Motorola has chosen to copy Apple's iPhone X design with their new phone.
The Motorola P30 has a 6.2 inch display, with a notch at the top, chin at the bottom and round corners. The notch is similar to the iPhone X in shape and size, and there's an edge-to-edge screen. The only thing that makes it different is the small chin at the bottom.
On the rear side, there's a dual-camera in a vertical layout (same as the iPhone's), and a Motorola logo with a fingerprint sensor. The phone is available in Silver (identical to the X's) and a colourful metallic, clearly a copy of Huawei's P20.
What's even more ridiculous is that the phone's have been marketed with very similar wallpapers to what the iPhone X has.
The P30 is only around in China for now, as a mid-range device, to make people think they've got something similar to the extremely fast X. It has a Snapdragon 636 processor, 6GB of RAM, 3,000 mAh battery and 128GB of storage, and runs Android obviously. The front camera is 12MP whilst the rear ones are 5MP and 16 mega-pixel. There's no face recognition system like the iPhone X has.
This (nearly exact) clone comes after many other Android phone makers have been copying Apple, including OnePlus, Huawei, LG and Asus. It seems they can't think of unique designs for their phones.
One thing, found by The Verge, that was very funny, was that when doing a Google Image search based around the Motorola P30, Google thinks it's an iPhone X!
Apple is soon to introduce three new iPhone X models, two OLED and one LCD version.
Author's opinion: The fact that companies are copying Apple is bad, but when one literally clones their flagship phone, that's terrible. The notch may be the way forward to all-screen phones, but these companies could at least think of ways to make their phone's different. We're all unsure whether Apple will take Motorola to court, yet.
