Moto G7 quartet makes official debut ahead of MWC

Since Lenovo bought Motorola, the company has pivoted from introducing single phones to launching several slightly different devices simultaneously.

There's plenty of handy camera features on board here, including Auto Smile Capture (you don't even need to press the shutter button) and Spot Color for picking which part of the frame you want in color. Still, the Moto G7 should have good battery life because its chip and display consume less power than those on top Android models. The G7 makes due with just a 3,000 mAh battery.

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. The smartphone is powered by the same Snapdragon 632 SoC on the G7, but with lower memory and storage-3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Not overly powerful, but not bargain bin-quality either.

For your money, you get Snapdragon 632 processor, 5.7-inch Max Vision display and 13-megapixel rear camera.

The Moto G7 Power has a retail price of $249 and it will be available in the USA within the next month. That'll probably last you about 3 days.

The new Moto G7 Power will be released in the USA starting this spring with subsequent availability at T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Cricket Wireless (as the moto g7 supra), Consumer Cellular, Republic Wireless, Ting and Xfinity Mobile, and will be universally unlocked at Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart and on Amazon.com. It'll supposedly be a flip phone like the original RAZR that remains one of the best-selling cell phones of all time, but with a new foldable OLED screen like the ones we'll soon see in next-gen phones from Samsung and Huawei.

The curved plastic back of the Moto G7 Power has a shimmering finish that looks classier than its budget price tag would suggest - it's certainly nicer than the matte plastic on the G7 Play, although cheaper than the glass back of the standard G7.

The Moto G7 Play is the most stripped down, affordable smartphone in the G7 family. There's also a second camera which is only 5 megapixel and is only used as a depth sensor for those chintzy background blur filters that try to simulate narrow depth-of-field but never really succeed in doing it right... at least that's what I have to say. Samsung will roll out the Galaxy S10 family this month and with it will come prices that will be decidedly higher than what Motorola just outlined. Rounding things out are USB-C and 3.5mm headphone ports, FM radio support, and Android 9 Pie.

Motorola has relocated the circular fingerprint scanner onto the back of the handset across the entire Moto G7 range.

Created to take your best pictures ever and keep up with your fast pace life, the new moto g7 plus is all about class leading camera technology and responsive performance. The back of the smartphone has a 12MP sensor while the rectangular notch at the front accommodates an 8MP sensor. The Moto G family is exhibit A for the premium phone/affordable price movement.

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.

Unfortunately, the G7 Plus won't be coming to the U.S., but the other models will arrive in the spring.

The Moto G7 Power will be available in the United Kingdom from March 1 at Carphone Warehouse, EE, Vodafone, John Lewis, Tesco and other participating resellers with a starting RRP of £179.

When it comes to specs, the highlight feature of the Moto G7 Power is its battery.

The moto g7 plus is available today in Brazil and Mexico.
