Motorola just announced the P30 which happens to be the company’s first smartphone to get notch display. The company announced the P30 along with the Moto Z3 and Moto E5 Plus at an event in China. However the Moto Z3 and Moto E5 Plus have already been announced outside of China, it’s the P30, highlight of the show.

The Moto P30’s design looks quite inspired by the iPhone X. It has pretty wide notch on the front and a vertical dual rear camera setup on the ceramic back. The device sports a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a Snapdragon 636 Octa-Core chipset along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage variant.

The P30 also houses Face Unlock along with a fingerprint sensor on the back in the iconic Moto logo. The P30 also gets a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top and curved edges all around. It runs on Android 8.1 powered by Google’s Android one project.

Motorola said that the P30 comes with nano coating that makes it water resistant. There’s also an AI-powered graphics acceleration for smoother gaming performance.
