Motorola today announced its widely anticipated Moto G7 lineup at an event in Brasil. The company announced three smartphones this year – the Moto G7, the Moto G7 Play and the Moto G7 Power.
A fourth more-capable version of the phone is also expected to be announced for international markets but there isn’t any news on that yet.
While the Lenovo-owned company has revealed prices for any of the three smartphones on their website yet, a report by The Verge states that the regular Moto G7 is priced the highest among the three phones with a price tag of $299. The Moto G7 Power and the Moto G7 Play, on the other hand, are priced starting at $249 and $199 respectively.

The Moto G7 is the most powerful of the three smartphones in the current G7 lineup and the phone features a 6.2-inch LTPS LCD Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2270 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The G7 also gets the smaller notch among the three, with Motorola adopting a waterdrop notch style rather than a wider bathtub styled notch.
Inside, the G7 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chip along with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The phone also supports storage expansion up to 128 GB via a microSD card.
For optics, the G7 gets a dual-camera setup at the back with a 12 MP primary camera and a 5 MP depth sensor with an LED flash. There’s also an 8 MP camera on the front for selfies and video calls.
The phone runs on Android Pie 9.0, though there isn’t any mention of Android One, and also get a 3,000 mAh battery along with a 15 W TurboPower charger out of the box.
Once the phone begins hitting stores, the Moto G7 will be up for grabs in two colours, Ceramic Black and Clear White.
Moto G7 Power
The Moto G7 Power, as the name suggests, it catered to the power user. The phone gets the same 6.2-inch LTPS LCD display but with a resolution of 1570 x 720 pixels. The design has also been altered a little bit on the front, with the G7 Power featuring a wider notch than that on the G7.
Inside, we have the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chip powering the phone but the RAM has been reduced to 3 GB and the storage down to 32 GB. You do have the option of expanding storage up to 512 GB though via a micro SD card.
On the camera front, the G7 Power gets a single rear camera setup comprising of a 12 MP f/2.0 lens along with an LED flash. On the front, there’s the same 8 MP camera as on the G7.
The highlight of the G7 Power though is its beefy 5,000 mAh battery which again can be juiced up fairly quickly courtesy of the 15 W TurboPower charger supplied in the box. The software remains the same as well.
The Moto G7 Power will be available in a single Marine Blue shade.
Moto G7 Play
The G7 Play is Motorola’s entry-level G-Series phone for this year. The G7 Play gets a smaller 5.7-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1512 x 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. The Play version also features an obnoxious looking notch, the largest among the three phones.
Inside though, the G7 Play gets the same Snapdragon 632 SoC along with a paltry 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage with an option to expand up to 128 GB via a micro SD card.
For cameras, the G7 Play has a single 13 MP f/2.0 camera on the back along with an LED flash and an 8 MP camera on the front for selfies. The phone is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and comes in two colours – Deep indigo and Starry Black
