Huawei plans to launch a new flagship phone.

Just one problem: it can't use Google's apps and services.

Huawei plans flagship phone launch, without Google apps

Huawei is pressing ahead with plans to launch a new flagship phone in Europe.

The Mate 30 will be an update of its current Mate 20 handset.

It's set to debut on September 18.

Just one problem though.

Huawei can't use Google's popular apps.

The Chinese phonemaker has been blacklisted by the U.S. since mid-May.

That means new devices can't be sold with Google apps and services.

U.S. companies can apply for an exemption from the ban on supplying Huawei.

The Commerce Department has received more than 130 such applications.

But none have yet been granted, and Google won't say whether it even applied.

Now lawyers say Huawei can probably use an open source version of Google's Android operating system without falling foul of the ban.

But the same may not be true of Google apps, such as mapping.

For Huawei, there's a lot riding on the new phone.

Since the U.S. ban, its market share outside China has tumbled.

In Europe it fell to just over 19 percent in the second quarter.

That's down from near 25 percent in the previous three months.
