Huawei Mate 30 and Mate X will ship without the Play Store and all other Google apps

06 September 2019
A new report confirms rumors we first heard at the end of last month.

US dictator, 16 Nov 2019Do you really expect anyone to believe your lie propaganda? The ... moreBack off puny drone. The violation of the Iran sanctions is reason enough to enforce a ban according to US laws, which unlike Chinese laws are not changed to the whims of one person.
Moreover China's internal operations are completely opaque. What's the incentive to tell the truth even, if the whole country is run by emperor Xi, and all flow of information is under the iron grip of the CCP? The Xi regime has every reason to say whatever suits its favor with zero accountability.
There's a lot of truth to the accusations to the extent of the few aspects that could be verified from the outside, whatever goes on behind closed doors with Huawei and the Party is anyone's guess.

S Yu, 09 Sep 2019They've been making the best PPTs since eternity. And of course... moreDo you really expect anyone to believe your lie propaganda? The US government very much *does* dictate companies what they can do, and what they can't!
In this case, the US government made up fake lies about supposed espionage by Huawei, and used that as an excuse to dictate companies that they can't sell stuff to Huawei - and the companies can't do anything about it! They don't have any choice whatsoever there, they're dictated they can't sell their stuff anymore, greatly harming their business, and they can't do anything about it!

I see NO GOOGLE as a major selling point. Google and especially android have become evil and are nothing more than spyware. I would welcome a new 'private' OS from another operator and I think Huawei would be a good choice because they are adversaries of Uncle Sam's penetration [sic] of all end-users on the planet.

This is really disappointing. It feels like Huawei is being punished for its own success under the guise of national security. There's nothing that the Chinese state could have done with Huawei that the US government hasn't done or tried to do with Google and Apple. Cisco pretty much confirmed that they rolled over to demands that they add back doors into their hardware, which not only makes it possible for security agencies to access them but opens them up to cyber criminals. If you add a back door into hardware like this, you can bet that people will find it who you don't intend.

Whackcar, 08 Sep 2019So you want them to fail because their phones are better than yo... moreyes. So what you want to do now?

Anonymous, 07 Sep 2019NICE, less USA spyware and a cheaper good flagship phone!!! Wait... moreNice, trade USA spyware for Chinese spyware

This is actually a good thing. I've been trying to migrate away from Google products myself.

so the US is against governments meddling in the business of private companies. So what does it do? meddle in a business of a private company - Googles.

Recow, 09 Sep 2019The thing is I still don't believe this will happen....Yeah, this is probably just a one-off thing since the Party is showing signs of concession in trade talks, maybe not even one-off, the ban may be lifted before this device actually ships.

  • cyber

ive hope and the other huawei phones will be stripped from google apps and services,this leading to dissappearing of that junk brand in Bulgaria where i live,soon as everyone lost interest of buying their useless toys they will move away and from Europe at all
