Honor V30 with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) to Launch in Europe Next Week


As most of you might know, Huawei is not allowed to use Google Mobile Services for its smartphones due to the ongoing trade war between the US and China. Since a smartphone is almost of no use without Google’s services such as Gmail, Maps, and YouTube, Huawei had started developing its own set of services for smartphones – Huawei Mobiles Services (HMS) — to offer maps and navigation, mail, video streaming, and so on to the customers buying its smartphones.

Well, the development of the HMS seems to have completed, as the Chinese tech publications are now reporting that Huawei will launch the first smartphone pre-installed with the Huawei Mobile Services next week. And that this handset will be the Honor V30. The brand has already detailed the HMS. The set of services in the HMS will include Huawei ID, Huawei Mobile Cloud, Huawei AppGallery, Huawei Video, Huawei Themes, Huawei ScreenMagazine, and Huawei Browser.

Expect the HMS to make its way into all the upcoming Huawei and Honor smartphones, soon after the brand launches it in Europe next week. We will have to see how well the services from Huawei compare to that of Google. In my opinion, they won’t be nearly as good as the ones from Google. Although, we can’t say for sure until we use it. That being said, people will surely want to stick to Google’s services as all their data (Email IDs and such) are associated with the platform.

As for the Honor V30, the device has already launched in other regions. It packs a 6.57-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution, Kirin 990 SoC, Android 10 OS with Magic UI 3, 40MP (Main) + 8MP (Ultrawide) + 8MP (3x Telephoto) triple-camera setup at the rear, a 32MP (Main) + 8MP (Ultrawide) dual-camera setup at the front, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.1, USB Type-C port, 4G cellular connectivity, NFC, and a 4200mAh battery with 40W fast charging.
