Since then, the P40 series has also launched without Google on board, negatively affecting product reviews in the press and sales overall outside of China.

The specs of this third-gen P30 Pro remain largely the same as before with the Kirin 980 chipset, 4,200mAh battery, 6.47in OLED and triple rear cameras with zoom lens. A slight bump to 256GB storage joins 8GB RAM, plus there’s a new silver frost colour option (above).

It’ll go on sale in Germany for €749 on 15 May and in the UK on 3 June for £699. That’s a good price for a still-capable phone, but surely it’s the last time Huawei can rehash an old device to keep potential European customers happy.
