System

Huawei Mate 30 Pro will run on customized EMUI 10 based Android 10. Huawei also confirmed that the Mate 30 series rather than using Google Mobile Services it will use its own Huawei Mobile Services which features the Huawei AppGallery store. The custom EMUI includes essential apps such as Huawei browser, Themes, Cloud, and Music, among others.

Huawei AppGallery store

EMUI 10 comes with a dedicated Dark Mode which instead of simply reverting the black and white color, repeated human-centric lab tests provided an undisputed reference for selecting the most comfortable color contrast and gradation in dark mode. This human-centered design can avoid extreme brightness stimulation to deliver a more comfortable and immersive reading experience.
