Not much to be happy about, considering how shitty Kirin 990 is, major disappointment

Huawei have the resources to create PDKs of all the popular Google Play apps and make them available in their own app store to be sideloaded to their phones. They can even create an app on the phone to automate the process for those who are not tech-savvy enough to do the sideloading themselves. There's life without Google Play!

"COULD" is the keyword.

Huawei loves to brag, and if they dont have a concrete date yet its because it's not ready yet and they dont even know when.
