Motorola has just unveiled the latest in its midrange G-series in Europe – the Moto G30 and G10.
The two new Moto G-series devices share a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with a 720×1600 resolution. The difference is that the Moto G30 features a 90Hz refresh rate while the Moto G10 has a more standard 60Hz refresh rate. In addition, they both feature a 5000mAh battery that charges via USB-C but the G30 supports up to 20W charging while the G10 only goes up to 10W charging.
The Moto G30 and G10 also have plastic bodies with an IP52 rating making them water-repellent and dust proof.
As far as optics go, the G30 features a quad camera led by a 64MP sensor with Quad Pixel tech which combines four pixels into one. It effectively has 1.4 µm pixels and 16MP resolution, which combined with f/1.7 aperture lays the groundwork for its Night Vision mode. The main lens is joined with an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. Up front, it has a 13MP snapper housed in its notch.
The Moto G30 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 at the helm coupled with 4GB/6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Its storage is expandable but the dual-SIM version limits you to either two SIM cards or a single SIM card and a microSD card.
It runs on Android 11 out of the box with a few Motorola-developed features on top. The G30 supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC. It also has a 3.5mm audio jack and an FM radio receiver as well.
The Moto G30 will be available in Pastel Sky and Phantom Black.
The Moto G10, on the other hand, is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chipset with 4GB RAM and 64/128GB internal storage with up to 512GB of expandable storage via microSD card. You’ll have to forego a second SIM card though if you want to expand its storage.
The G10 shares pretty much the same rear camera setup as the G30 except the main camera which is demoted to a 48MP snapper. It is the same size though which means post-binning pixels are a bit larger at 1.6 µm. It retains the f/1.7 aperture and Night Vision mode as well. The front camera is also now a 8MP shooter.
As far as connectivity goes, it is pretty much the same as the G30.
The Moto G10 will come in Iridescent Pearl and Aurora Grey colorways.
Price and availability
The Moto G30 and G10 will be available in select European countries before the end of February. The Moto G10 will retail for EUR 150, while the G30 is priced at EUR 180.
