Moto G7 case renders reaffirm waterdrop design, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor
We are inching closer and closer to the start of major phone launches in 2019. Motorola will be one of the brands to kick things off early with the launch of the Moto G7 in February. There have been enough renders and reports to give us an idea of what to expect from the upcoming affordable Moto line, including the fact that there will be not three but four Moto G7 phones in total. Two of the phones (i.e the Moto G7 and the G7 Plus) are expected to come with waterdrop displays and some case renders this week further reaffirms this design.
The renders spotted on SlashLeak this week show off the Moto G7's design in a clear case. It show the Moto G7 with a droplet-style notch and a chin bezel that houses the Motorola branding. This means more display and fewer bezels all around, so you can expect a bigger screen in a form factor similar to the Moto G6. While the Moto G6 comes with a 5.7-inch display, the upcoming Moto G7 is said to come with a 5.99-inch display. Meanwhile, the Moto G7 Plus will offer a similar waterdrop design only with a bigger display size.
The renders show off other angles of the Moto G7 as well, revealing a speaker grille, USB Type-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom, and power and volume buttons on the right side. The 3D curved rear panel, which is likely made up of glass, will see a circular camera module with two camera sensors and an LED flash. The Moto batwing logo on just below it will also house a fingerprint sensor.
The Moto G7 is rumoured to launch with a Snapdragon 660 chipset at the core, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Moto G7 Plus may get a similar chipset but with more RAM and storage and possibly a bigger battery as well.
The other two phones in the lineup i.e the Moto G7 Power and G7 Play are said to come with wider notches and a single camera on the back. The Moto G7 Power could get a massive 5,000mAh battery and a similar SD660 chipset. The Moto G7 Play is expected to be the cheapest of the lot, while the G7 Plus will be the most expensive model.
While Motorola is yet to confirm the date of launch of the Moto G7 series, reports say that it will happen in February ahead of the Mobile World Congress. The launch is said to take place in Brazil, which is where the company also announced the Moto G6-series last year. We can expect the phones to come to India soon after.
