“The P30 is the first smartphone from the brand to come with a notch display”
Motorola took everyone by surprise when a new P series of smartphones were spotted on the brand’s official website in China recently. A couple of days ago, the brand went ahead and launched the debut handset in the range – the P30– at an event held in Wuhan, China. While critics have written off the latest launch as the blatant rip-off of the iPhone X (review), the P30 also marks a lot of firsts for the brand. From the design to the software, the P30 is a major deviation from the current crop of Moto smartphones. Here’s a list of top five features that make the P30 special.

For a while now, there have been speculations that Motorola is working on a smartphone with notch display and it was expected to be an Android One-based smartphone called the Moto One. However, instead of that Motorola has treated us with the P30. The latest handset from the brand comes with a premium 2.5D glass sandwich design and is being offered in White, Black and a blue-purple gradient hue. Up front, the 6.2-inch IPS LCD display comes with full HD+ resolution with a wider notch up top and 19:9 aspect ratio. The notch houses the ambient sensors, earpiece, front camera and a dedicated selfie flash. The brand has also ditched the Moto branding as the P30 comes with Motorola etched on its chin.

Motorola has positioned its latest offering between its budget G series of phones and flagship Z range. However, the phonemaker didn’t cut any corners when it comes to the specifications of the smartphone. Driving the performance of the P30 is an octa-core Snapdragon 636 chipset mated to Adreno 509 GPU and 6GB RAM. The SD636 processor is crafted using 14nm fabrication, which means it comes with improved energy efficiency, thermal management, and overall performance. The brand is offering the P30 in two storage configurations of 64GB and 128GB. The smartphone also has a dedicated microSD card slot for expanding the storage further.

Cameras loaded with AI and AR capabilities

The iPhone X-like dual-camera module on the back of the Motorola P30 comes with a 16-megapixel snapper backed by 5-megapixel secondary shooter. The camera module has been developed by OmniVision with the main camera sporting an aperture of f/1.8 and secondary sensor with an opening of f/2.2. The brand has equipped the camera module with Artificial Intelligence for intelligent scene detection and software-based bokeh imaging. Further, the 1.25um pixel size helps in low-light imaging. Coming to the selfies, the front camera on the P30 is a 12-megapixel affair. The front shooter also gets a f/2.2 aperture, 1.25um pixel size and bokeh mode alongwith a dedicated LED flash.

Motorola is known for offering its smartphones with the stock iteration of Android, however, the P30 is an exception. With the P30, the brand is reviving the ZUI interface from its parent brand’s subsidiary (now reportedly defunct) – ZUK. Out of the box, the latest launch boots ZUI 4.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The interface brings features like optimised sound effects, and improved sleep performance to save battery among others. It’s possible that ZUI could remain China-exclusive and the global variant might come with the stock Android operating system like existing Moto smartphones. However, there is no word on whether the smartphone will launch outside of China.

An AI-optimised battery

The Motorola P30 comes equipped with a 3,000mAh battery. While it’s not beefy by any means, what helps is the AI-enabled power saving technology used in the handset. The smartphone tracks the usage scenario and adjusts the CPU usage accordingly to maintain a balance between performance and power saving. Further, the phone comes with an 18W fast charging technology. This means you can juice up the battery in no time.
The Motorola P30 is slated to go on sale in China starting September 15th. As for the pricing, the 64GB variant will retail for RMB 2,099 (~Rs 21,250), while the 128GB model will set you back by RMB 2,499 (~Rs 25,300). Sadly, the brand hasn’t revealed if and when the smartphone will be launched in other markets.
