Motorola Moto G30 product details

The Motorola Moto G30 is an affordable Android smartphone with a quadruple 64MP camera, smooth screen and a water resistant body. If you want more information about the G30 despite this brief summary then feel free to read on

Remarkable fast screen

For such a cheap phone, we're pleasantly surprised to find that the Moto G30 boasts a 6.5-inch screen with high 90Hz refresh rate. This kind of makes for smooth animations and there's another added benefit; it makes it feel faster. The resolution unfortunately doesn't go beyond HD+ but that's usually sharp enough for images. At the top of the screen is a notch for the 13MP selfie camera with its own portrait mode and smile timer.

Are four cameras a little too much?

The big star of the Moto G30, however, is the Quad Camera on the back. The 64MP main camera shoots razor sharp pictures with by merging 4 pixels into 1 extra large 'super pixel'. The f/1.7 lens is extra bright, so it still takes clear photos at night. There is also an 8MP ultra-wide-angle, 2MP depth camera and another 2MP macro camera. For the latter, 2MP is generally not high enough to take sharp close-ups. Still, there are enough cameras left that are usable. The Moto G30 does need a moment to process photos. This is because it is equipped with a Snapdragon 662 processor. This is a Qualcomm model, but not the most powerful one

Free case

The Moto G30 is equipped with a large 5000 mAh battery that can also be charged quickly with 15W. This gives you a battery life of 2 days. Wireless charging is not available. The storage memory is 128GB, which is on the large side in this price segment. It can also be expanded by inserting a microSD memory card (up to 512GB). The otherwise plastic casing is splash resistant (IPX2) but not completely waterproof. In the box is a free transparent case for some extra protection. That's a nice bonus.

Photos emerge of unannounced Motorola Moto G30 and E7 Power

Rumors ·

Motorola is reportedly about to announce some new smartphones soon. WinFuture has got its hands on some images of the upcoming Moto G30 and the E7 Power. Both big but above all affordable phones.

According to Ronald Quandt from WinFuture, the Moto G30 gets the most extensive specs of the two. This 6.5-inch device features a Snapdragon 662 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. 5G is unfortunately not included so we are talking about a entry mid-range.

The upcoming Moto G30

On the back of the G30, we find a quadruple camera system up to 64MP. Besides a primary lens Motorola applies an ultra wide angle, depth and macro lens. Motorola is not ready for abandoning the memory card slot just yet and you can therefore simply expand the Moto G30 with a microSD memory card. Finally, the battery is a generous 5000 mAh which you can charge via USB-C cable.

Motorola Moto E7 Power

Then Motorola will also soon bring the E7 Power. Judging by the name, this seems to be a device with at an even larger battery. Bigger than the Moto G30. But it turns out that's not the case. The E7 Power gets the same 5000mAh big battery. So we don't exactly see the reason for this phone to exist.

Judging from the other specifications, it does seem to be an budget phone. For instance, it features an HD+ screen, 13+2MP camera and a Helio G25 processor. The entry-level Moto E7 from 2020 is also equipped with this chipset.

Prices and availability G30 and E7 Power

Both the Moto G30 and the Moto E7 Power have not yet been officially announced. The screen of one of the devices does show the date "April 3" so maybe that's a good indication. The source estimates that the E7 Power will have a starting price of 150 euros.
