“Moto G7 and Moto G7 Plus are touted to be more premium than its G series predecessors, and feature rather peculiar 18.9:9 aspect ratio display”
Motorola India, the Lenovo-owned subsidiary, has tweeted a teaser to announce a competition for the launch of the Moto G7 series of smartphones in India. While we still do not have a date for the Moto G7 launch in India, the teaser hints that a launch date shall be announced soon. The smartphones were announced last month in Brazil, prior to being rolled out in other markets across the world.
The Moto G7 series comprises the G7, G7 Plus, G7 Power and G7 Play. While the teaser has only mentioned the Moto G7, it remains to be seen which of the entire Moto G7 portfolio is launched in India. Of course, the Moto G7 Power has already been launched in India, priced at Rs 13,999. And the teaser on Twitter shows the smartphone will have a waterdrop notch, which just leaves the G7 and G7 Plus as the ‘Play’ model has a wider notch.
The Moto G7 is certain to be launched in India, with the teaser shared today showing the dual-camera setup at the rear and the waterdrop notch on the display. It gets a 6.24-inch full HD+ display, with a rather peculiar 18.9:9 aspect ratio. It features the same Snapdragon 632 processor as the G7 Play and Power, but runs on 4GB RAM and 64GB native storage. The dual-rear camera includes a 12MP, f/1.8 primary module, and a 5MP, f/2.2 secondary module. The waterdrop notch at the front includes an 8MP, f/2.2 unit like its less-expensive brethren, and a 3,000mAh battery powers the entire unit. It also gets Corning’s 3D Gorilla Glass at the rear to add to its build quality.
The Moto G7 Plus, which could also be launched in India, has the Snapdragon 636 SoC, along with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. It gets the same display as the standard Moto G7, while the front facade also gets Dolby Audio-certified stereo speakers. The dual-camera setup at the rear includes a 16MP, f/1.7 primary unit, paired with a 5MP, f/2.2 secondary unit and optical stabilisation. The front camera is also upgraded to a 12MP, f/2.0 unit. The same, 3,000mAh battery powers the entire setup.
While the Moto G has always been very popular in India, it remains to be seen how the new, more premium G series fares against highly attractive propositions by the likes of Xiaomi, Realme and others.
