The million dollar question that everyone wants to know: will the P40 series offer Google apps and service? Simply put, NO. However, much like Apple did, Huawei have created their own version of the apps.

As shown in the presentation we were introduced to “Celia” who is to replace “Hey Google”. There was also a sneak peek at the Google Duo app equivalent called MEETIME. We think it is safe to say, Huawei have done themselves proud.
