Samsung Huawei Go Head To Head With New 5G Modem Processor

Samsung Huawei Go Head To Head With New 5G Modem Processor

Huawei just announced the Kirin 990 that will power the upcoming Mate 30 series and offer an integrated 5G radio. However, the phone faces the same challenges as the Mate 30, in that Huawei will have to navigate an global launch for a very expensive phone without Google Mobile Services.

Local pricing and release dates for the new Huawei products are still to be confirmed, but recent scandals and government bans may prove hard for Huawei when getting the products into retail stores. When Samsung delayed its reveal due to the Galaxy Fold's screen issues, Huawei also made a decision to postpone the Mate X to double check their own foldable phone.

Huawei announced two new colour options for its popular HUAWEI P30 Pro as well as upgraded photography and video editing features, and is ready for the all-new EMUI10 (for existing owners as well). While an exact time frame isn't available, it is safe to assume that the newer variant will at least take a few months to hit the shelves. -China trade war, Huawei has been included in the US government's Entity List.

Potentially, the Mate X could also use Google's Android 10 as they're planning to do so with the Mate 30.

Huawei recently unveiled HarmonyOS, it's own operating system for smartphones, computers, and basically any other gadget that needs an OS.

Lastly, Richard Yu officially showcased Huawei FreeBuds 3, the new flagship wireless earphones of the year.

The Huawei P30 Po has been re-introduced over the weekend.

Google previously confirmed the app exclusion after months of turmoil amid US President Trump's allegations of Huawei infrastructure being used to spy on citizens, resulting in a ban on US companies (like Google) working with Chinese companies (like Huawei).

Huawei say that the first device powered by the Kirin 990 and Kirin 990 5G will be the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. It's going to be dropping in Munich on September 20 and we barely know what to expect. The decision was essentially forced on both businesses by a USA executive order banning American telecommunications firms from using Huawei equipment.

Notably, the device will ship with EMUI10, Huawei's variation of Android 10, which Google unveiled last week. There's now blue and lavender, and the same rear that's glossy at the top and matte at the bottom.
