Huawei announced on Chinese social networks the success of its line Mate 30, presented on September 26. Apparently, about 100,000 units of new mobile phones were sold in just one minute. This phenomenon occurred at Huawei's official online store in China, Vmall.
Once the equipment sold out online, Huawei saw a peak demand for the Mate 30 series in its physical stores. So if these numbers are correct, the Mate 30 are seeing success in China. Not surprisingly, Huawei is one of the most respected brands in Asia.
Google's lack of services doesn't seem to influence Asian consumers
It is already well known that the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will come completely devoid of Google services. This means services like Gmail and YouTube will not come preinstalled. For international consumers like in Europe and America, this can be an impediment to buying mobile phones.
However, for Asian consumers I doubt this is a problem. Asian brands such as Xiaomi, Redmi, Realme, Oppo and Huawei have dominated the Asian mobile phone market for several years. Some of these brands have already launched mobile phones without Play Store, which did not prevent their success.
Regarding ROMs (custom versions of Android), Asian consumers are more than used to. Xiaomi has MIUI, Oppo has Color OS and Huawei has EMUI. Also, there are several Chinese apps that can easily replace Google services. China has a culture of its own in technology.
