Huawei has found a novel way to keep Google apps on its flagship smartphones – just re-release old handsets like the P30 Pro as a brand new edition… again.
The latest new version of the phone offers the same design as the original, but now has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It now runs Android 10 out of the box and has some new colour options.
So, given the P40 Pro is out there and the P30 Pro is well over a year old, why is Huawei relaunching it for the second time? Well the firm says it is celebrating the anniversary of its release, but we all know that’s not really the case.
Simply put: this was the last flagship phone the company released before the United States imposed trade restrictions on Huawei, preventing it from using Google’s apps and services.
