Announced in China, the Motorola P30 is available for pre-order in the country.

Android notches usually differ from the iPhone X's by coming in various shapes and sizes, such as the smaller versions found in Oppo's F9 and the Essential phone, which was the first handset to use a cutout.

Commenting on the similarity between the Motorola P30 and the iPhone X, technology blogger Marques Brownlee called it the "most shameless rip yet". Before the purchase, Motorola segregated into two companies, Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility.

The back of the phone is similarly iPhonesque, unless you choose the Aurora color, in which case the phone is a pretty blatant copy of Huawei's P20 (see below).

The P30 will be available on 15 September for ¥2,099 (£240) with 64GB of storage or ¥2,499 (£280) with 128GB of storage. The phone comes with a 6.20-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2246 pixels. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 CPU clocked at 1.8GHz, and aided by Adreno 509 GPU. If you want it to be more like the iPhone, you can get it in black or white; if you fancy the Huawei P20, you can get it in the aforementioned Aurora color.

The Motorola P30 has been in the news for all wrong reasons. The Motorola P30 also supports expandable storage via microSD card slot. Instead of the typical fruit logo, it gets a Motorola emblem at the rear that doubles up as a fingerprint sensor. While the company has officially launched the Motorola P30 today in China, the listing went live a couple of days earlier. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Motorola Moto P30 packs a 16-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 12-megapixel front shooter for selfies. For selfies, the Motorola P30 offers a single 12MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. Powering the smartphone is a 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery. The smartphone runs the Lenovo ZUI 4.0 on top of the Android 8.0 (Oreo).
