Looking at the latest Motorola Moto G Series smartphones, it’s hard to see why an American, European or Indian consumer would buy a Moto G when there are superior mid-range options. Motorola has lost much of its market share due to increased competition in these regions, but the company still performs exceptionally well in Latin American countries like Brazil, where their amount of budget Moto E and Moto G units in the middle range offer a unique experience at different price points. In 2019, we expect to see 4 new Moto G smartphones: the Motorola Moto G7, the Motorola Moto G7 Plus, the Motorola Moto G7 Power and the Motorola Moto G7 Play.
We have received a brief glimpse of the Moto G7 Power and some of its specifications, but the Moto G7 Play has also recently been online. There are many pictures on the Moto G7 Play in the FCC archive, but we also have a few tricky specifications for us to better detail the device before launch. This is what we know so far about the Motorola Moto G7 Play.
According to the pictures sent to FCC, the device will be in two colors: Black and Silverish-Blue color (I I’m not sure about the exact marketing name here.) On the back there is a single camera lens and an LED flash. Below the camera’s clipboard is a fingerprint scanner. The device appears to be slightly on the edges to make it easier to hold. The unit measures approximately 1
45mm with 70mm.
Next, here are some photographs showing the rest of the Motorola Moto G7 Play. On the front we can see that there is a fairly large screen that holds the only forward facing camera, an LED flash and a speaker. It’s hard to tell the exact size of the screen because the screen is not turned on in any of the pictures, but there is a seemingly large bottom case that reduces the relationship between the screen and the body. At the bottom you will find the USB Type-C port and a microphone. At the top you will find 3.5 mm headphone jack. To the left you will find the SIM card slot (either dual SIM or single SIM + microSD slot). To the right you will find the volume and power buttons.
The FCC archive also reveals some of the device’s specifications. One of the images shows that the Moto G7 Play will contain the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 mobile platform, while another reveals the Moto G7 Play’s (2.820mAh) (minimum) / 3000mAh (typical) battery capacity. Moto G7 Play’s 14nm SoC is a significant upgrade of the Moto G6 Play’s 28nm SoC (Qualcomm Snapdragon 430). However, the battery capacity is a significant downgrade from the Moto G6 Plays 4000mAh battery. It seems like you want a Moto G7 with a large battery, you have to choose the Moto G7 Power.
The FCC archive reveals two SKUs for Brazil and Latin America and one for the rest of the world. There is not much to say here because you need to verify if the LTE tapes listed below are compatible with your mobile operator’s network.
According to our own source, the device has the code name “channel”. The list of basic hardware and software specifications that we received may not reflect the device’s final configurations because the information we build is based on early development and may not be as -Data as the sealed information provided to the FCC. The specifications we now seem to be almost identical to the Moto G6 Play, so we will update you if things change.
Now predict that you’ll see 2/3 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of storage, a 5.69 -inch HD + display (the schematic shows a pretty large bottom bracket), a 12MP f / 2.0 reverse camera, one 8MP f / 2.2 forward facing camera and Android 9 Pie. Camera features so far include support for the Motorola Camera app’s pro mode, selective coloring, time delay, and a new single rear bokeh mode.
We have a lot more information to share as we approach the device launch. Because the entire Motorola Moto G7 series has already gone through the FCC, we do not think we are so far away from the launch date. The Moto G7 Play will be the lowest model in the new Moto G7 series, so it should be a decent smartphone for those looking for a mid-range device on a budget.
