The Chinese telecom giant, will be presenting its ner in a 30, in Munich, Germany, during the first unveiling of a new phone, because the President is Donald Trump, the Shenzhen-based company, with an export ban in mid-May.

“The launch will be the most watched ever,” said a telecom and media analyst Paolo Pescatore.

“In spite of all the problems surrounding the Smartphone, as well as the challenges it continues to be challenging, and be prepared to soldier on.”

Press and hold to launch in Europe and underlines the importance of the region’s 500 million consumers to the Smartphone. They lost by five percentage points in the share of the market here in the US to ban it, even if the buyers will rally to his notice in the house.

Huawei has been running an online marketing campaign with the slogan “Rethink the Possibilities”, raising the fans to spread the word about the launch. This site will be a live stream of the event, which begins at 2 pm (1200 GMT).


The structure was characterized by uncertainty as to whether the company will be the flagship Android device will be able to get the apps supported by Google.

Google, and the unity of the Silicon Valley tech giant a-z (GOOGL.(O) said it will not be possible to make the sale to the Extent of 30 licensed applications and services from Google, such as google Play Store, and the popular tools such as Gmail and google Maps.

“Huawei has Apple beaten soundly when it comes to its form factor design, however, even these nice-looking devices that are going to struggle to see the volume without using the Google ecosystem,” Windsor said in a note.

Analysts are keen to know when the phone will actually ship, and how are the prices of the top-end of Level 30 And the Pro compare to the Samsung Galaxy S10 5 G, which retails at $1,299, and the phone in 11 Pro starts, at $999, but does 5G connectivity.
