IFA 2019: Huawei launches Kirin 990 5G chipset

Huawei unveils new chip for flagship phone

Huawei unveils new chip for flagship phone

Huawei has confirmed at the 2019 IFA conference in Berlin that although the Mate 30 series will come with Android 10 pre-installed, the devices will not host any Google apps when the phone launches on September 19. The most interesting part of the first video is the camera lens at the end, which has focal lengths listed as 20-35mm.

But more than that, Yu also intimated that they are considering to upgrade the Mate X to a new chipset.

In reference to the imminent launch of the flagship Mate 30 smartphone, Yu said Huawei is working on a way of letting users install Google apps on the non-official version of Android.

The silver lining to the trade war for Qualcomm, however, is that Huawei's Mate 30 Pro will struggle to sell in Europe so long as the Trump administration prevents it from offering Google services on new phones. Although the launch of the next Mate is likely to be overshadowed by the company's current tensions with the USA government, the chip's capabilities are genuinely impressive, and foreshadow what we're likely to see from Qualcomm and others in early 2020: Improved machine learning capabilities and onboard 5G. The wider notch of the Mate 30 Pro is said to be housing as many as three camera sensors. It's a claim Huawei strenuously denies.

Despite potentially lacking Android and almost-definitely lacking Google apps, Huawei has announced the launch of its Mate 30 series.

The Sky Is Pink, first look out
The first part of the trailer is light and mushy as it shows Priyanka and Farhan fall in love and get accidentally pregnant. It is after years that Priyanka Chopra is coming back to Indian screens as she was last seen in Bajirao Mastani (2015).

On the hardware side, the Huawei Mate 30 is looking much more compelling.

Huawei ban: Winners, losers, and what's at stake (a whole lot) ZDNet's Jason Cipriani and Jason Perlow talk with Karen Roby about how the security and trade brouhaha impacts everything from the future of regional carriers and the bottom lines of tech giants to 5G's prospects and consumer's pocketbooks.

"We will continue to use the Android OS and ecosystem if the U.S. government allows us to do so", a Huawei spokesperson said. The Chinese company has also been developing its own operating system, but at this point in time it's hard to see any newcomer OS taking over the duopoly of iOS-Android. "As always, we will strive to bring our best innovations to our loyal Australian consumers".

OnePlus is only a few months removed from its last flagship launch, but we're already in the thick of rumors around the OnePlus 7T.
