mate 30 Pro

 

Huawei has launched its next flagship smartphone - Mate 30 Pro in Berlin. The only problem is that the phone can't be sold in Germany or anywhere in Europe due to the security ban by the Trump administration. The Mate 30 Pro has a cutting-edge curved display, a more powerful processor, and more cameras than iPhone 11 but it is practically useless without Google's Android software. That means you can't have YouTube, Google maps, Google app store, or any app available on it.


Huawei said that it will provide some workaround to enable users to download some of the apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Netflix. But Huawei knows that people won't buy it without these apps that's why it is not even being launched in western European countries. This could hinder some serious damage on the Huawei sales figure this year. Huawei is the second large smartphone manufacturer of Android smartphone after Samsung. The company was planning to be the number one by 2020 before it got hit by a security ban by Trump.


The Trump admin is also trying to get other countries to block the Huawei's 5G mobile network equipment. The previously released phones are still getting the software update for some time to enable users to have the time to switch to another phone manufacturer. In China, this band didn't affect much because the Chinese people don't use these apps and have alternative apps for years. The company has started to work its smartphone software called HarmonyOS but it may take years to match the Android's functionality and popularity.


While Mate 30 has the cutting-edge hardware to beat the latest iPhone, the company is facing a problem to get the attention of consumers due to the unpredictable situation after the ban. "Huawei has Apple soundly beaten when it comes to form-factor design but even these beautiful looking devices are going to struggle to see any volume without the Google ecosystem," Richard Windsor, a mobile analyst, said in a note this week.

Huawei has started rolling out a new EMUI update for its new flagship P30 and P30 Pro smartphones, which adds a night mode feature for the 32MP selfie camera. The update is currently being rolled out only to the Chinese variants of the two smartphones. According to GizmoChina, the feature is referred to as "super night mode" which enables users to capture high-quality images even in low-light conditions. So far, there are no official photos that describe the quality of the camera. So we need to see how long we have to wait just to wait how effective the new feature is.

 

We don't know how this super night works or how it is different than the usual night mode photography. It is not similar to the night mode feature which is already available for the rear side cameras on both handsets. The existing night mode in the devices has long-exposure which combines several images into one image to create a brighter image with lower noise. The update is called version 9.1.0.193, and it also has packed August security patch and a few other changes. These include optimizations for the in-display fingerprint sensor, activation of VoLTE calling for China Telecom subscribers, and a new video editing feature for the default Gallery app.


Since the update is for the Chinese market only, it may take some time for the super night mode to reach to other users in other regions. Huawei has confirmed that a beta for the P30 will be coming on September 8, and along with the P30, Huawei shared a list of devices slated to receive the EMUI 10 update as well.

Huawei was working on a new operating system after Trump administration enforced a ban on Huawei and Google announced to ceased its support of Android for the company's smartphones. And now, Huawei has officially announced HarmonyOS, the OS that is supposed to replace its reliance on Android. In China, the software is referred to as Hongmeng. The company says that the OS is based on a microkernel distributed OS, and can be used in everything from smartphones to in-vehicle systems. This will create a shared ecosystem across devices. The OS will be released as an open-source platform to encourage developers to work on it.


Since the US ban on Huawei back in May, the Chinese Govt. has shown its full support to the company and company announced that it is going to work on its own OS, but so far, we aren't sure about its reliability and global acceptance. Huawei plans to launch the new OS on a smartphone first before expanding it to other devices like wearables over the next three years. The first devices that will be getting HarmonyOS are expected to be unveiled on Saturday. The focus of this os is the Chinese market at first before Huawei expands it to other markets.

n a statement, the CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, Richard Yu, says that HarmonyOS is "completely different from Android and iOS" because of its ability to scale across different kinds of devices. "You can develop your apps once, then flexibly deploy them across a range of different devices," the CEO says. Although the OS has the ability to power more devices, in a follow-up press release, Huawei said that for the time being, they are going to use it only on the upcoming smartphones. It will continue using Android on its existing phones. Whether it can continue to do so is another matter. In a press conference following the launch, Yu said that the situation was "unclear" as to whether Huawei can still use Android, and that the company is "waiting on an update" to find out.

Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is testing a smartphone with a new operating system Hongmeng, the company's OS developed in-house. This device can go on sale by the end of this year, as Chinese state-media Global times reported. Earlier this year, Huawei had to face trade sanctions from Trump administration which forces to cancel all trades with the company. This led to an international crisis for the Chinese company. While the Huawei band only came into effect this year. The company choose to develop its own operating system after Google refused to continue its license for Android OS. The company has also contributed to develop Android operating system.


We don't have much information about the new OS - Hongmeng. But Huawei executives has referred it as an operating system designed for interconnecting the internet-of-things products. An upcoming Honor TVs is expect to have the Hongmeng as its operating system. The company is using Android as its preferred operating system in the mobile devices so far, but the switch could happen in the near future, bringing Hongmeng to more devices.


In the past, no smartphone manufacturer has attempted such a bold attempt. Android has been the best alternative for non-iPhone users. People are not sure about the future of the company or its operating system but still they are excited to see something strong as Android's rival. It will take a lots of research, support of open-source community and devlopers by the world's second-largest smartphone manufacturer to be able to break-in to the system. Even with this global crisis, Huawei managed to grow by 23% in the first half of 2019. Another information was about the price. The device is expected to be priced around 2,000 yuan ($288). The company hasn't refer any name for this device so far.

Huawei consumer business CEO Richard Yu was recently spotted using the Mate X in an airport. Three months after indefinitely delay the device, Samsung finally announced a revised September release date for the Galaxy Fold on Wednesday. Releasing a phone in September means getting a tough competition with iPhone but it also means getting in front of directly Huawei's Mate X. Huawei's take on the foldable smartphone also broke cover this week after being spotted in the hands of Huawei consumer business CEO Richard Yu at the Shenzhen International Airport, according to a Weibo post spotted by Gizchina.


Although we didn't get any details about when Huawei's competing foldable will launch. The last official statement suggested that the company will release it in September, the same month as Samsung. Huawei's device was due for release back in June but the company had to delay the release to be extra cautious. Huawei's delay was less publically visible. At the time company said that it was taking a cautious approach to release the Mate X. The company spent this time to conduct extensive testing to make sure it was ready for consumers.


As per Huawei it has made significant progress on the device since February but the company didn't reveal any details on what has changed. The hardware is basically the same as it was shown earlier this year. We may not have to long wait until the Mate X release. Samsung had to face PR embarrassment but Huawei's phone was never released for public use. Samsung may have to face the competition but Huawei's license is due to expire on August 19th and this has to clear that what will happen to its OS after that.
