Moto G7 (stylized by Motorola as moto g7)[1] is a series of Android smartphones developed by Motorola Mobility, a subsidiary of Lenovo; it is the seventh generation of the Moto G family and was first released on 7 February 2019. As with the last generations which introduced the Plus and Play variants, this series has introduced the Power variant as well. There are 4 variants in the seventh series.

Release[edit]

The G7 was announced on February 7, 2019;[2] it was released on the same day in the Brazil and Mexico markets.[3] It was due to be released in the European market on March 1, 2019 however this was delayed until the 15th for unknown reasons. It is due to be released in North America, Australia and Asia after Europe, however no dates have been announced.

The G7 Plus will not be available in the United States.[2][3]

Variants[edit]

G7[edit]

The G7 is the well rounded phone in this generation, it carries some of the flagship features of the Plus, while also being on par with the budget G7 Play on other departments. It features a single small notch in the top of the display for the front facing camera, this does mean it doesn't carry a front facing flash like the G6 did. In terms of performance it boasts a 50% increase in processing speeds from the G6.

G7 Play[edit]

The G7 Play is the cheapest variant of this generation. It has the widest notch in comparison with the other variants, and this may mean it is the only one with front facing flash (unconfirmed). Moto boasts that it has a 60% performance increase compared to last generation. Also in last generation its selling feature was the largest battery capacity with 4000 mAh, however this has been reduced to 3000 mAh.

G7 Plus[edit]

The Plus has not seen many changes from the previous generation. The largest would be the notch and the lack of a front facing camera LED flash. It can now also charge at 27W instead of 15W using the TurboPower Charger, however it does have a reduced battery capacity of 3000 mAh instead of 3200 mAh.

G7 Power[edit]

Last generation the G6 Play was the model with a large battery and less powerful specifications, however this generation the new variant has taken this role. All the other three models have a 3000 mAh battery, the Power has a 5000 mAh. For the rest of its specifications it falls somewhere between the G7 Play and G7.

Specifications[edit]

Some specifications such as wireless technologies and storage will vary between regions.

Main changes from the G6[edit]

Previously only the Play had its fingerprint scanner on the rear and the rest on the front. Due to the larger screen, the fingerprint scanner is now located on the rear of all the phones. Additionally, all G7 variants now have a cutout, or notch, at the top of the screen.
