When it comes to technical specs, the P30 certainly doesn't live up to the iPhone X or Huawei P20.

Motorola, the company that made the first mobile phone and widely known for its Razr phone, has set a new low by copying the design of iPhone X. 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. Dubbed the Moto P30, the smartphone comes with a design that seems to have been "inspired" by the iPhone X. The Moto P30 is not the only new smartphone that went official today. As there is a notch at the top of the display, it has an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The P30 will be available from 15 September, and it will start at only 2,100 yuan (converts to about $300 or £240), depending on whether you get it with 64GB or 128GB of storage. The screen has a 2.5D curved glass layer on top.
