The Moto E30 is out in Europe and it only cost about €100

Moto E40

Motorola has launched Moto E30 in Europe, its latest budget smartphone after having introduced the Moto E40 last month. The new Moto E30 share almost the same specs with the E40, however, there are some potential changes that make them differs.

Firstly, the new smartphone does not run the complete package Android OS but instead opted for the half-baked Android 11 Go Edition that is made for low-end devices. Furthermore, the Moto E30 comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which are quit lesser than what you will find on the E40.

However, the processor that powered the phones still remain the same - we are talking about the Unisoc T700 octa-core chipset. If the 32GB storage is quite unsatisfactory to you, there is a microSD slot where you can slip in your microSD card to expand the storage. It is this same slot that will accommodate your two SIM cards, so you can insert them all at once.

The Moto E30 has the same display as the E40. At the front you will find a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen that refreshes at 90Hz, featuring an HD+ resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio. There is no screen protector so you might want to put that in mind.

Moving on, at the rear is a triple camera configuration - a 48MP main shooter with an f/1.8 aperture sitting alongside with a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro lens. A single LED flash is placed beside these cameras for low-light shots. In case you are wondering, the selfie camera is located above the display inside the punch-hole and it has an 8MP sensor. With these cameras, users can only record Full HD (1080p) videos.

In terms of connectivity, the Moto E30 does not support 5G but instead have Dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5, WiFi, GPS/GLONASS/Galileo, and USB Type-C. It has a fingerprint sensor mounted to back and a 3.5mm audio jack. The whole device is water-repellent, while it draw its power from a 5000mAh battery. The battery can be quickly charged using the 10W charger supplied in the box.

The device was found listed on the firm's Slovakia webpage without any information pertaining to its availability and pricing. However, a third-party store called Aldi, which is also located in Europe, listed the phone for €100 (US$116) on its website, although it's unavailable to purchase.

Either way, we expect it to officially arrive to the European market in the next coming days. You can pick one in either Blue or Gray color when it starts selling.
