Today at IFA Huawei relaunched its P30 Pro device, albeit with a new chassis. The device now has a dual-tone rear design that’s similar to that sported by the Google Pixel family of devices. it looks quite nice too. It’ll ship with EMUI 10 and Android 10 onboard, as well as Google Play Services.

While the firm has been prohibited from launching new phones with Android and Google Play services, the P30 Pro has already been certified by Google for its earlier release. Huawei probably can’t release an endless string of P30 and P30 Pros to get around this ban in the future, but this at least provides it with a Google Play Store equipped flagship for the latter half of 2019.

Huawei is due to launch its Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro later this year, and we’ll learn more about these in just under two weeks.
