Huawei gets around Android ban with ‘new’ P30 Pro design

As we await Huawei’s Mate 30 launch later this month, the company has show a “new” redesigned P30 Pro. Unlike the existing P30 Pro, it comes in a two-tone matte and glossy finish, in either blue or lavender. While the design is new, this P30 Pro also comes with Android 10 preinstalled, which is a clever way for Huawei to launch a “new” device with Google’s latest Android operating system.

Just like the existing P30 Pro, these new color options have Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor inside. Huawei also launched its latest Kirin 990 chip today, with a built-in 5G modem. This processor will power the new Mate 30 when it’s unveiled later this month, and it’s certainly going to be an interesting launch to watch. Google revealed last month that Huawei’s Mate 30 won’t be able to ship with Google’s apps and services on board, which means the device isn’t certified for Google Play Store access. That leaves Huawei in the position of having to ship the Mate 30 without access to Google’s key apps outside of China. We’ll find out exactly what’s going to happen when Huawei launches the Mate 30 on September 19th.Huawei could have had this latest redesign for the P30 Pro in the works for months, but the timing suggests it’s an interesting work around for the ban on new Android devices. Huawei hasn’t given exact pricing or availability for this updated P30 Pro, but the company has revealed its latest EMUI10 update (based on Android 10) and it will be available in beta this month.
