Motorola isn’t doing great from the past couple of years when it comes to smartphones. The company does launch phones in every price segment each year, but they don’t seem to provide a good value for money, and the reason for this is that the company launches overpriced phones every year with nothing unique for that price. Last month, Motorola unveiled the Moto G7 family, and on March 25th, the G7 is launching in India.
India is one of the biggest markets for Motorola, and the company launches its ‘G’ series phones every year in the Indian market. Last year, the Moto G6 family launched as well, but that didn’t sell well because all the phones were overpriced. Then the company had to launch Motorola One Power at a lower price to cope with the damage occurred.
Talking about the Moto G7, it has a 3D Glass Back, Dual rear cameras, a waterdrop notch on the front and a big bottom chin. The phone has a USB Type-C port and headphone jack on the bottom.
There is a 6.2-inch LTPS LCD panel with a Full-HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio fo 19:9. The display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Under the hood, there is a Snapdragon 632 processor which is an upgrade to the Snapdragon 625. FYI, the Moto G6 launched last year with Snapdragon 450, so 632 is a good upgrade. But, considering that you get way better specs from the competition at this price, it would be interesting to see at what price Motorola launches the G6 in India.
There is 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM & dual rear cameras that include a primary 12MP f/1.8 camera along with a 5MP depth sensor. There is no OIS like the G7 Plus. On the front, the phone has an 8MP camera. The usual camera features are there like Portrait Mode, HDR, etc.
The battery underneath is a small 3,000mAh unit that supports 15W Turbocharging via the USB Type-C port. It is worth mentioning that the G7 Plus comes with a 27W Fast Charging. Finally, Android 9 Pie runs out of the box with a couple of Motorola apps.
In the European market, the Moto G7 launched for €250 that translates to around Rs 19,500. If Motorola launched the G7 in India at the same price, then it will already be dead before it goes on sale. Companies like Asus provide Snapdragon 636 powered phones for as low as Rs 8,499 in India and Motorola would have to launch the G7 somewhere around this price to ensure that it sells pretty well.
