Motorola P30: the iPhone X/Huawei P20 clone nobody asked for

The phone also comes in Apple's Black and White color schemes, with an additional "Aurora" color scheme which literally looks like the Huawei P20 Pro's "Twilight" paint job got rotated a 180 degrees (here's a comparison).

Interestingly, Motorola has not said a word on the global launch of the phone. Motorola has taken it upon itself to spread the notch to new users, so naturally the P30 has various proximity and brightness sensors in the front, as well as a 12 MP selfie camera.

Would you be interested in the Moto P30 if it were made available outside of China?

When it comes to display size, the OPPO F9 has a slight edge over the other two smartphones as it comes with a 6.3-inch LTPS IPS display featuring 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Motorola P30 will be available for purchase in China starting September 15. The rear-facing camera module has a 16 MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5 MP secondary sensor. It has been launched in two variants - the base variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage space and the high-end variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space.

Android 9 Pie requires root to record voice calls
Google's latest Android operating system (OS) is out! This will require you to root the machine to save a file of the call. Another adds: "Pixel XL - can't even get the OEM charger (or an OEM Pixel 2 charger) to work (rapidly or not)".

Under the hood, the P30 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone supports a microSD card of up to 256GB.

While the rear cameras on the three smartphones all have a 16MP primary sensor and come with a host of AI features, the OPPO F9 is the clear victor for all the selfie lovers out there with its 25MP unit. Unlike the iPhone X, the P30 also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and out of the box it runs on Android 8.0 with ZUI 4.0 skin on top.

It is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery that also supports 18W Fast charging input. While the company has officially launched the Motorola P30 today in China, the listing went live a couple of days earlier.

Motorola has even had the guts to equip the P30 with a default wallpaper that's near identical Apple's default wallpaper for the iPhone X (below). Let us know in the comments section below.
