THE Motorola It’s cool. Since its purchase by Google, in 2011, and subsequent sale to Lenovo, the company has turned its tired image at the end of the last decade and has consistently produced interesting handsets with reasonable prices and good notions of its own design. That’s exactly why watching the company launch a device like this P30 it’s surprising – and not in a positive way.
Look at this:
Let’s, for a second, ignore the whole “O Clone” aspect of the thing and focus on the device. The Motorola P30 was presented today at a company event in China, where the device will arrive first – the manufacturer has said nothing about international availability, but rumors suggest that the P30 will reach other markets in the world under the name Moto One (symbolizing its adhesion to the Android One program, which promises a pure system and quick updates for devices from different manufacturers).
In fact, the recipe for the P30 – or Moto One, as you wish – seems right for Brazil, with its intermediate specifications, (apparently) low price and interesting design – ignoring the whole part of being a blatant copy, of course. The device features a 6.2-inch LCD IPS screen with Full HD + resolution and a wide cutout, much like that of certain gadgets; the processor is a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 and the P30 comes with a generous 6GB of RAM.
The two rear cameras, arranged vertically inside an oval module in the upper left corner as in certain devices have 16MP and 5MP, with f / 1.8 and f / 2.2 apertures, respectively. In front, the selfies has 12 megapixels and an f / 2.0 aperture, with facial recognition capability, as cer… Well, never mind.
In addition, we have behind a digital reader embedded in the company logo, a USB-C input on the bottom flanked by two speakers, a headphone output on the top (then I saw the advantage) and a battery 3,000mAh. The system is Android 8.0 “Oreo”, but since it’s a Chinese device, it comes with a very heavy customization layer on top called ZUI 4.0 and doesn’t have Google services, banned in the country – the international versions, however, they should come with pure Android.
The Moto P30 will hit the Wall Country market on the 15th of next month, for 2,100 yuan (approximately R $ 1,200) in the 64GB version or 2,500 yuan (~ R $ 1,400) in the 128GB model. There will be three colors: Ice White (White), Bright Black (black) and a call Aurora Blue (blue) that brings a nice gradient at the rear. This part I would like to see Apple copying.
