My impression is that Google has become more vigilant since then....

There are two ways the email client can access gmail.

IMAP (with opt label extensions). I don't think that lets on that you're using Android. This should just require email and password to set up.

The HTTP protocol whose name I forget. The Gmail app uses this. HTTP supplies OS and HTML identification. This will open a browser with the standard Google login.

One thing that can ease the problem greatly is if you have a phone service that will continue to work in the other country you are going to, thereby allowing you to receive SMS codes. Gmail treats a "recognize device" better when traveling, and sometimes you can continue to get email on your phone even if you can't login via computer. Have multiple methods set up for 2FA: push, SMS codes, and an authenticator app. One of them might work. Still, I have found that they don't always work, so the ultimate fallback might be printed one-time codes carried in your wallet.
