Huawei Mate 30 Pro release date in United Kingdom and Price

The phone is landing on February 20 at a cost of £899.

You can register your interest for the handset over at the Carphone Warehouse and you will be notified when it is available to pre-order.

Where the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is more depressing despite it's great piece of hardware quality is the absence of the Google Play Store where you get to download all those fancy applications you want.

Huawei has been able to continue using Android - Google's operating system for mobile devices - because that software is open source, but without access to the Google Play Store, which hosts the millions of apps available on Android. Customers who purchase the Mate 30 Pro will get a Huawei Watch GT 2 (46mm Black Sport Edition) and a pair of Huawei FreeBuds 3 along with the phone - while stocks last. That's a point which interestingly is made quite clear on the Carphone Warehouse page, along with the claim that to make up for this there's a "VIP Support Team" on hand to help you.

Instead the Mate 30 Pro will feature Huawei's own EMUI10 OS and is Huawei's first smartphone without pre-installed Google services.

"Huawei prides itself on delivering stand-out experiences for our customers - and the Mate 30 Pro is the ultimate expression of that philosophy, redefining what is possible on a smartphone". It has an impressive 6.53-inch edge-to-edge display, a bright battery life of its 4,500 mAh battery, a low-light four-lens camera that we describe as & # 39; leader in its class & # 39; in our review, and a lot of power.

Tonight is Samsung's Unpacked event, where it is expected to unveil the new Galaxy S20 series alongside the foldable Galaxy Z Flip - which will no doubt dominate headlines for a while.
