Motorola has launched a couple of mid-range G-series – meet the Moto G10 and G30. They are the start of a new generation, one that focuses on a solid camera experience and long battery life.

Both phones are quite similar, except the G30 acts as a sort of “plus” model with some hardware upgrades. The G10 and G30 will launch in select European countries in the coming weeks.

The two handset features 6.5-inch IPS LCDs with 720 x 1,600 px resolution. The Moto G30 stands out with 90Hz refresh rate. Also, it has a 13MP selfie camera living in a notch.

The quad camera on the back features a 64MP main senspr with Quad Pixel tech. Post binning, the sensor effectively has 1.4 µm pixels and 16MP resolution, which combined with the bright f/1.7 aperture lays the groundwork for the Night Vision mode.

The main cam is joined by an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera (118º). There’s no telephoto camera, instead the high resolution main sensor takes on zooming duties. Two additional cameras are on board, a 2MP macro cam and a 2MP depth sensor (used for Cutout, Spot color and, of course, portrait shots). Video recording is limited to 1080p @ 60 fps.

And that’s a limit of the chipset as the G30 is powered by a Snapdragon 662. It has eight Kryo 260 CPU cores (four based on A73, four on A53), plus an Adreno 610 GPU. It runs Android 11 with a few Motorola-developed features added on top.

The phone comes with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. There are single and dual-SIM versions and while both have microSD slots, the dual-SIM version uses a hybrid slot design, which limits it to one SIM if you have a microSD in there.

This is a 4G phone (Cat. 4), it also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and a variety of satellite positioning systems. Wired connectivity includes USB-C (wired for 2.0 speeds) and a 3.5mm headphone jack. An FM radio receiver is available as well.

The 5,000 mAh battery is good for over 2 days of usage, according to Motorola’s own testing, and can be charged back up quickly at 20W.
