Motorola is tipped to launch its next round of Moto G phones in the coming months, and we might now have a look at them. Droid Shout picked up the renders and they potentially show off four G models: the Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Power, and G7 Play.
The G7 and G7 Plus would apparently come with a waterdrop notch, while the G7 Play and G7 Power would have a wider (and in the G7 Play’s case, ultra-wide) notch. It also appears Power and Play would feature vertically-mounted dual rear camera sensors while the standard and Plus models would have a horizontal camera setup.
A dual rear camera setup on the G7 Play could be an upgrade over the G6 Play’s single rear camera. However, Motorola has previously used housings that give the impression of a dual camera setup on the likes of the single camera Moto E5 Plus and Play. We could be looking at single camera setups on the Power and Play, after all.
The regular G and G7 Plus once again appear to be the more ‘premium’ handsets, while the less-angular Play and Power would likely be less expensive variants.
Previous rumors suggested the Moto G7 would pack a 6-inch, Full HD+ display with 64GB of internal storage. A dual 16MP + 5MP camera setup is tipped for the rear, while it’s also said to house a 3,500mAh battery. You can expect the Plus variant to have a larger display, the Power variant to have a larger battery, and the Play variant to be slightly less powerful.
The Moto G6 series appeared in May this year and the G5s arrived in April 2017. Based on those timelines, it could be that we still have some months to wait before the G7 series launches, despite the rumors.
As for the source, we don’t know much about Droid Shout so should treat the renders cautiously. With that being said, we have seen the Moto G7 Plus render once before, from a different source, and it is identical to the one above (save for the color), which suggests it’s legit.
