separate 5G variant it comes with 8 gigs of RAM and a choice of 128 or 256 storage which is, of course, UFS 3 and it can be expanded with a Nano card.
It’s all powered by a 4500 milliamp-hour battery this supports 40-watt fast charging wired 20-watt Wireless in it, of course, supports the reverse wireless charging its USBC ip68 water-resistant but unfortunately, there’s no three and a half mil audio jack it’s of course, running Android 10 in the form of EMUI 10.
It comes in the color options of black space silver, cosmic purple, or emerald green.
For the 256 storage option that the price is 1099 euros which are about 1200 dollars or 970 pounds, it’s one of the most impressive flagships this year.
So, it’s going to be interesting to see just how much the lack of Google services affect their sales and if anyone is able to add these unofficially as always though I’d like to know your thoughts in the comments so who out there is waiting to get the Mate 30 Pro and you think we’ll see Google services on the device via third-party development.
