Motorola P30 was unveiled today, as promised last week. The phone was already listed yesterday on the official Moto website, but today it is available for pre-order. The P30 arrives with Snapdragon 636 chipset, dual cameras for Bokeh effects and price tag of around $300.
The Motorola P30 arrives with 6.2 IPS LCD panel and Full HD+ resolution. There is a notch on top, making the tall screen even taller, extending the ratio to 19:9. The octa-core CPU is clocked at 1.8 GHz and comes with Adreno 509 GPU. Motorola coupled the chipset with 6 GB RAM and two storage options – 64 GB or 128 GB. There is also microSD slot if you need some more room for photos, apps and files.

The dual camera setup might copy Apples iPhone X in design, but the sensors are 16 MP + 5 MP, both developed by OmniVision. The main lens has f/1.8 aperture, while the secondary settled for f/2.2. It has PDAF, 1080p video shooting and offers background blur. Between the sensors is positioned the dual-tone LED flash. The selfie shooter has a regular 12 MP sensor with f/2.0 lens and 1.25 um pixel size.
Since Motorola is a subsidiary of Lenovo, its parent company decided to slap ZUI 4.0 on top of the Android Oreo 8.0. The user interface was introduced with the now discontinued ZUK smartphones and later resurrected with the Lenovo Z5. The phone is currently in China, so by default, it comes without Google services, but hopefully, it will be presented on the global scene later, eventually at IFA Berlin.
The Motorola P30 arrives with USB-C port on the bottom, placed between two speaker grilles, sending the 3.5 mm audio jack on the top side. A fingerprint scanner can be seen in the center of the back panel, marked with the Moto logo. The battery, powering the device, is 3,000 mAh and comes with 18W fast charging.
The phone currently has two price tags for the two storage options, but there are three colors available – Ice White, Bright Black, and Aurora Blue that is reminiscent of the Huawei P20 Pro. The price for the 6/64 GB variant is CNY1,999, while the version with 128 GB storage is CNY2,099. This converts to $289/255 or $303/268, putting the device above the Lenovo Z5.
