Huawei has launched its latest smartphones without many of the apps typically pre-installed on Android handsets.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro both lack YouTube, Google Maps and Gmail among other software.

They also do not feature Google's Play Store, which is the normal way users outside China install third-party software on to Android 10 phones.

To address this, Huawei has pre-loaded new alternative apps of its own.

A spokesman for the Chinese firm told the BBC that Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp would all be available via Huawei's own store, called the Huawei App Gallery.

He added that there would also be a way to "side-load" Google's apps onto the handsets and that phone store staff would advise customers how to do that, although they might not run as smoothly as normal.
