Huawei has just launched a brand new variant of the Huawei P30 Pro in Germany, dubbed the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition. It comes in a brand new and fancy Silver Frost colour, and it features the full suite of Google Services despite the blacklisting.
The Huawei P30 Pro New Edition has the same Kirin 980 octa-core processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage as the original. Other than the new Silver Frost color, there are no differences in hardware between the New Edition and the original P30 Pro.
So, why would Huawei re-launch the P30 Pro, considering there’s already the Huawei P40 and P40 Pro? The main reason here is because the Huawei P30 Pro still has the rights to use Google Services. Although Huawei can’t get GMS certification for new phone models, the certifications are still valid for existing models.
Thus, so long as the changes that Huawei makes to an existing model allow it to run the exact same software release that Google already certified, then Huawei can re-release and rebrand their existing phones as many times as they like. It’s a rather smart move, especially considering how the P30 Pro is still an excellent device.
The actual phone will set you back €749, which is a little less than the original’s official RRP but more than the promotions offered by other retailers. Huawei are also throwing in a couple of freebies as well as a discounted smartwatch. If you really want the freebies and the discounted Watch GT2, then the P30 Pro New Edition may well be the most cost-effective method.
