As expected, Motorola has launched the all-new P series today. The Lenovo-owned brand has taken to stage at Wuhan, China and introduced the first smartphone in the range called the P30. This phone also marks the debut of the brand in the latest trend of handsets with notch-toting displays.
The Motorola P30 comes with a 6.2-inch display with a cut-out on top, 19:9 aspect ratio and a layer of 2.5D glass on both front and rear panel. The glass body of the smartphone has been nano-coated for splash-resistance. The performance of the smartphone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor. The chipset has been mated to 6GB of RAM and AI-powered graphics acceleration for enhanced performance. Motorola is offering the P30 in two storage variants — 64GB and 128GB. Out of the box, the smartphone boots ZUI 4.0 on top of the Android Oreo.
Coming to the imaging department, the Motorola P30 comes with an iPhone X-inspired dual-camera module at the back, featuring a 16-megapixel camera backed by a 5-megapixel secondary snapper. The shooters equipped with features like AI portrait mode, scene recognition, AR mode, and LED flash. For selfies and video calling, there’s a 12MP sensor on the front. The front camera is also backed by dedicated LED flash and AI beauty feature, which can detect gender, age, skin colour, skin texture and other data to enhance selfies. There’s a fingerprint scanner embedded in the batwing logo at the back and the handset also comes with the face unlock capability for security. A 3,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support completes the spec sheet.
