Alleged Moto G7 XT1965-3 Variant Running Android 9 Pie Secures EEC Certification

A new Motorola smartphone appeared on the EEC website. Although details are scare, the device appears to be a variant of the Motorola Moto G7 lineup.


A mystery Motorola smartphone has appeared on the EEC website. Based on the previous reports about Motorola handsets, the device could be a variant of the upcoming Motorola Moto G7.

Moto G7 XT1965-3 Variant Receives EEC Certification

After the XT1962-5 and XT1962-6 variants, a new variant of the Moto G7 bearing the model number XT1965-3 has now been certified by the Russian certification agency. While the EEC listing does not confirm the marketing name of the device, it does confirm the Android version. Going by the EEC listing, Motorola G7 will be launched with the Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box at launch. Apart from that, however, the EEC listing does not reveal any new information regarding the upcoming smartphone.


A new Motorola phone has just been spotted on the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) in Russia. Motorola is actively developing the Moto G7 Series of devices, and this new device with the codenames XT1955-7, XT1962-6, XT1962-5, could be one of the several handsets.

Motorola is reportedly launching several devices that come under the Moto G7 family. They include Moto G7, Moto G7 Play, Moto G7 Plus and Moto G7 Power. The affordable G Series has been one of Motorola’s most promising and successful ventures for the past couple of years. Moreover, the company has been actively developing devices with the Play, Power and Plus monikers. These devices differ slightly in specifications, and are meant for different use scenarios.

Mystery Motorola Smartphone Secures EEC Certification

The mystery Motorola smartphone with the codenames XT1955-7, XT1962-5, XT1962-6 was submitted on November 11, and the certification date appears to be November 20. As has been the norm, the EEC generally does not reveal the model name, except in a few odd cases. The new Motorola smartphone is no exception as the EEC mentions only the codename of the device.

The current EEC certification doesn’t offer any details about the Motorola smartphone. More details are perhaps hidden behind a secure firewall that requires a login. Interestingly, two of the Android handsets belonging to the Moto G7 family reportedly appeared on Anatel, a Brazilian certification agency.

Motorola smartphone with the codename XT1965-2 surfaced on the FCC as well. The device surprisingly has a rather small 2,820mAh Amperex manufactured battery. The advertised capacity could be 3,000mAh. Needless to mention, the previous iteration, the Moto G6 too, has the same capacity battery. The other supposed Moto G7 model too, packs the same capacity battery. The Motorola device bears the codename XT1962-4.

It is rather difficult to confidently indicate if the multiple Motorola devices getting certified, are indeed variants of the Moto G7 lineup. However, multiple reports do strongly indicate all these various devices passing through various certifying agencies across the globe, could belong to the Moto G7 family.

Motorola Moto G7 Rumored Specifications, Features

Interestingly, one of the devices from the Motorola Moto G7 Series, has already secured FCC approval in the U.S. The filing data reveals the device packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

MSP Gear and Mr. Gizmo had reported about the design parameters of the Moto G7, and even posted exclusive renders of the same. The Moto G7 Series will feature a beautiful teardrop notch that will contain the front-facing camera. The device will have the signature dual camera setup on the back, but the exact specifications of the camera lens haven’t surfaced yet.

The Moto G7 Series Smartphones

The Moto G7 smartphone will be the main Motorola handset in the series. However, it will not be the top-end model. Based on the previous Motorola smartphones, the Moto G7 Play could be the basic version that would sport an affordable price tag. The Moto G7 Plus could sport a slightly better processor or at least the Snapdragon 660 SoC with a little higher clock-speed and more RAM/internal torage. The Moto G7 Power would be the handset with the biggest battery in the G7 family.

We expect Motorola could launch the Moto G7 lineup early next year. Smartphone enthusiasts further narrow down the window to between March and May. The G-Series usually sports an aggressive and attractive price, and the Moto G7 family should not be an exception, and may just have some interesting features. Moreover, given the timeframe, the devices should be running a very stable version of Android 9 Pie OS.
