Huawei is looking to bring its Mate 30 series to Malaysia and make up for the lack of Google services through its Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) platform.
Malaysia has been selected as the first country outside of China to receive the new Huawei Mate 30 Series with the Mate 30 (8GB + 128GB) and Mate 30 Pro (8GB + 256GB) priced at RM2,799 and RM3,899 respectively.
As a quick refresher, the Huawei Mate 30 boasts a triple camera system that consists of a 40-Megapixel main camera, 8-Megapixel telephoto camera and 16-Megapixel Ultra Wide Angle camera. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro meanwhile boasts a quad-camera system supported by a similar 40-Megapixel Cine camera and SuperSensing camera, 8-Megapixel telephoto camera and a 3D Depth Sensing Camera.
They both carry significantly large batteries with the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro carrying a 4,200mAh and 4.500mAh battery respectively. Both are powered by Huawei’s latest 990 chipsets.
As the US and China trade spat have resulted in Huawei not allowed to ship the Mate 30 series with Google service, the newly introduced Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) platform will act as the phone’s full-fledged operating system covering all essential services a user would need and want.
The announcement came on the back of Huawei’s Malaysia Ecosystem Conference (HMEC) 2019 where it announced partnerships with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) and Media Prima.
A total of 200 delegates from the government to industry players, business partners and budding app developers look to support this growing ecosystem.
Huawei also announced that Malaysia is one of the first countries globally to be part of the Huawei Shining Star programme. This is an initiative to encourage global developer innovation under which resources amounting to US$1 billion (RM4.1b) would be main available to provide key support for app developers.
