With an Indian launch expected to be made a month from now, Motorola has officially unveiled its latest G-series smartphone at an event in Brazil, as we expected. The new range of Moto G smartphones includes the Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, Moto G7 Power and Moto G7 Play, all of which come with slimmer bezels, different notch styles, better-charging technologies, Android Pie and a bare minimum of a Snapdragon 632 processor instead of the Snapdragon 4XX-series in its predecessors.
To start things off, the Moto G7 is the standard variant of the latest G-series. It features a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display with a tear-drop style notch and a resolution of 2270×1080 pixels. The device equips a curved glass back with the iconic Motorola logo and the circular camera ring at the top half. Also worth mentioning is that the Moto G7 is splash resistant with its P2i water-repellent nano coating.
The Moto G7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It’s fuelled by a 3000mAh capacity battery with support for 15W TurboPower charming that Motorola says will get you 9 hours of phone usage in 15 minutes.
For optics, the Moto G7 features a dual camera setup at the back with a 12MP primary sensor and 5MP lens for depth sensing. There’s a standard 8MP front facing camera for selfies and video conferencing.
The Moto G7 will be available for an asking price of €250 (approx. Rs 20,200).
Moto G7 Plus
Like its predecessors, the Moto G7 has a more powerful variant in the Moto G7 Plus which comes running the more enhanced Snapdragon 636 under-the-hood with the same configuration of 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage. While the battery capacity remains the same at 3,000mAh, the Moto G7 Plus offers users the capability of 27W TurboPower charging, right out of the box, providing you with 11 hours of usage in 15 minutes of charging.
The Moto G7 Plus comes with the same 6.2-inch Full HD+ display with a tear-drop style notch and a resolution of 2270×1080 pixels. It features the same glass-backed body as the Moto G7 and the device comes in Blue and Red colours. Additionally, the Moto G7 Plus comes with dual stereo speakers and support for Dolby Audio.
For the camera, the Moto G7 Plus equips a 16MP (f/1.7) primary camera with a 5MP depth sensor. The difference comes in the form of 12MP front facing camera, making the G7 Plus the best out of the four smartphones for camera purposes.
The Moto G7 Plus is priced at €300 (approx. Rs 24,250).
Moto G7 Power
Moto G7 Power is for anyone wishing to buy the Moto G7 but needs a larger battery to get with for the course of their regular day. Primarily, the G7 Power incorporates a similar sized 6.2-inch screen with a wider notch and an HD+ display instead of FullHD and has a resolution of 1520×720 pixels.
However, it’s powered by the same Snapdragon 632 chipset which is present on the standard Moto G7 but with a lower 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It’s the battery that shines in the G7 Power as it offers a 5,000mAh power unit to deliver up to 60 hours of usage on a single charge. The phone comes with a 15W TurboPower charger but can be charged by a QuickCharge 4.0 compatible charger for faster charging.
The G7 Power also features a single primary camera which is a 12MP (f/2.0, 1.25µm) lens and there’s an 8MP selfie camera on the front.
The Moto G7 Power will be available for €210 (approx. Rs 16,900).
Moto G7 Play
The most affordable of the four is Motorola’s Moto G7 Play which offers a compact 5.7-inch HD+ screen with a resolution of 1512 x 720 pixels and a standard wide notch up top. The Play features the same 3,000mAh battery as the G7 but because of a lower resolution screen, it’ll be able to last longer. It comes with 10W charger out of the box.
In terms of performance, the G7 Play is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset but with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. All of this is housed inside a polycarbonate case instead of glass. As for optics, the G7 Play features a 13MP primary and an 8MP selfie cameras.
The Moto G7 Play will be available for purchase for €150 (approx. Rs 12,100).
Coming to the software on all four Moto G7 phones, the devices run on Android 9 Pie out of the box with a near-to-stock experience. There are software buttons at the bottom which has been replaced with a single bar at the bottom which acts as a base for navigation purposes. It also comes with Motorola’s own popular suite of add-ons including always on display, gestures for flashlight and camera.
