Huawei Philippines has officially launched the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro smartphones in the country today.

Both the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro does not come with the Google Playstore and other Google apps pre-installed. Instead, it uses Huawei’s own “Huawei Mobile Services” or HMS. Apps can be installed using the Huawei AppGallery which has most of the popular apps in the Philippines.

If you absolutely need Google apps, there are several ways to install the Google Playstore, Gmail, YouTube, and other Google Apps on the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. It’s not very simple but not too technical either.

The Huawei Mate 30 has an official price of ₱34,990 while the more premium Huawei Mate 30 Pro costs ₱50,990.

Those who pre-ordered the device will receive a free Huawei wireless charger and Huawei wireless car charger. A Huawei Mediapad T3 tablet will also be given to the first 100 registrants at Abenson.
