Huawei has officially confirmed the launch of Mate 30 today. The company has been working on the successor to the popular Mate 20 for quite some time now. We know almost everything about the device, thanks to the leaks.
Today, Huawei officially confirmed the launch of the device which is scheduled for 19th September in Munich. The launch dates were leaked last month along with the renders and specs of the devices. The tweet shared by Huawei confirms that Mate 30’s primary attraction will be the camera.

Even with the best in class camera, Huawei still has an uphill battle in front of them. The company has been facing issues since the start of the year, and recently Google confirmed that Huawei Mate 30 won’t have access to Google’s services. While Huawei and other Chinese brands have sold phones in China with Google’s services, it’s hard to imagine a global smartphone without Google’s services. The good thing is, Huawei still has access to Android since it’s open-source and is free.
That said, it will be interesting to see how Huawei markets the Mate 30 on a global stage without Google’s services including the absence of Play Store.
