Japan's telecommunications carrier KDDI has started selling the Huawei P30 Lite Premium smartphone across the country, reports Xinhua News Agency.

The carrier says the phone runs on Google's Android operating system, and that customers will receive updates for the software.

It's reported that KDDI is one of four telecom operators selling the phone. KDDI, together with the SoftBank's low-cost mobile brand Ymobile, delayed the start of sales of the phone, which were due to begin in May. The delay was reportedly because of the trade restrictions imposed on Huawei by the United States.

Another mobile network operator in Japan, NTT Docomo, also put their launch of the new Huawei phone on hold, which was originally planned for the summer.

Huawei entered Japan's market in 2005.
