All of the Huawei Mate 30 series smartphones run Google’s Android 10 operating system with the company’s own EMUI 10 skin on top. Due to the Huawei US trade ban, the Mate 30 series doesn’t come with any Google Play Services, instead, Huawei has replaced them with their own solutions.
Huawei Mobile Services are fully open source and will be providing users with basic functionalities handled by Google Play Services earlier. Users will be able to download apps from Huawei’s AppGallery, which according to the company already has 390 million monthly active users.
