After launching the first Snapdragon 870 phone and a mid-range phone with a stylus, Motorola is taking us down the memory lane with its new G-series phone, the Moto G30. Motorola’s older G-series phones have always been about keeping it simple, and the G30 is no exception. The phone, on paper, has a solid camera and a pretty huge battery.
The front of the phone has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution, though you do get a 90Hz refresh rate. There’s a notch at the top that holds a 13MP selfie camera.
The back is where its impressive camera hardware resides — a 64MP main sensor with Quad Pixel technology. While pixel binning the phone produces 16MP resolution images with 1.4 µm pixels, and with a big f/1.7 aperture it makes a good companion for low-light shots.
Besides the main camera, it gets an 8MP ultra-wide module with 118-degree FoV. The remaining two are 2MP macro and depth helper. Video recording is handled by the main sensor and is limited to 1080p @ 60 fps.
The video resolution is limited not that Motorola wants it, but it’s due to the Snapdragon 662 chipset the phone comes with. It’s adjoined by Adreno 610 GPU, while out of the box it ships with Android 11 with Motorola’s own software feature on top.
The phone has 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. No 5G here, so you get Cat. 4 4G support with Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and GPS. Powering the phone is a 5,000mAh battery that charges over a USB-C port at 20W speed.
Other noticeable feature includes a fingerprint scanner at the back, a dedicated Google Assistant button, and a plastic body with water repellent design, courtesy of IP52 certification.
The Moto G30 goes for a price of €180, which is around NPR 25,300 in Nepal. The phone will be available before the end of this month.
