That's why it has made a formal application to the US government seeking permission to trade with Huawei, as reported by the dpa via Heise.

Huawei is releasing the Mate 30 Pro in the UK, months late and with no Google services

The Mate 30 Pro was first unveiled in September last year, and it's another hugely impressive piece of kit from Chinese tech giant Huawei. The problem is, few people outside of China have had the opportunity to buy one thanks to the US trade ban that is preventing it from being launched with Google apps and services. There's been no movement on that, unfortunately, but Huawei is making its most recent flagship available in the UK regardless.

No wonder everyone’s getting into the true wireless earbuds game — from Samsung to Google to Microsoft to Amazon. And of course, Huawei joined the party a while ago. Its third generation FreeBuds 3, while beating the AirPods Pro to market (IFA 2019), compete directly with Apple’s latest offering.

I‘ve been using Huawei’s FreeBuds 3 on and off for a couple months now, but also enjoyed a brief stint with Apple’s AirPods Pro, so here’s what you need to know.
