Motorola Moto G7, G7 Plus and G7 Power: All you need to know

Very recently, pictures of the yet-to-launch Moto G7 and G7 Plus leaked online and now we’ve good reasons to believe that they’re genuine after corroborating with the leaked spec-sheet that’s surfaced on the web.

Motorola is expected to jump on the big screen bandwagon with their upcoming flagship Moto G7 duo that, reportedly (via howtotechnaija), will sport a mega 6.4″ FHD+ display with a water-drop notch on the Plus variant, following the current trend. It will, in all likeliness, be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor.

The leaked spec-sheet mentions the phone will house 4GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage that can be expanded to a maximum of 256GB using a micro SD card, but this should be the base model.

It is also likely to run on Android Pie 9.0 OS out of the box and support dual sim. Coming to the camera, the Moto G7 and G7 Plus are expected to house dual rear cameras (16MP and 5 MP) and a singular front-facing camera (12MP) for taking selfies and video calling. The 3500mAh battery is expected on the Plus variant while the base model should keep the 3000mAh unit from the previous model.

Overall, the new offering from Motorola may offer its loyalists another one of the best phones in the budget range that’s bang for buck, but first-time buyers may refrain from purchasing because it may not offer anything new. However, only time will tell if Motorola does indeed have nothing new to offer or whether it springs a pleasant surprise on us!

Price and availability

There is no information available at this moment regarding when the Moto G7 will launch, but details of where it will launch have emerged through the FCC and thanks to folks at 91mobiles, we also have them with us.

Moto-G7-2

In the U.S., buyers of the Moto G7 will pick from a 3/32GB or 3/64GB configuration carrying model number XT1962-1 and again, no NFC support. On the contrary, buyers of model XT1962-5 (Australia, Europe, Japan, and New Zealand) will get NFC support alongside a dual-SIM variant, but only the 3/32GB configuration will be available.

Motorola is big in Latin America (Brazil) and its a surprise that this market is only getting one memory option – 3/64GB – with model number XT1962-4. Even more interesting is that Asia Pacific, India, and emerging markets will get the high-end 4/64GB option with model number XT1962-6, but we won’t be surprised if the base model accompanies it too. And no, none of these two supports NFC.

At the moment, we don’t know the price and release date details but stay tuned for more info.

Moto G7 Power

Besides the Moto G7, G7 Plus, and G7 Play, Motorola is also lining up a Power variant. Like other Power models from the recent past, the Moto G7 Power will be modest on performance specs, but loaded in terms of battery capacity, with a massive 5000mAh unit on the cards. The G7 Power has been spotted on the FCC with model numbers XT1955-1, XT1955-2, XT1955-4, and XT1955-7, as shown below.
