Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility is soon expected to unveil its next-generation Moto G-series smartphone, the Moto G7. The smartphone was recently spotted on the FCC website, which suggests it may be made official sooner than expected. While the smartphone’s launch date is yet to be confirmed, we have got our hands on the first press render of the Moto G7, revealing a completely revamped design compared to the current Moto G-series smartphones.
As you can see in the press render above, Moto G7 will sport a teardrop notch at the top, which helps maximize the screen-to-body ratio. That said, the chin at the bottom is still a little too thick when compared to OPPO and Vivo smartphones featuring a similar notch design. On the back of the handset, we can see a dual-camera setup with two horizontally-stacked sensors and an LED flash module below them. Placed below the circular camera module is the Motorola batwing logo with the fingerprint sensor embedded inside. The press render also highlights the smartphone’s glass back with curved sides and rounded corners. While we cannot confirm it, a recent leak had suggested the Moto G7 might be the company’s first G-series smartphone to offer Qi wireless charging support.
The Moto G7 is rumored to feature a 6.0-inch display with Full HD+ resolution, a small upgrade compared to the 5.7-inch HD+ resolution display of the Moto G6. In terms of performance, however, the Moto G7 is tipped to be significantly more powerful than its predecessor, thanks to an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset. The octa-core processor could be coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. As for optics, the Moto G7 is rumored to include a 16MP main snapper and a 5MP secondary depth-sensing camera at the rear. On the front of the handset is expected to be a 12MP unit for selfies. When it comes to battery life, the current Moto G6 is not a particularly impressive smartphone, thanks to a 3000mAh capacity battery. Its successor, on the other hand, is said to pack a larger 3500mAh capacity battery with fast charging support. Since the Moto G7 is expected to be launched by the end of the year or early next year, it will probably be launched with the Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box.
