(China Plus) Chinese tech giant Huawei launched its latest high-end smartphone in Munich on Thursday, the first of its mobile devices not to carry popular Google apps.

"Today because of the US ban... we cannot pre-install Google's applications,” said Richard Yu, who heads Huawei's consumer business group, as he unveiled the group's latest Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro models.

But heading off fears that a phone without popular apps like Whatsapp, YouTube or Google Maps could not succeed, he stressed that the equivalent platform by the Chinese giant offered a choice of 45,000 apps through the Huawei App Gallery.

Yu added that the Chinese giant was investing US$1 billion (900,000 euros) into its Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) core software ecosystem, as he urged app developers to bring their creations to the system.

Huawei, targeted directly by the United States as part of a broader trade tensions with China, was added to a "blacklist" in Washington in May.

As a result, the new Mate will run on a freely available version of Android, the world's most-used phone operating system that is owned by the search engine heavyweight.

Guess not. I don't feel compelled to buy a new phone with my own dosh. Plus, my current phone, which is not produced by  Apple or Huawei, appears to be a sterling one in terms of quality.

RE: " with a choice of 45,000 apps through the Huawei App Gallery"

   People will get used to it...

      The argument that European are used to Google apps will fade away with time.

  After all there was a time folks used the horse carriage to go from point A to B.
Today it's the iron horse and them polluting silvery birds high up in the sky...

Huawei must develop similar Apps that will be more versatile, sophisticated and in other foreign languages; as well as could be downloaded world wide rather than competing with Google and Apple.
