We were already aware of the fact that Lenovo-owned Motorola is planning to release Moto P30, Moto P30 Play, and Moto P30 Note. And, they did just ahead of IFA 2018 but in the disguise of Moto One and Moto One Power. As a surprise, the brand today launched Moto P30 Note silently in China which is globally known as Moto One Power.
Moto P30 Note sports a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18.7:9 although Moto has advertised it as 19:9. Further, it has a notch that extends to a considerable display real estate although it looks amazing and has front snapper, speaker griller, and other sensors fused on it. There is a little chin at the bottom with ‘Motorola’ embossed on it which looks similar to Honor Play.
Under the hood, Moto P30 Note offers a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core chipset with 64-bit architecture and frequency of 1.58 GHz paired along with Adreno 509 GPU. Further, it has a massive 4GB RAM and an internal storage 64GB and yes, with a memory card slot that allows users to expand up to 128GB. There is a 6GB RAM variant available in China too.
What’s exciting is that Moto P30 Note offers Android 8.1 Oreo with the skip of ZUI 4.0 from the now-defunct ZUK lineup. Since Android OS doesn’t work to its optimum capability in China due to tension between the Chinese government and Google, ZUI 4.0 has been optimized to outshadow stock Android 8.1 with extended features and more.
Speaking of Optics, the device sports a 16MP primary lens with f/1.8 aperture and autofocus feature which the secondary camera placed in a vertical camera assembly is a depth sensor of 5MP with an aperture of f/2.2. On the other hand, the front camera has a 12MP sensor with 1.25-micrometer large pixel size and an aperture of f/2.0 with plenty of modes and filters to try on.
Other than that, the Moto P30 Note supports all latest connectivity features along with dual-SIM support, 3.5mm headphone jack and a battery as massive as 5,000 mAh has been squeezed into the chassis which has the dimensions of 156x79x8.39mm making it a considerable bulky smartphone. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner with Moto logo embossed on it.
When compared to the global variant Moto One Power, the differences are almost negligible such as the battery is 4,850 mAh instead of 5,000 mAh in the Moto P30 Note and it has an Android 8.1 Oreo with support to Android 9.0 Pie which is another USP of a global unit.
About the price for the Chinese market, the Moto P30 Note offers 4GB RAM + 64GB variant at CNY 1,999 or Rs. 20,742 while the 6GB RAM variant is priced at CNY 2,299 or Rs. 23,855. The smartphone is available for sale in China since September 1.
