Motorola’s upcoming Moto G7 budget Android smartphone was spotted on the FCC website last month. It was also certified by Taiwanese NCC certification agency recently. The upcoming smartphone has now been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Two variants of the Moto G7 have received Wi-Fi certification: XT1962-1 and XT1962-4.
Moto G7 XT1962-1 and XT1962-4 Variants Granted Wi-Fi Certification
The Moto G7 Wi-Fi certification confirms the smartphone will support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and run on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box. As revealed by the previous FCC listings, the XT1962-1 variant will be headed to the US. The variant will be offered in two memory configurations: 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 3GB RAM + 64GB storage. However, unlike the XT1962-5 variant, the XT1962-1 will lack NFC support. The Moto G7 XT1962-4 variant, on the other hand, will be the one headed to Latin America. It will be available only in a single memory configuration with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Similar to the US variant, the XT1962-4 will not support NFC either.
Previous leaks have suggested the Moto G7 will come with a waterdrop notch display with Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, Moto G7 will be powered by Qualcomm’s popular Snapdragon 660 14nm octa-core processor, coupled with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Moto G7 Plus, however, is rumored to be powered by a more powerful Snapdragon 710 10nm octa-core processor. Like its predecessor, we expect the Moto G7 to include a microSD card slot for further storage expansion up to 256GB. The smartphone is also confirmed to sport dual rear cameras as well as a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. Along with the Moto G7, Motorola is expected to soon launch three other Moto G7 series smartphones: Moto G7 Play, Moto G7 Power, and the Moto G7 Plus. All the four Moto G7 series smartphones could be officially announced at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona next month. They are expected to be launched in India within a few weeks of their official unveiling.
