"At Huawei," the company said, "we always put our consumers first, regardless of the challenges we face."
"All Huawei smartphones and tablets will continue to receive security patches and Android updates."
"Anyone who has already bought, or is about to buy a Huawei smartphone, can continue to access the world of apps as they have always done."
"Our most popular current devices," they add, "including the P30 series, will be able to access Android Q. In fact, we have already launched a beta developer programme for Android Q which is running right now on our Mate 20 Pro device."
Android Centralis reporting that the Android Q update is apparently being tested on at least 17 Huawei devices and there may be further additions to that list in the coming days and weeks. These include the P30 series, the P20 series, the Mate 20 series, the Mate 20 X series, the Mate 10 series, the P smart 2019 series, and the P smart Z. Android Central adds that while the Honor 20 series is not on its list, they have been told that the Honor 20 series will get the Android Q update as well.
