Moto G10 and Moto G30 launched with large batteries, quad rear cameras, and more
Motorola has just launched two new Moto G smartphones. Previous leaks told us Motorola planned to switch things up with their nomenclature. The Moto G10 and Moto G30 are now official and they come with some interesting specs for very reasonable prices, with the former bearing a price tag of €149.99 (US$182). The latter costs €179.99 (US$218) for the variant with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage.
Several key Moto G30 and Moto G10 specifications are identical. For starters, both phones come with a 6.5-inch HD+ (1600 x 720) IPS LCD panel. Earlier reports speculated that their screens would be clocked at 90Hz, but that doesn't seem to be the case for the Moto G10. Moving on, both smartphones get a 5,000mAh battery. The Moto G10 supports fast charging at 10W, whereas the Moto G30 bumps that up to 15W. Lastly, Motorola has thrown in a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication, too. Connectivity options include 802.11 b/g/n Wi-fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, a 3.5mm audio jack and a USB Type-C port. Both the Moto G10 and Moto G30 run Android 11 out of the box.
As its name and price tag suggests, the Moto G30 is the better-specced device of the lot. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, which can be coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Its quad-camera array consists of a 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro lens. A 13MP camera selfie camera sits in the waterdrop-style notch on the phone screen. The smartphone has an all-plastic body and comes in two colourways, namely Phantom Black, Pastel Sky. The Moto G10 runs a slightly less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC. Its quad-camera array is largely similar to that of the Moto G30 and consists of a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro lens. Its selfie camera has been downgraded to 8MP.
