Motorola has refreshed its budget E-smartphone series lineup with the Moto E30. The phone borrows existing specifications from the existing Moto E40 but now gets the toned-down Android Go for budget smartphones. Despite that, the Moto E30 gets loads of eye-catching features such as a 5,000mAh battery, a large 6.5 display, and a 48-megapixel primary camera. It has launched in parts of Europe, including the UK.
Moto E30 sports a 6.5-inch HD+ (720×1,600 pixels) Max Vision IPS display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a 90Hz refresh rate. The smartphone packs the Unisoc T700 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB that is expandable up to 1TB via a microSD card slot. The Moto E30 supports dual-SIM cards (nano), and there’s a rear-mounted fingerprint reader as well, for biometric security. The phone runs on Android Go, designed for entry-level smartphones with low RAM configuration. The Go edition on the Moto E30 is based on Android 11. Its triple rear cameras come inside a rectangular module that adopts the same colour as the smartphone. The rear camera system houses a 48-megapixel primary sensor along with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 2-megapixel macro shooter. At the front, users get an 8-megapixel camera inside the centrally aligned hole-punch cutout for selfies and video calling.
The Moto E30 carries a 5,000mAh battery and supports charging speeds of only 10W via a USB-C port. The phone has an IP52 rating for dust and water resistance. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v5, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Its price in the UK is set at GBP 99.99 (approx Rs 10,000) for the single 2GB RAM and 32GB storage option.
