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.”

Washington is effectively banned U.S. companies from providing Smartphone in May, and is derived from a Chinese company, it is a national security risk when the equipment is to be used by Beijing to spy on you, that Huawei has repeatedly denied.

No. 2 mobile phone maker, expects the U.S. prohibition costs $10 billion.

Huawei’s new phone launch was marked by uncertainty as to whether the company will be the flagship Android device will be able to get the apps supported by Google (GOOGL.R), a unit of the Silicon Valley giant a-z (GOOGL.D).

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).


In the Level 30 range, it will run on an open-source version of Android, and it is not in the current version, licensed by Google, a source familiar with the matter said.

The smartphone will not be able to take advantage of Google Mobile Services, use the google Play Store and download an app, such as Gmail, Youtube or Maps. Instead, Huawei will provide its own interface through which users will be able to access a variety of Google apps.

Without these people, say the analysts, consumers will not want to use that phone except Huawei, you can find a way to convince them that the possibilities are endless and, in the alternative, to provide software, it is a stable and easy-to-use.

Huawei says that the phone is the “brain” – the Kirin 990 chipset was unveiled at a recent tech trade show in Berlin, better performance than the Qualcomm-powered (QCOM.D) 5 g of the phones that are currently on the market, from the market leader Samsung (005930.ME).

In particular, the “big core, little core” configuration of the hardware, meaning that it can run power-hungry applications, such as artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence, or online gaming, while trying to save the battery life on routine tasks.

In the Level 30 range, the look and feel of a superior, Apple’s (AAPL.(O) new iPhone, 11s, according to analyst Richard Windsor, said that the leaked photos showed a very attractive, round, triple camera set-up.

“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.

Huawei is expected to show the Level Of 30, Pro, to the Extent of 30 and 30 of the method is in line with the existing strategy, which aims to buyers on a variety of budgets. The phone should come in both a 5G and a 4G version.
