Motorola Moto G30 officially unveiled
The successor to the Moto G9 phones is not called the Moto G10, but Motorola introduces the Moto G30. The company also comes with a G10, but this device does not appear in the Netherlands and is very similar in hardware and design to previous devices that Motorola has released. The Moto G30 has a suggested retail price of 179 euros and must early April are in stores.
The Motorola Moto G30 is notable for its large 6.5-inch screen, which also has a high refresh rate of 90Hz. This means that the screen is refreshed 90 times per second and therefore delivers very smooth images. Displays with a high refresh rate are often seen on high-end smartphones, but nowadays also appear on affordable Android phones.
The specifications of the Motorola Moto G30 at a glance:
- 6.5 inch screen, 90Hz, 1600 by 720 pixels
- Small notch at the top for 13 megapixel selfie camera
- Snapdragon 662 processor, 4GB RAM and 128GB storage
- Four cameras on the back: 64 + 8 + 2 + 2 megapixels
- Runs on almost bare version of Android 11
- 5000 mAh battery with support for fast charging
- Fingerprint scanner on the back, headphone connection available
- USB-C port, NFC and Bluetooth 5.0
The resolution is relatively low at 1600 by 720 pixels, which means that images look less sharp on the Moto G30. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 662 processor, which can also be found in other Motorola phones. Think of the Moto G9 Power and Moto G9 Play. Also present is 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. You can expand the latter with a micro-sd memory card.
Four cameras on the back
The Moto G30 has four cameras on the back. The main camera has a high resolution of 64 megapixels and combines pixels to deliver better photos. Also present is a night mode for better shots in the dark. You can use the 8-megapixel wide-angle lens to take extra-wide photos and videos.
In addition, the G30 is equipped with a 2 megapixel macro camera, so you can take pictures from very close. It is also possible to record macro films. A 2 megapixel depth sensor completes the picture and helps capture portrait photos with a nice depth of field effect.
Android 11, one big Android update
It’s nice that the Moto G30 runs on Android 11, the most recent version of the mobile operating system. Motorola makes few adjustments to Android, so you have clean software. The extra options that are added, such as handy gestures, can be found in the Moto app. You also have options to adjust the appearance of the software slightly.
Motorola says the Moto G30 will get one major update and will be updated to Android 12 in the future. In addition, the company will release a security update every quarter for two years. If you get the Moto G30 at home, you can count on software support until the beginning of 2023.
Finally, the Motorola Moto G30 has a large battery of 5000 mAh, which lasts for two days on a full charge. The box contains a 20 Watt plug to quickly recharge the phone. Motorola says it does not plan to supply smartphones without a charger for the time being, as Samsung does with the Galaxy S21, for example.
Motorola Moto G30 price and release
As said, the Motorola Moto G30 will be in stores from the beginning of April for a suggested retail price of 179 euros. You can choose from two colors: black and purple / pink.
