Motorola Moto X30 Pro is one of the many high-end smartphones released by the company this year. There is so much hype about this phone as it is the world’s first smartphone to have a 200MP camera sensor on it. The phone also offers a high-resolution selfie camera, which is not on any other smartphone. Performance-wise, it has the best chipset from Qualcomm to date. Furthermore, it has a decent battery backup and the charging system provided on the phone is one of the fastest available on a smartphone.

Design and display
Motorola Moto X30 Pro has a pleasing and elegant design. Yet, there is no fancy work; it has a plain and simple design, making it look decent. The phone comes with a glass front as well as a glass back build. The phone comes with curved edges on either side while features a squarish camera panel that houses three camera sensors and an LED flash. On the centre of the panel, there is the famous batwing logo of the company and on the bottom is the Motorola branding.
The phone weighs around 198.50 grams and measures 8.40 mm in thickness. It is available in black and white colour options.
On the front is a 6.70-inch OLED display. Surprisingly, it only offers a 1,080*2,400 pixels resolution, which is significantly low for high-ranged smartphones. On the other hand, it has HDR10+ features, which should enhance the viewing experience by offering better and sharper media. Likewise, the display supports a whooping 144Hz refresh rate and an impressive touch sampling rate of 1500Hz. These combinations are probably the highest on a smartphone. Also, the phone can achieve a peak brightness of up to 1250 nits.
Cameras are definitely the major talking point of Motorola Moto X30 Pro. It is the first smartphone to have a 200MP camera sensor. The primary 200MP camera on the back is accompanied by another high-resolution 50MP ultrawide camera with a FOV of 117 degrees and a 12MP telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom. The primary camera has both PDAF and OIS features for quick and stable shots.
Meanwhile, on the front is another high-resolution 60MP selfie sensor with an HDR feature.
The higher-resolution sensors on the phone allow it to capture videos in higher resolutions. The primary camera can record up to 8K videos at 30fps and even the front camera can record videos in 4K resolution at up to 30fps.
Performance and storage
A flagship phone means only the best performance can be expected from Motorola Moto X30 Pro. The phone runs on Motorola’s own MYUI 4.0 based on Android 12. The phone should get at least three years of Android updates and at least four years of security patch updates. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (4nm) chipset, the most powerful chip from the reputed Qualcomm to date. The graphics on the phone are handled by Adreno 730.
For storage, Motorola Moto X30 Pro comes with 8GB RAM as the basic, coupled with 128GB of internal storage. The phone is also available with 12GB RAM and either 256GB or 512GB of internal storage. There is no option to further expand the storage with an external card as the phone supports none.
Battery life, connectivity and others
Motorola Moto X30 Pro has a 4,610mAh, li-po, non-removable battery backup. The battery gets powered by a 125W fast charger. With this ultra-fast charger on the board, the battery on the phone gets fully charged in just 19 minutes and even seven minutes of charging can get up to 50 per cent of power. The phone also supports 50W fast wireless charging.
There is a dedicated slot for two sims and the phone can support up to 5G networks. Similarly, the phone also supports dual-band wifi, NFC and GPS. Bluetooth 5.2 on the phone can be used for wireless pairing with other devices while using a USB Type-C cable for charging and wired connectivity. The phone has stereo speakers for audio, but there is no 3.5mm headphone jack.
Motorola Moto X30 Pro is priced at EUR 550 for the base 8/128GB. When the phone makes its way to Nepal, one can expect a starting price of Rs 80,000.
