Motorola launches the Moto P30, Moto E5 Plus, and Z3
Last week, we received word that Motorola was sending out invites for a launch event scheduled for today, August 15. There had been reports touting the existence and imminent launch of one—or two—new Motorola Android One devices, the Moto One Power. All of that turned out to be false, though. The company did release three new devices but none of them were the touted Moto One Power.
Instead, the company launched the Moto P30, Moto E5 Plus, and Moto Z3. The latter two are known quantities, as they have been launched in other markets already. The Z3 was announced on August 2, and the E5 Plus has already been unveiled in India, which leaves the P30 as the center of attraction.
The P30 sports a 6.2-inch FHD+ display, a huge notch supposedly giving the device more character. It's powered by a Snapdragon 636 and features 6 GB of RAM and either 64 GB or 128 GB of storage. At the front of the device is a 12 MP AI-assisted selfie shooter, while the rear houses a 16 MP + 5 MP dual camera setup.
The P30 gets its juice from a 3000 mAh battery, with 18 W fast charge keeping things efficient. It goes on sale on September 15 in China, with prices starting at US$305 and rising to US$360
