  • Leaked renders show off Lenovo and Motorola’s upcoming P30 smartphone.
  • The Motorola P30 is rumored to launch on August 15 in China.
  • It will also look exactly like an iPhone X.

Motorola is expected to launch a new smartphone lineup in China this week, and it’s pretty clear where the company got its design inspiration. The upcoming Motorola P30, according to renders obtained by AndroidPure, is going to be one of the most shameless iPhone X ripoffs of the year.

If I learned one thing from grade school, it was that copying is not okay. That apparently doesn’t apply to Lenovo and Motorola.

Just look at this thing. The vertically stacked cameras, the big ol’ notch, the glass back, the aluminum sides, the wallpaper, and even the clock on the lock screen look just like the iPhone X. It’s one thing to take a few design elements from Apple’s flagship, but this is going overboard. This is Xiaomi Mi 8-level copying.



Okay, okay, there are some differences between the two phones. The P30 has a larger chin with a Motorola logo, and there’s a fingerprint sensor on the back. Aside from that, this is an iPhone running Android. Not cool, Motorola.

It’s not a new idea. Many features have been written on the subject of stagnation in the smartphone market — plenty from this website alone. Photos are getting sharper, displays are getting brighter, and batteries …

The Motorola P30 is rumored to come with a 6.2-inch 19:9 aspect ratio display, 6GB of RAM, either 64 or 128GB of internal storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. It’ll also reportedly come with 16 and 5MP rear cameras, while the front may feature a 12MP sensor. There will also be a Motorola P30 Note and P30 Play announced at the same time, but details on those phones are scarce at the moment.

According to leaked product listings, the Motorola P30 should go on sale for around RMB 1,999 (~$285). There’s a chance the company could launch the phones on Wednesday, August 15, so we don’t have long to wait for more details on availability and other specs.
