Huawei Mate 30 may not be Shipped with Google Play Apps & Services

According to a latest report by Reuters, the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 series may not be shipped with Google Play apps and services as a result of the recent U.S. trade restriction on Huawei.

This came directly from a Google’s spokesman who told Reuter that “the Mate 30 cannot be sold with licensed Google apps and services due to the U.S. ban on sales to Huawei.”.

Although U.S. companies can apply for license to exempt specific products from the ban, but Google has yet to comment if they have applied for such license which could allows them to continue offering Google Play Services to Huawei smartphones.

This is definitely a huge blow to Huawei’s smartphone arm which will reportedly lost an estimated revenue of US$10 billion due to the trade ban imposed on the company.

However, Huawei will reportedly forge ahead with the Mate 30 series unveiling on September 18th in Europe, although it may decides to push back it’s launch date a little.
