Motorola – the brand owned by China’s Lenovo, has unveiled another mid-range device dubbed as Moto P30 that resembles with the iPhone X in its appearance as it replicas the famous notch design first introduced by the Cupertino based tech giant – Apple. In this way the Moto P30 joins the never-ending list of iPhone X clones.
Moto P30 – Features
The Moto P30 brings a 6.2-inch IPS LCD panel on the front with the trendy 19:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels. The notch on top decoys the iPhone X on first sight but the cramped Motorola logo at the bottom gives the phone’s identity away.
Interestingly, Lenovo has adopted the same design features of iPhone X on the rear by introducing the vertically aligned dual camera setup. However, the M logo on the fingerprint scanner on the back reminds you that this is indeed a Motorola.
The Moto P30 is a dual SIM enabled handset that runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box customized by the ZUK brand’s ZUI 4.0. The device gets powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 636 chipset under the hood paired with 6GB of RAM. There are two storage options of 64GB and 128GB which can be expanded via a microSD card slot.
The photography department is dominated by a dual-camera setup on the rear comprising of OmniVision-made 16 MP + 5 MP lenses; supporting all the popular filters, including bokeh effect. The front comes with a 12 MP lens with 1.25um pixel size.
The Moto P30 is fuelled by a 3000 mAh power source that seems a bit compromising factor keeping in view the large display and powerful internals.
Moto P30 – Pricing and Availability
Lenovo has announced the availability of Moto P30 for its hometown China starting from September 15 in Aurora Blue, Black and White colour options with price tags set at CNY 2,099 (~$305, PKR 37,600) for the 6GB/64GB model and CNY 2,499 (~$363, PKR 44,800) for the 6GB/128GB variant.
Although not officially announced as of now but we expect to see Moto P30 making its way to other markets including Pakistan and India very soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
