In August 2018, Huawei was dealt its first blow when a federal law banning the United States government from purchasing the company's infrastructure (as well as other Chinese businesses like ZTE) was put in place.
Although he was delivering the most anticipated keynote, Yu did not address the company's challenges, but instead announced the chipsets and Huawei's latest products.
The new Huawei P30 Pro is now available in two new colors: Misty Lavender and Mystic Blue. The Kirin 990 (5G) has been fully upgraded in terms of performance and power efficiency, AI computing, and ISP, extending mobile phone experiences to a new level.
Huawei, as if often does, pre-empted the launch of its new Mate series phones with the announcement of a new Kirin chipset, the Kirin 990.
Notably, the device will ship with EMUI10, Huawei's variation of Android 10, which Google unveiled last week. Unlike the Mate 30 and Mate X, the Honor View 30 is a mid-range phone, so it'll be the first non-premium device to come with Huawei's cutting-edge processor.
The version of this chipset with 5G integrated can reach download speeds of 2.3 Gbps and upload speeds of 1.25 Gbp.
Yu, said during a media interview that if the situation does not change with the United States government, the company will start using its HarmonyOS, news portal Gizchina reported on Monday. Should another wireless network be using the same frequency band (s) as that used by the Huawei FreeBuds 3, the Kirin A1 chip will hop on to another free one seamlessly while ensuring there is no interference. Besides which, while the recently leaked red model is eye-catching, the white and black variants fail to impress.
Undoubtedly, the design is new, but this P30 Pro also has Android 10 preinstalled.
As for United States chip producer Qualcomm, its chairman Cristian Amon introduced in a subsequent keynote address following Huawei's that the upcoming Snapdragon 7 series platform with integrated 5G is expected to be commercially ready by the fourth quarter of this year. However, HUAWEI revealed a timeline on its slide during IFA 2019 as to when its devices will be getting the update with EMUI 10.
