The Huawei P series smartphones are known to have an amazing cameras and it has changed the game ever since but recently, their newest flagship series , the Huawei Mate 30 series, didn’t pack Google Play services.
And now, the Huawei P40 series is also expected to follow suit and use HMS too instead of GMS according to Richard Yu, the head of Huawei’s consumer division.
The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro is expected to have advancements in its camera technology again along with the latest Kirin 990 chipset which is used by the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The Huawei P40 series is still expected to run on EMUI 10 based on Android 10 but it will not have Google services pre-installed on the smartphone.
