It was the month of September when Motorola unveiled the Moto E6 Plus last year at IFA Berlin. That device offered the MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core SOC, a small 3,000mAh battery, dual rear cameras & more at a price of €139. Now, Motorola is all set to unveil the successor, i.e., the Moto E7 Plus.
Today, Evan Blass shared a few specifications of the phone on Twitter. The image he shared shows the highlights of E7 Plus that include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 octa-core SOC, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, a huge 5,000mAh battery & a dual-camera setup on the rear with a primary 48 Megapixel shooter.
It is worth mentioning that the Snapdragon 460 chipset was unveiled in January this year alongside the Snapdragon 720G & the Snapdragon 662. The Snapdragon 460 is based on the 11nm manufacturing process & the CPU features the Kryo 240 cores. This is the first Snapdragon 400-series SOC to feature Kryo cores.
Compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450, the Snapdragon 460 offers a massive 70% improvement in the CPU performance & 60% improvement in the GPU performance. The GPU is Adreno 610, btw.
In short, the Moto E7 Plus is definitely a big upgrade over the Moto E6 Plus when we talk about the performance.
Last month, 91Mobiles shared the live images of E7 Plus which revealed that the device has a waterdrop notch on the front & a vertically placed dual-camera setup on the rear that also includes Laser Autofocus system. The fingerprint scanner is also on the rear. There is a USB Type-C port on the bottom & the phone seems to have a glass back. But, it could be glossy plastic as well.
