Commenting on the similarity between the Motorola P30 and the iPhone X, technology blogger Marques Brownlee called it the "most shameless rip yet". The phone also highlights a dual rear camera setup, face unlock and some AI smarts, among other things.

What do you think about the design of Motorola P30?

The Motorola P30 (oddly without the "Moto") is finally official and this appears to be a Chinese market only device.

It's not identical to the iPhone X, though. Here's everything you need to know about the P30. For selfies, the Motorola P30 offers a single 12MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.

For now, there is no word regarding the global release of this Motorola smartphone. As there is a notch at the top of the display, it has an aspect ratio of 19:9.

Noted Céline Dion impersonator Ariana Grande is at it again
In fact, before the singing session was through, Grande tried her hand at Dion's 1989 hit "It's All Coming Back To Me Now". Plus, the two performed " Suddenly Seymour " from Little Shop of Horrors! She orders a latte - a grande , natch.

This is a beautiful-looking phone featuring a 6.2-inch display, complete with an iPhone X-like notch and dual rear camera on the back. The p2i-rated water-repellent coating makes the device splash proof. The device has an aluminium frame and glass on both the front and back. The phone also comes in Apple's Black and White color schemes, with an additional "Aurora" color scheme which literally looks like the Huawei P20 Pro's "Twilight" paint job got rotated a 180 degrees (here's a comparison). The P30 also supports Dolby Atmos sound. The smartphone runs ZUI 4.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo, which is essentially the same UI seen on the Lenovo Z5.

On Thursday, Lenovo posted an operating profit for the first quarter - after making a loss the previous year.

Just a day after the Motorola P30 leaked in a few images, the handset has been made officially official. It has been priced starting at CNY 2,099 (approx Rs 21,300) while the top end model will cost CNY 2,499 (approx Rs 25,400).

The P30 is set for a September 15 launch (a month from now), but will launch in China before even preparing for a worldwide launch... which to me would be a rather bold idea, given that Apple's legal team will be waiting to pounce.
