Google representatives have confirmed to Reuters that the smartphones Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will enter the market without their branded services. The flagships will not have Google Play, Google search, Gmail and other applications that are found on all Android smartphones.
In doing so, the devices will use Android, which is open source software. However, The Verge noted that smartphones could be in a very unfavorable position due to the lack of Google services at the start.
In May 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce put Huawei on the black list – companies banned access to the purchase of goods and technologies from American companies. After that , American companies began to break off relations with the company, because of which it may lose Android support , its own processors and the ability to install microSD cards.
In August, US authorities granted Huawei a 90-day limited license in the country – it ended on August 19. After that, the government extended the Huawei license for 90 days until November 2019. However, it applies only to already released smartphones and does not affect future phones. Therefore, the Mate 30 will be left without Google services.
