According to sources, Honor will release the Honor V30 with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) in the European market next week. If this indeed happens, it will be Huawei’s first pre-installed HMS ecosystem smartphone.
Honor unveiled the V30 in the Chinese market towards the end of 2019. The phone uses Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) in place of Google Mobile Services (GMS). This is as a result of the ban placed on Huawei by the United States.
Huawei Mobile Services is a cross-device, cross-platform service. Huawei placed more focus on the HMS after the ban issue came up. Now, with the official launch of HMS, Huawei apparently has complete ecological capabilities.
Huawei may already be recording successes with the HMS. A few days ago, Turkish Telecom signed an agreement to use the HMS ecosystem to serve its customers. In fact, operators in Turkey are reportedly ready to sell 1 million smartphones running HMS applications in 2020.
According to reports, Honor intended to make this announcement at the MWC 2020. However, with the cancellation of the event, the company will reportedly organize a separate media event for this announcement.
Huawei released the HMS Core 4.0 to the world back in January. The company has since revealed that it already has more than 1.3 million registered developers and over 55,000 applications accessing HMS Core worldwide.
