Huawei passed 12 million sales mark with its Mate 30 lineup.
The figure is quite impressive given the limited availability of the handsets outside of China and their lack of Google Mobile Services.
Looking ahead, Huawei’s goal with the Mate 30 lineup is to top the 20 million shipments mark which seems like an attainable goal judging by the current sales volumes.
The Mate 30 duo relies on Huawei’s proprietary Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), instead of Google Mobile Services (GMS) for core functionalities. This means you will not see typical apps like Google Play store, Google Maps and YouTube on the device.
In our time with the Mate 30 Pro, we found its one of the best all-around Android flagships of the year. Its spectacular cameras produced some of the best shots in both day and night scenarios, the display delivered impeccable bright and accurate picture quality and the battery held on more than well. The lack of Google services is the only reason it’s not getting more attention but despite all the hurdles it’s good to see that Huawei is still going strong.
