The IFA fair serves as a stage for major launches, but why not also serve for “relaunching”? Well, the Huawei took a redesigned version to IFA 2019 with Android 10 of Huawei P30 Pro. It is not just to diversify: this is a move for the company to get rid of the sanctions it suffers from the United States.
The “new” Huawei P30 Pro comes with two color options: Misty Lavender (pink) and Mystic Blue (light blue). In both, the rear has a double tone: the upper part has a shiny metallic effect; just below the cameras, the color is maintained, but the surface becomes matte (detail that should please those who are dreaded by fingerprints).
No hardware changes. The Kirin 980 processor is there, as well as the 6.47-inch OLED screen and the triple camera at the rear (40 + 8 + 20 megapixels), for example. From a technical point of view, the big news is the software: the new version of the Huawei P30 Pro comes with Android 10 and, consequently, with the EMUI 10 interface.
It is clear that the new interface brings aesthetic changes, but it is not limited to that. The combination of Android 10 with EMUI 10 also brings the Huawei P30 Pro an enhanced dark mode and, above all, an app that further improves the experience of using the device’s powerful cameras.
This renewal of the P30 Pro, so to speak, is interesting for two reasons. The first is that, with it, Huawei was able to make a presence in the universe of Android 10 quickly. The second has already been mentioned: this is a way to “circumvent” the restrictions imposed by the United States.
You should know that the White House has banned American companies from closing deals with Huawei. This is also true for Google, so the company cannot negotiate services related to the Android ecosystem with the Chinese company.
However, the United States Department of Commerce allowed software updates to be made available to Huawei until November 19 for devices released before the restriction. This is the case with the P30 Pro.
These limitations should prevent the Huawei Mate 30 from being released with official Android apps and services. If so, it makes sense for Huawei to try to alleviate the situation by throwing the spotlight back on the P30 Pro: as this device is not being restricted and has been successful, revamping it is a way to maintain the pace of sales without the States United frustrate plans.
The Misty Lavender and Mystic Blue versions will be released on September 20 in Europe. Previous Huawei P30 Pro models are still on sale.
