And it’s a resounding YES
Huawei’s troubles have been well documented in recent months. To put it simply, Huawei is the equivalent of the token Hollywood teen superstar; rising to fame at an accelerated rate only to get caught up in some drug or sex scandal and have it all come crashing down to earth. Ok, maybe that’s a bad analogy, but you get it.
We already knew that the upcoming Mate 30 series will not be getting licenced versions of Android as well as any access to official Google apps but the big question on everyone’s minds was whether or not their current flagship model, the P30 Pro, will be getting the Android 10 update. Google did announce that it would continue to support existing Huawei models but with Donald Trump as POTUS, you never really know.

Thankfully for all you P30 Pro users out there, Google has come through on their word. At IFA 2019, A huge Huawei promotional banner was spotted hanging rather proudly and on it was the P30 Pro in two new colourways along with the words “The New Huawei P30 Pro With Android 10”.
With all the L’s the company has been taking lately, this is a much needed win. As shady as the company is (and as hard as it is for us to say), the P30 Pro is an impressive device and this announcement should help allay consumer fears about picking up the device.
You can breathe that sigh of relief now.
