America imposed a trade ban on China last year. As a result, Huawei has lost its Android license and the company can no longer release new phones with Google apps and services. Huawei can spring this dance by rebranding older phones.
The company is, therefore, launching new devices with Google apps and services by releasing an older device with some improvements. These older phones do have that Android license. An example is the Huawei P30 Lite New Edition and now also the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition. Both come with Google apps and services, including the Google Play Store.
