So it's that time of the year now. with the issues between US and Huawei,

Huawei has finally released its newest flagship Mate series smartphones at Germany. The Mate 20 and 20 Pro

the Mate 30 series comes with a new halo-ring camera design which comes with a circular shape that resembles a professional camera. It also has a new screen technology called the Horizon display which reaches up to 88-degree angle.







The Mate 30 phones are based on Android open source, meaning they will still function like Androids. What they won't have, though, is Google services or apps. No Google Maps, no Google Chrome and, most importantly, no Google Play Store.

Instead, you'll surf the web through the Huawei Browser and download apps through the Huawei AppGallery. The AppGallery has around 45,000 apps, according to Huawei, compared to the Google Play Store's estimated 2.7 million. Google typically licenses the latest version of Android, currently Android 10, for phone manufacturers to use. The Mate 30 phones will instead be powered by open-source Android and run EMUI 10, Huawei's user interface that approximates Google's Android 10.

This means Huawei will only be able to bring security updates to the Mate 30 phones when those updates hit open-source Android.

Personally, I'd keep mine and wait for a bootloader unlock code window to open again. I love my Mate 20 Pro.
but seeing the Mate 30/Pro running on AOSP looks

What's your take?

YEah, I'm considering it, providing I can sideload what I need on the phone, eg play services and play store. If sideloading works and everything functions, then I'm in.

I'm not planning on moving to anything. Mate 20 Pro will still be a beast for a few years.

It's a nice phone, but a big no for me, I hate the trend with curved screens, I have problems with my mate 20 pro when using it with only one hand, imagine how many phantom presses you get if the screen is curved more.
Then also I'm rooted on my mate 20 pro, and I'm sure that there won't be any more unlock codes.
The missing Google services is nothing since you can install them yourself.

Yes, I will test it out and then move back to my note 9

I will wait until we have a solution/alternative for google playstore and make my move. I am happy with the Mate 20 pro but if I can upgrade the camera and display I am in!

I do not think I shall consider a phone 📱 that I have to improvise how do I backup my data and mainly pictures. It is so much easier with google than with Huawei backup. I love ❤ my mate 20 pro and without this problem I would go to the mate 30 pro without even looking at other phone 📱.but no without google .
