Motorola just unveiled two new Moto G series devices named the Moto G10 and Moto G30. So it looks like Motorola has now changed its naming style because earlier, the number for each new Moto G series was incremented by one, for example, Moto G9 after Moto G8. Both of these are budget offerings from the brand and while G10 is priced at €149, the G30 is priced at €179. At first glance, both the phones look the same but there are some changes when we talk about the specifications.
MOTO G10 & MOTO G30 – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
Speaking of the design first, both the phones have a plastic build and both have a similar-looking camera module that has four cameras in it. The only difference is that G10 has ’48MP’ written on the camera module while it is ’64MP’ in the case of the G30. There is a display with a waterdrop notch on the front and a thick bottom bezel. On the bottom, there is the USB Type-C port and on the top, there is the headphone jack.
Both the phones have a rear-facing fingerprint scanner and three buttons on the right side that include one dedicated Google Assistant button.
Both the phones have a 6.5-inch 720p IPS LCD but while G10 has a 60Hz panel, the panel on G30 has a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, there is Snapdragon 460 powering the Moto G10 while the G30 gets Snapdragon 662. The battery size is also the same for both phones i.e., 5000mAh but while G30 supports 20W fast charging, it is limited to 10W in the case of the G10.
One major difference between the two phones is in terms of the primary rear camera. There is a 64 Megapixel sensor on the Moto G30 and a 48 Megapixel sensor on the Moto G10, both featuring pixel binning. The rest of the three cameras are the same. So there is an 8 Megapixel ultrawide camera, a 2 Megapixel macro camera, and a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. On the front, while G10 has an 8 Megapixel camera, Moto G30 gets a 13 Megapixel sensor.
As mentioned in the beginning, the price for the Moto G10 starts at €149, whereas that of the G30 at €179.
