The European patent office received applications for two new color options for the Huawei P30. One is almost a gradient, the other is a dual tone paint job, reminiscent of the panda version of the Pixel 2 XL.
The gradient version is a variation of the P30’s Breathing Crystal, though it if you look closely, youll see that it uses the dual tone design too the top third of the back is a separate panel. The effect is much more subtle, however.
The applications were filed in late May and were published a few days ago. This suggests that Huawei may officially the new colors at IFA as an extra during the Mate 30 announcement. Its not clear if the Huawei P30 Pro will get new colors as well.
By the way, Huawei does this kind of thing last year at IFA it unveiled four new color options for the Huawei P20 Pro (it was the vanilla P20 that missed out back then).
