After almost everything about the smartphone was leaked on the official website yesterday, Lenovo (Moto) has officially unveiled the Moto P30 today which is more or less a moto rebranded version of the Lenovo Z5 released earlier with a few minor changes.
The P30 sports a glass back along with an aluminum frame. The tall 6.2-inch 19:9 display on the front now sports a notch accompanied by a small chin at the bottom. There are three available color options – The conventional Bright Black and Ice White along with a third unique option, Aurora Blue, which looks like a colorful gradient, similar to the one found on some Huawei devices like P20 Pro.
Not just looks, but the Moto P30’s resemblance with the Lenovo Z5 continues under the hood as well, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset powering the P30 along with 6GB of RAM and either 64 or 128GB of internal storage. The cameras, however, differ from the Z5. The front of the P30 has a 16MP camera sensor with an f/1.8 aperture with support for AI and AR features. The rear houses the fingerprint scanner along with a dual camera module with a 16MP primary sensor along with a secondary 5MP lens for depth sensing.
A 3000mAh battery powers the Moto P30 with support for 18W fast charging. Since the smartphone seems to be a China exclusive device at least for now, it runs on Lenovo’s ZUI which it debuted with the now extinct ZUK series of devices.
The Moto P30 goes on sale for 1,999 Yuan ($290/INR 20,200) for the 64GB variant while the 128GB variant is priced at 2,099 Yuan ($305/INR 21,500). Currently, there is no word about availability outside of the Chinese market, but we can expect Moto to launch a global variant of the device at IFA in Berlin which is scheduled to take place later this month.
