Would you be interested in the Moto P30 if it were made available outside of China?

Motorola has launched a new phone in China, and it pretty much looks like an Apple iPhone X but with a Huawei P20 Pro paint job.

Unveiled just hours after press renders of the smartphone appeared online, the Motorola P30 - as expected - bears more than just a passing resemblance to Apple's iPhone X. The new device will hope to give Motorola's sales a kickstart in China, an area that it has not sold huge numbers in despite being a local company.

In terms of specifications, we are looking at a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels, and 19:9 aspect ratio. If you want it to be more like the iPhone, you can get it in black or white; if you fancy the Huawei P20, you can get it in the aforementioned Aurora color.

Enter Moto P30, a phone for the Chinese market that looks exactly like the iPhone X, save for a slightly thicker lower bezel donning the "motorola" logo.

The Motorola P30 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset. In addition to these devices, the company also took the wraps off the recently rumored Motorola P30, which surfaced in leaks and speculations recently.

The device comes in 64GB and 128GB storage options and there is also a MicroSD card slot for further expansion of up to 256GB. It also has 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, a fingerprint sensor - embedded in the logo on the rear - and facial recognition.

Camera-wise, the handset's iPhone-esque setup comprises of a 16MP and 5MP sensors, and there's a 12MP snapper around the front of the smartphone. The selfie camera uses a 12-megapixel sensor with 1.25 micron pixel size f/2.0 aperture.

The P30 has a USB-C port for charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Available with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage, the latest Motorola smartphone comes with Android 8.1 Oreo, and the OEM manufacturer's own user interface has been replaced by ZUI 4.0.
