Motorola recently announced the launch of its new budget handsets from the popular Moto G series at an event in Brazil. This new lineup of devices includes the Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, Moto G7 Play, and the Moto G7 Power. Since the Moto G series have been quite popular in India, there is a good chance these will eventually make it to India. While Motorola India has not yet confirmed if these products are coming to India, we have received indications that at least the Moto G7 Power is India-bound thanks to a series of tweets by Mahesh Telecom, a leading telecom retailer based out of Mumbai. Let’s quickly dive into the details
Moto G7 Power: When is it coming to India and at what price?
We still do not have a confirmed date. However, in an image posted by Mahesh Telecom on their official Twitter account, the retail box of the Moto G7 Power can be clearly seen. This is an indication that Motorola India has started to ship stocks to leading retailers across the country. Mahesh Telecom has in a subsequent tweet also revealed the price at which the Moto g7 Power would be sold in India. According to him, the device has an MRP of INR 15,999. Motorola, however, will launch the device for INR 14,500 in the country. Note that Mahesh Telecom in a later tweet corrected the MRP of the device from INR 18,999 to INR 15,999.

Let us now check what the Moto G7 Power has to offer to you the consumer for this near INR 16K price tag.
Motorola G7 Power: Specifications, Features
To start with, let it be known that the Moto G7 Power and the G7 Play are both lighter, trimmed down versions of their other G7 brethren. The G7 Power gets a 6.2-inch HD+ display (1520 x 720 pixels) which as you might have already guessed, does not really look impressive against what most of the competition has on offer for the same price. Even Motorola’s own Moto One Power has a higher resolution panel.
The Moto G7 Power gets the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC and comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, again unimpressive if the price tag is around INR 15,000. The phone features a single 12-megapixel camera at the rear with f/2.0 aperture and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture. The highlight of the handset is the large 5,000 mAh battery that it boasts of. The Moto G7 Power also features plenty of connectivity options that include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz), USB Type-C, NFC and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
