The Huawei flagship devices are the first to be launched without Google Play globally

LONDON, 26th of March, 2020 – Flexion Mobile Plc (Nasdaq: FLEXM), the Android games distribution company announces that it is supporting the new Huawei flagship devices P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro Plus with some of its strongest titles. The Huawei P40 series launched today in Paris and will be the first to be sold globally without Google Play and other Google services pre-installed. Consumers will be offered apps and games through AppGallery - Huawei's alternative to Google Play. In February, Flexion announced that it is throwing its weight behind Huawei's Android services framework, Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), and is supporting the Huawei non-Google devices with its market leading software and services.  Flexion has in the last 12 months signed a portfolio of top grossing games that generates more than USD $30m per month in Google Play. These will now be making their way to new Huawei devices.

"The P40 series from Huawei are the first flagship devices sold globally without Google services and we want to make sure that consumers can enjoy some of the best games on these powerful phones. Our leading software and services makes this possible without any additional work for the game developers", says Flexion Mobile CEO Jens Lauritzson.

Flexion has strategic partnerships with a number of key channels such as Huawei, Samsung  Xiaomi, Onestore and Amazon to help game developers reach a wider audience outside Google Play.
