The Mate 30 Pro was Huawei's first flagship to be released without Google Services support, and it seems that will continue with the upcoming Mate 40 Pro, as President Trump has now extended the trade ban by an extra year.

Huawei has endured a frosty relationship with the US government for two years now. All of that drama culminated in a trade ban imposed on the company by the US government that has seen Huawei unable to do business with any American companies—with the implication of also being unable to release phones running Google Services.

While some may have expected that ban to possibly be close to getting lifted, reality is often disappointing. Just yesterday, US President Donald Trump extended the ban that prevents US companies from doing business with the foreign corporations on the government's no-bueno list, of which Huawei is a part.

For this reason, the national emergency declared on May 15, 2019, must continue in effect beyond May 15, 2020.  Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13873 with respect to securing the information and communications technology and services supply chain.

This means that, like the Mate 30 Pro and P40 Pro, Huawei's upcoming Mate 40 Pro will have to make do without Google's Play Services. That makes it dead on arrival for most potential buyers, and that's a shame. The Mate 40 Pro is expected to be powered by a 5nm Kirin 1020.
