Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power rumor review

The Moto G7 Power is also listed as having NFC in some regions and while that's all the filing tells us, a source speaking to XDA Developers has turned up more information.

That's an enormous size, bigger than the vast majority of phones, but not unheard of from the company, as the Moto E5 Plus for example also has a 5,000mAh battery.

Last month we heard Lenovo is dropping plenty of its Moto series, but the G line will stay with a fourth powerful addition to the family.

Now, though, Motorola is planning to launch the new Moto G7 Play with a smaller battery, a 2,820mAh cell.

The Thai certification agency says the device has model number XT1955-4 and will be commerially known as the the Moto G7 Power. It measures 159x76mm with a diagonal length of 167mm.

Moto G7 Power will come with one main camera with an LED flash. Notably, the FCC listing also showcases details about the connectivity options in the Moto G7 Power. There will be reportedly be versions with 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage, though it's unclear how RAM and storage will be paired in each variant. Additionally, the Moto G7 Power is expected to come with 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM options and there will be 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage models.

The handset will run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and this will not be an Android One device. The expected camera features are a Cinemagraph mode, spot colouring, and bokeh shots.

Prior to this, Moto G7 Play was spotted on the FCC (via Droidlife) with model number XT1952. Moto G7 Play is expected to be the cheapest variant of the Moto G7 lineup and could come in two colour options - black and light blue.

If these specs are accurate then the Moto G7 Power should be a lower mid-range handset, which is about what we'd expect, but one that could appeal to anyone who wants a massive battery in their phone. In fact, the battery seems like a downgrade even when compared with the current Moto G6 Play, which is backed by a 4,000mAh battery.
