Huawei is on the verge of releasing its first major smartphone since being blacklisted by the US. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

There have been many questions about Huawei's future ever since the United States effectively blacklisted the Chinese tech giant in May. But that hasn't stopped the company from pushing forward with its next major smartphone launch.

The company announced on September 1 that it plans to unveil its new Mate 30 smartphones at an event in Munich, Germany, later this month.

The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will be the follow-ups to the company's current flagships, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The launch will mark a crucial moment for Huawei as the firm's first major smartphone launch since the US government placed it on an entity list that prevents it from working with American companies earlier this year.

That means Huawei, which is currently the second-largest smartphone maker in the world, won't be able to work with American companies like Google without a government license. Google operates the Android smartphone platform, which powers more than 86% of mobile phones around the world.

Here's a look at what we're expecting to see from the Mate 30 Pro.
