Moto G7 shows up at Verizon ahead of official announcement

Moto G7

Because no two consumers are alike, smartphone needs are also very different.

Lenovo-owned Motorola has officially taken the wraps off the Moto G7 series lineup comprising the Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power.

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. I'll have to try the Moto G7's camera to see if it's any better. It also features a 16MP dual camera system with optical image stabilization for improved photography. Plus, new camera software and AI helps you shoot like a pro with unbelievable features like Smart Composition and Auto-Smile capture. The product description says the Moto G7 offers " elegant design, premium performance" and " all day battery life". The 19:9, 6.2-inch display also runs at Full HD+ (2270x1080, for those keeping track) making it the nicest G7 model to actually look at.

The Moto G7 family is available in Brazilian and Mexican markets as of now and will soon roll to out Europe, Australia and other parts of Latin America. It's not coming to the United States at all.

The Moto G7's main 12MP lens is for everyday photo taking, with the 5MP lens acting as a "depth sensor" for portrait shots and getting that blurry background effect. "Videos and images come to life on its u-design, 6.2" Max Vision Full HD+ display. It's launching in Brazil and Mexico today, it'll launch in Europe in mid-February, and it'll cost around £269 if you're picking one up in the UK. It will roll out over the coming month in many countries in Asia Pacific, Latin America and North America with a starting MSRP $299 Dollars.

Motorola is releasing three versions of the Moto G7 this year: the G7, the G7 Power, and the G7 Play. The Moto G7 Play will run $199.

The Moto G7 Power packs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 632 processor, which promises 50 percent faster performance than the Snapdragon 450 chip in the Moto G6. From left to right we have the G7 Play, the G7 Power, and the standard G7. For pricing, the Moto G7 Plus will have a $300 Euro price tag.

I know that's not as good as the really old cellphones that would last a month on one battery, but it's a lot better than most smartphones we have these days. Huge performance. Don't let its small size fool you.

Under the hood, you'll find a Snapdragon 632 processor and this device also includes that turbocharging technology. The Moto G7 starts at 1,599 Brazilian Real (R$) (about ₹30,000) while the Moto G7 Plus, G7 Power and G7 Play start at R$1,899 (about ₹36,500), R$1,399 (about ₹27,000) and R$999 (about ₹20,000) respectively. In the camera department it comes with 12-megapixel dual-rear cameras.

The Moto G7 comes with a headphone jack, which is quickly becoming extinct on higher-end smartphones.

Anyway, the Power splits the difference between the vanilla G7 and the Play. According to Motorola, you can use the same cable to share power with a friend who is running low on juice. Newly redesigned One Button Nav replaces navigation buttons with one simple on-screen bar.

All phones are certainly mid-range, but do feature that newish-school design with a bigger and notched display that stretches to the corners. The G7 Power also lacks the IP54 water resistance the regular G7 has, but most users likely won't mind too much.
