Motorola P30 now official with dual rear cameras and 6.2-inch display

18 August 2018

Bonus: a Motorola P30 color version that looks a lot like the Twilight P20 Pro from Huawei. After giving us the Moto Z with some handsome modules that went on to A. Prove Google wrong (by showing modularity is possible and can do wonders for phones) B. win a couple of Red Dot Design Awards in the process too, Motorola's latest phone, the P30 is an absolute plummet from grace for Motorola.

Motorola launched a new phone this week, the P30. The P30 bears some similarities with the iPhone X thanks to a wide notch and a vertical dual rear camera setup.

Motorola today launched its first smartphone with a notched display at an event held in China. CNET says the phone is an "iPhone X with a glamorous splash of color". As of now, the Motorola P30 is only limited to the Chinese market.

When it comes to display size, the OPPO F9 has a slight edge over the other two smartphones as it comes with a 6.3-inch LTPS IPS display featuring 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Available with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage, the latest Motorola smartphone comes with Android 8.1 Oreo, and the OEM manufacturer's own user interface has been replaced by ZUI 4.0.

The P30 will be available on 15 September for ¥2,099 (£240) with 64GB of storage or ¥2,499 (£280) with 128GB of storage.

The Moto P30 is equipped with a 16MP + 5MP AI dual-camera setup at the rear with an f/1.8 aperture, AI Portrait Mode, and AI-powered intelligent scene recognition. For selfies, the Motorola P30 offers a single 12MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.

The front comes with a notch that's slightly narrower than the iPhone X, and a base that houses the Motorola's logo, probably to avoid a scathing lawsuit from the guys at Apple.

But many smartphones stick very closely to Apple's design.

"Maybe not as fast". On the rear, a premium glass build is featured in addition to the Moto Mods pin connector which is more important than ever due to the 5G Moto Mod that is coming early next year.

While the rear cameras on the three smartphones all have a 16MP primary sensor and come with a host of AI features, the OPPO F9 is the clear victor for all the selfie lovers out there with its 25MP unit. This display allows us to put a 6.2-inch panel into the body of a 5.5-inch smartphone. The biggest highlight of the phone is its display cutout, making it the first Motorola phone to sport the notch.
