Moto G30 and Moto G10 Power were launched in India on Tuesday as the two new smartphones by Motorola. The Moto G30 debuted in Europe in February alongside the Moto G10. However, the Moto G10 Power is projected as a new model by the company, though it shares the same list of specifications that comes with the original Moto G10 — except a bigger battery. Both Motorola phones come with a waterdrop-style display notch and run on Android 11 with a near stock interface. There is also a preloaded, proprietary ThinkShield technology that is touted to bring four-layer security to the new models.
Moto G30 price in India has been set at Rs. 10,999 for the lone 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. The phone comes in Dark Pearl and Pastel Sky colours. The Moto G10 Power, on the other hand, carries a price tag of Rs. 9,999 for the single 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model. It features Aurora Grey and Breeze Blue colour options.
