After introducing many other lineups, Motorola is going back to its roots, the G series, with its two new midranges Moto G30 and G10.
Both the smartphones share quite a few similarities, and rather than being G30. The G30 serves as a ‘Plus’ variant of G10 with some hardware upgrades.
The Moto G30 boasts a 6.5” IPS LCD panel having HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. There’s a waterdrop notch housing a 13MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.
The G30 is powered by Snapdragon 662 along with an Adreno 610 GPU. It has up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage that can be expanded using a microSD card. The smartphone has a 5000mAH battery, which can last for 2 days and can be charged over the USB C at 20W. It runs Android 11 with few nifty Motorola customizations on the top. It cuts out on the 5G, but you do get a 3.5mm headphone.
The G30 features a quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 64-megapixel main camera with an aperture of f/1.7 and quad pixel binning, which produces 16-megapixel images, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a 118-degree field of view, 2-megapixel macro camera, and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
The Moto G30 will be available in select European markets starting later this month in two storage variants – 4GB/128GB and 6GB/128GB starting at €180.
Moto G10 sports the same 6.5” IPS LCD, but it has a standard 60Hz refresh rate, unlike the Moto G30. There’s an 8-megapixel camera housed inside the waterdrop notch.
The Snapdragon 460 can be found inside powering the Moto G10 coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which can again be expanded to 512GB using a microSD card. A 5000mAH battery backs up the G10 with no support for any fast charging.
The Moto G10 features the same camera configuration as the G30, except it has a 48-megapixel main camera with an f/1.7 aperture and Night Vision mode.
Both Moto G30 and G10 feature a fingerprint sensor on the back and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the side. Both these smartphones also have an IP52 rating.
The Moto G10 will be available alongside the G30 in Europe, starting at €150.
