In September, Huawei announced the two flagships of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in Munich, Germany. Although the product was later finalized to start at 799 euros, Huawei has not officially announced a launch date in Europe. The two flagships will hit major European markets on November 15th, according to a new report by tech blog TechGarage.
The technology blog learned from domestic sources that Huawei’s Mate 30 series will be launched in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom and Switzerland on November 15, but it is unclear whether Huawei’s first collapsible phone, mate X, will go on sale simultaneously.
The Huawei Mate 30 series will be equipped with the Android 10 operating system and pre-installed HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) suite, rather than the more traditional GMS (Google Mobile Services), the report said. This means you can’t use Google Maps, Chrome or other Google Apps directly.
In terms of price, the Huawei Mate 30, with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, costs 799 euros. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro starts at 1,099 euros and comes with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. If you choose a 5G variant of the phone, you’ll need to pay an extra 100 euros, bringing the total price of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G to 1,199 euros.
