Motorola P30, an iPhone X lookalike, unveiled by Motorola

On the rear, there are dual camera sensors arranged vertically with the LED flashlight in between both sensors, just as it is on Apple’s iPhone X. Developed by OmniVision, the camera sensors are of 16MP and 5MP quality respectively. While the Motorola ‘M’ logo on the rear seem like an aesthetic property only, it doubles as the fingerprint scanner.

The device is powered by a 1.8GHz Octa-core Snapdragon 636 CPU and comes with Adreno 509 GPU. Alongside the SoC is an Adreno 509 GPU in charge if graphics and huge 6GB RAM for multitasking.

There are three colour variants of the Moto P30 — Ice White, Bright Black, and Aurora Blue. The Aurora Blue variant transition colours between blue and green based on viewing angles and lighting, just like the Huawei P20 Pro and Oppo R17.

The device will run the Android Oreo v8.0 OS based on the ZUI 4.0 out of the box and in charge of keeping the phone up and running is a fast charging 3,000 mAh battery.

Price-wise, the Motorola P30 will retail for $289 for the version with 64GB built-in storage while the bigger 128GB variant will go for $303.
