Huawei changed its mind about opening the bootloader on the flagship Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro

After the presentation of the new flagships Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, the CEO of Huawei's consumer business

Richard Yu promised that new smartphones will have an unlocked bootloader. However, the company now appears to have changed its mind.

What does it mean

Let us remind you that we decided to unlock the bootloader becauseUS sanctions and lack of Google certification. This would give users more freedom to download the Google Play Store and other apps themselves.

However, after the news came out, journalistsAndroid Authority contacted Huawei representatives and reported that the flagships Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will not have an unlocked bootloader. And this will clearly complicate the already difficult share of new products on the European market.

But we still hope that before the start of sales, Huawei will change its mind again and still open the bootloader for its users.
