The Motorola Moto E30 debuts in low-key fashion in Europe
Motorola had been rumored to launch new budget-class phones long before they actually did so in 2021. Then again, one of the first to emerge, the E30, seemed to get left behind when the Moto E20 and E40 emerged into reality. Now, however, this device has suddenly materialized on 2 European retail websites in advance of their release.
The E30 is now to be found on its maker's Slovakian webstore, as well as on a less predictable platform: the Belgian division of the supermarket chain Aldi. Its new listings confirm that it has many specs in common with the E40, its new, relatively top-end HD+ 90Hz LCD display, driven by a Unisoc T700 processor, included.
The E30 even has the same unique wavy polycarbonate rear panel, although it comes in Mineral Gray and Digital Blue rather than Pink Clay and Carbon Gray as in the E40. However, the newer model does have only 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
Finally, it upholds the E40's tendency to have a 3.5mm jack and, unfortunately, not to support NFC. The otherwise appealing non-5G budget prospect now has a price of €100 (~US$116), as divulged by Aldi Belgium in advance. However, Motorola has yet to specify when the new super-affordable Android phone will be available to order.
