As expected, Motorola today took the wraps off of a new phone that looks more than a little like the iPhone X.
The Motorola P30 has made its debut in China. It boasts a design that includes a notch at the top of its display and a Motorola-branded chin at the bottom. There’s a vertically-stacked dual camera setup on the back of the P30, along with a Motorola logo that doubles as a fingerprint reader.
Specs for the Motorola P30 include a 6.2-inch 2246×1080 display with 19:9 aspect ratio, octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor, 6GB of RAM, 64GB and 128GB storage options, and a microSD card slot. The dual rear camera setup offers 16MP and 5MP sensors that offer a portrait mode to give your images a blurry background, and around front there’s a 12MP camera with AR camera and beauty features.
Rounding out the Motorola P30’s spec list is a 3000mAh battery, USB-C port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. On the software side, the P30 runs ZUI 4.0, which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
The Motorola P30 will be available in China at a starting price of 2099 yuan ($303 USD) and will go up to 2499 yuan ($361 USD). It’ll be available in black, white, and “aurora” color options.
While the Motorola P30 does bear a resemblance to the iPhone X, that could make it appealing to some people. They may find the iPhone X hardware design attractive, but they prefer Android to iOS, and the Motorola P30 gives them what they want. Unfortunately, there’s no word on a U.S. release for the P30, and it seems unlikely that the phone will make its way here.
