Huawei P30 Pro New Edition now on sale in Germany as promised
Love or hate Huawei, you have to give the company credit for persistence. The embattled Chinese smartphone and telecoms giant has rehashed the P30 Pro 2019 flagship for a third time with new P30 Pro New Edition. A key selling point for the device is, along with the still strong Kirin 980 SoC and camera performance, is that it ships out of the box with an official version Google Android 10 with full Google services onboard.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock (which is possible given all the COVID-19 craziness), you will know that Huawei is banned from shipping devices with Google’s official version of Android complete with Google services. The P30 Pro New Edition skirts this US government ban by retaining the same design features and components as the original P30 Pro which was the last device that shipped before Huawei found its way on to the US Government Entity List.
What exactly is new about the New Edition? Nothing other than the new Silver Frost color that joins the Black and Aurora colors. For a limited period, it will also come with bonus Huawei FreeBuds 3 (which really are free in this instance, but you will only get one pair) and a Huawei Mini Speaker if you pre-order before it ships on May 31. Similarly, an order before May 31 will give you access to a Huawei Watch GT2 for just 99 Euro on top of the 749 Euro asking price -- 250 less than its launch pricing.
