Huawei seems to have kept up with Xiaomi when it comes to wireless charging. The Mate 40 Pro and Pro Plus all feature 50W wireless charging which Xiomi has in its flagship 10 Ultra.

Apps

Without Google Play services, Huawei has continued to build its own app ecosystem. The announcement for the new devices was paired with the launch of Petal Search and Maps. Huawei’s alternatives for Google Search and Maps. Huawei also announced the launch of HUAWEI Docs, available in more than 100 countries and supports document viewing over 50 formats that include pdf, doc and ppt. It is encouraging to see that the company is forging ahead to furnish it’s app library to make up for the vacuum that Google left.

Huawei is expected to make the devices available for purchase in November.
