Motorola P30 looks like an iPhone X and Huawei P20 Pro mashup

Posted August 18, 2018

Motorola was a pioneer in the mobile phone industry, but its sales fell in the smartphone era and its handset division was sold to Google in 2012. It was Motorola Mobility which was responsible for manufacturing smartphone.

Google is also extending support to notch displays with its Android Pie. In addition to these devices, the company also took the wraps off the recently rumored Motorola P30, which surfaced in leaks and speculations recently.

The device, set to be the mid-range P30 device with P30 Pro and P30 Note yet to be announced, borrows heavily from Apple's iPhone X aesthetic as has become the norm over the last twelve months. It comes with a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with a Full HD+ (2,246 x 1,080) resolution.

There is a triple camera setup on the Motorola P30 with two rear-facing and a single front-facing camera sensor. The main 16-megapixel sensor made by OmnoVision has wider f/1.8 aperture while the secondary sensor has f/2.2 aperture. The selfie shooter has a regular 12 MP sensor with f/2.0 lens and 1.25 um pixel size.

Underneath its glass body is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor that's mated to 6GB of RAM. The smartphone uses the Adreno 509 for graphics output. The battery, powering the device, is 3,000 mAh and comes with 18W fast charging. That's for the model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage; the variant with 128GB of storage will be available for ¥2,499 ($360). For further expansion, the smartphone includes Hybrid Dual-SIM card slots.

Ditching its otherwise chunky design (for better or for worse), the Motorola P30 is sleek, but if it wasn't for the fact that Motorola's logo was pasted on the front and back, you'd definitely confuse it for something else, because the Motorola nearly looks exactly like an iPhone X with the Huawei P20 Pro's paint job. The company also plans on bringing the smartphone to other markets soon.
