NTT Docomo again opens up pre-orders for Huawei P30 Pro

Last updated:

Japanese carrier NTT Docomo are once again to take pre-orders for Huawei devices, after a months long suspension,  due to Washington giving the Chinese company a second 90-day reprieve from sanctions.

Docomo and other Asian carriers distanced themselves from Huawei after it was put on a U.S. export blacklist in May. But on Monday, the Trump administration added 90 days to a temporary license allowing suppliers to do business with the company.

“The decision was made in part because the U.S. Commerce Department extended the grace period for Huawei,” a Docomo representative said.

Starting Wednesday, Docomo will take orders for the Huawei P30 Pro, one of Huawei’s latest high-end phones. The device is expected to go on sale in September.

Huawei phones currently run on Google’s Android operating system, which is subject to the sanctions. But the U.S. is allowing Huawei to have temporary access to software and components needed to maintain existing networks, as well as the security of the devices.

The grace period was originally set to end Monday but will now run through Nov. 18. It is unclear whether Huawei will retain access to updated versions of Android after then.

“We have determined that customers will not face any problems at this stage,” Docomo said.

At the same time, the company pledges to “take appropriate action if there is a change to the situation.”

The HUAWEI P30 Pro has taken an incredible step in mobile photography introducing the innovative HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, an optical SuperZoom Lens, a new HUAWEI Time of Flight (ToF) Camera, and enhanced optical and AI image stabilisation technology.

The unmatched Leica Quad Camera System features a 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, the HUAWEI ToF Camera and a 32MP front camera. The new periscope telephoto lens allows more optical zooming capabilities to be tucked in a compact body without losing image quality.

Together with the colour saturation provided by the 40 MP main camera, and stability of OIS and AIS, the SuperZoom Lens offers 5x optical, 10x hybrid and 50x digital zoom with great resolution and rich detail.

The HUAWEI P30 Pro’s elegant double 3D curved glass body and 6.47” OLED Dewdrop display is both dust and water resistant and powered by the Kirin 980, the world’s first 7nm mobile process chipset. The P30 Pro also sports a class leading 4200 mAh battery, which lasts up to two days of regular phone use.
