Huawei Works Around Android Ban With Redesigned P30 Pro

Huawei is working on a redesigned P30 Pro with new color options, which is considered as a clever way of the brand to work around the Android ban.

While we are waiting for the upcoming launch of Huawei Mate 30 later this month, Huawei has recently teased about a new redesigned P30 Pro. Being different from the current P30 Pro, the phone is available in 2-tone matte and glossy finish in either lavender or blue. In addition to coming with a new design, the phone will run Android 10 pre-installed, which is a smarter way for the company to unveil a new handset with the latest Android OS.

And similar to the current P30 Pro, the new color options are powered by the Kirin 980 SoC under the hood. The brand also unveiled its new Kirin 990 SoC with a 5G modem. The chipset will be equipped in the upcoming Mate 30 phone expected to debut later September. It is surely going to be a highly-anticipated release to watch.

Last month, the search engine giant revealed that the upcoming Mate 30 will not support Google services and apps. This means that the phone will not have access to Google Play, so Huawei will have to ship the handset without Google app access outside of the home market. For the exact information about this phone, we should wait for the upcoming September 19th launch.

Previously, President D. Trump’s government banned the U.S companies such as Googles from partnering with Huawei. Accordingly, the company had an extension of 3 months from the U.S Commerce Department in May to offer software updates to current phones. This was once again extended to 19 November, but only covering current devices. It seems that Huawei will have to redesign its current handsets cleverly with new software updates in order to retain users in the markets such as the U.S and Europe to use its devices which still can access to Google Play.

The company could have redesigned its Huawei P30 Pro for months. However, Huawei launching them at this time suggests that the brand is trying to work around the ban on its new Android phones. So far, Huawei has not announced the official pricing and availability for the redesigned P30 Pro phone, but it has already revealed its Android 10-based EMUI 10 update and it will arrive in beta sometime in September.
