At an online launch event today, Huawei CEO Richard Yu took to the stage to unveil the embattled Chinese company's latest flagship smartphone lineup. The Mate 40 series is without Google apps and services, and Huawei's App Gallery is also without a variety of other popular apps.

Huawei's upcoming Mate 30 line is just around the corner, and while the inclusion of Google apps is still a question, an avalanche of leaks over the last two days has answered plenty of others.

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic's regular price of $369.99 puts it at the higher end of the Android Wear market.
