Motorola's Moto G7 Family is Here

Moto G7 Power

Moto G7 Power

This device is only slightly different from its closest brethren.

The Moto G7 might be a "mid-range" phone running on mid-range hardware, but it comes with the same version of Android as every other high-end Android device - Android 9.

The Marine Blue finish on the Moto G7 Power gives the phone a premium look and feel.

The Moto G7 Plus is the most powerful of the lot, boasting a Snapdragon 636 SoC.

That suggests who Motorola's target audience is: budget-conscious consumers looking for a phone that will last longer between charging sessions -and that's not a bad pitch to customers at any price tier.

For your money, you get Snapdragon 632 processor, 5.7-inch Max Vision display and 13-megapixel rear camera. It goes without saying that it runs stock Android 9 Pie. A 3000mAh battery matches the Plus, although the G7 Power trumps it in that area. You'll be able to buy the phones from that day. Specific release dates in these markets are unknown, other than we can expect them sometime in the spring.

Moto G7 and Moto G7 Plus smartphones get a 6.24-inch FHD+ Max Vision display with 1080X2270 pixels of resolution.

The Moto G7 Power will launch at T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile.

The display is crisp enough and large for such a low resolution, but be forewarned: the Moto G7 Power has a notch, and it's noticeable.

Motorola is also using Gorilla Glass on the front and back of the G7 and G7 Plus, which should improve durability. The size of the notch varies by model-the Moto G7 has a teardrop notch, similar to the Essential Phone, while the other two handsets have increasingly wider notches. All the G7 devices have a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the device, a change from previous Moto G ranges which varied their location.

Thai officials previously said a trial could be lengthy, depending on how many witnesses are called by each side. The Bangkok court has set an April 22 date for its next hearing.

To solve any battery life qualms, Motorola has crammed a mammoth 5,000mAh battery cell inside the handset.

We did get to compare the rest of the phone's features to those of its G7 siblings, however.

All Moto G7 models will be available in Europe starting mid-February. The back of the smartphone has a 12MP sensor while the rectangular notch at the front accommodates an 8MP sensor.

The launch begins at around 12.30pm GMT and will be bringing you all the news live as it happens but some leaks have already given us an idea of what's to come.

But heck, if that's not your speed, there's also a mode that automatically takes a photo when everyone (well, up to five people) smiles.

From an economic and market perspective, the Motorola G7 refresh isn't technologically disruptive as much as it is financially.

The G7 Power retains the headphone jack on the Moto G7, but shuffles it over to the top edge.

The non-suffixed G7 also offers a 12MP dual camera system and Qualcomm's 632 processor, which comes paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB baked-in storage.

The Plus has NFC, while the G7 doesn't seem to - which is very unusual. Instead, Motorola is updating the only smartphone line that has really been working well for it in recent years, with the unveiling of three brand new Moto G7 smartphones: The Moto G7, Moto G7 Play, and Moto G7 Power. Motorola has crammed a 5000mAh battery into this device, which it says will get you up to three days of battery life on a single charge.

The Moto G7 Power seems like an effective compromise unit, even if it isn't a device that will turn heads - we'll know more after we've spent some quality time with the phone for our full review.
