The American brand Motorola, owned by the Chinese tech giant Lenovo, quietly announced its new smartphone, which became part of the Moto E series. This is the Moto E30, a model that took place between the Moto E20 and Moto E40.
The novelty made its debut, appearing on the official Motorola website in Slovakia and in the Aldi online store in Belgium. In many ways, the Moto E30 is similar to the previously released Moto E40, but with a few important differences.
The Moto E30 is based on the same Unisoc T700 chipset as the Moto E40. The company has 2 GB of RAM. However, unlike its older brother, which comes with a full version of Android 11, the new product runs Android 11 Go Edition, a special version of the mobile operating system designed for low-power devices with a small amount of RAM. Android 11 Go is also installed on the aforementioned Moto E20. For data storage, there is a built-in storage with a capacity of 32 GB, expandable using a microSD memory card.
The Moto E30, like the Moto E20 and Moto E40, is equipped with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with HD + resolution and an aspect ratio of 20 to 9. The new smartphone boasts a high refresh rate — 90 Hz versus 60 Hz for the Moto E20. At the top of the display, you can see a small O-shaped hole — there is an 8-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calling. Three more cameras are vertically aligned on the back. It’s a 48MP main camera paired with a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor for portraits. The triple main camera can shoot Full HD video at 30 frames per second.
As for the autonomy of the new Motorola smartphone, it is powered by a 5000 mAh battery. According to the manufacturer, the Moto E30 can last over 40 hours on a single charge. But you should not count on support for fast charging. The charging power of the new representative of the Moto series is limited to 10 watts. From wireless connections, it supports 4G LTE, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi b / g, Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS. Other features of the novelty include a rear-panel fingerprint scanner, a classic 3.5 mm audio jack for connecting headphones and a slot for two nano-SIM cards.
The Moto E30, like most entry-level smartphones, is housed in a plastic case. Together with all the filling, it weighs 198 grams. The smartphone is protected from dust and moisture according to the IP52 standard.
The manufacturer does not specify the cost and timing of the start of sales of Moto E30. But we must assume that it will be slightly more expensive than the Moto E20, the prices for which in Europe start at 100 euros.
