Motorola has finally unveiled the new Moto G7 series during an event that took place in Brazil on Thursday and, judging by the specs, there's one for every taste and fit for every wallet. Squeezing three days of use out of a phone required some compromises, though: the Power's 6.2-inch screen is just as big as the G7's but it runs at 1520×720, so individual pixels will be more noticeable when you get really close to the display. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset and has 3GB of RAM along with 32GB of internal storage. It is worth noting that these Motorola smartphones are not a part of the Android One program, so fast updates might not be a certainty. The device has a dual camera setup at the back with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor.
The Moto G7 Plus is the most expensive and feature-packed of the four phones. There's a 3,000-mAh battery onboard - about average for this price range, and matching the battery inside the $349 Nokia 7.1. Rs 21,360), which does seem very steep compared to the competition. It's not the sort of "Plus" phone you see with other brands. Unlike the other three models, the Moto G7 Play gets a basic 10W charger and the device is rated to provide up to 40 hours of battery life with a full charge. At its core is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC, paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card by up to 128GB.
For imaging, it gets a 13MP f/2.0 main camera and an 8MP f/2.2 selfie shooter. The idea was the deliver capable smartphones with some premium-a-like features at affordable prices. The 3,000mAh battery matches the more upscale models, but charges at only 5W.
Three out of four of the Moto G7 handsets are fueled by the same processor: the Snapdragon 632. The Plus also has a 16-megapixel rear camera with the ability to capture video in 4K. The front camera will also have a higher spec 16MP sensor.
The Moto G7 Power is nearly certainly the cheapest phone around with a 5,000mAh battery; you won't find other widely-available phones packing that much juice below flagship tier, and that really is the key selling point.
The new family consists of the G7 Play, the G7 Power, G7 Plus, and the G7.
"Powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset and supported by 4GB RAM, the Moto G7 Plus sports a gorgeous 6.2" Max Vision Full HD+ display and a pair of stereo speakers tuned by Dolby Audio. In short, the Moto G7 Power's camera is the more capable - at least on paper. And while the Power and Play variants get iPhone-aping wide cutouts for the front facing camera and earpiece, the standard G7 receives the teardrop treatment, similar to the OnePlus 6T. Around back there's a 12MP camera with LED flash and a fingerprint reader below it.
Alongside the standard G7, the leak also shows that Motorola could reveal a cheaper device called the G7 Power and much larger phone named the G7 Plus.
In terms of software, the Moto G7 Power packs Motorola's typical lightweight interface layered over Android, including the optional bottom bar that replaces the navigational soft buttons. They are available in Brazil and Mexico today and are coming to Europe from the mid-February. It also handles syncing and fast-charging using the TurboPower wall plug included in the box which promises nine hours of battery life from a quick 15-minute charge.
