[Exclusive] Moto G7 and Moto G7 Power to Launch in India in Q1 2019

Moto G7 and Moto G7 Power will be the first Moto G7 series smartphones to arrive in India.


Lenovo-owned smartphone maker Motorola Mobility is expected to take the wraps off its Moto G7 series smartphones at an event in Brazil before the Mobile World Congress 2019 next month. As some of you might remember, Motorola had unveiled the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play smartphones at an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil last year. According to a new tip that we have received from a trusted source, Motorola will be launching the Moto G7 and Moto G7 Power smartphones in the Indian market before the end of the current quarter. The Moto G7 Plus and Moto G7 Play, on the other hand, could possibly debut in the country sometime later this year.

Moto G7, Moto G7 Power to Launch in India Before March-End

Unlike its predecessor, the Moto G7 will feature a waterdrop notch display and is likely to offer an impressive screen-to-body ratio. In terms of design, the handset will be largely identical to the more expensive Moto G7 Plus. The smartphone is expected to run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor under the hood, a huge upgrade over the Snapdragon 450 chipset powering its predecessor. In the Indian market, the Moto G7 is likely to be priced around the INR 15,000 mark. The smartphone will be available in Black and White color options at launch.

The Moto G7 Power will be a more affordable smartphone with a wide notch and a single rear camera. It is rumored to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 or Snapdragon 632 octa-core processor under the hood. Its main selling point, however, will be a massive 5000mAh capacity battery with fast charging support. Consumers looking for an affordable smartphone with fantastic battery life are definitely going to be interested in the Moto G7 Power. However, Motorola will need to get the pricing right in order for the smartphone to become popular among consumers in India. The ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2 also offers a 5000mAh capacity battery and starts at INR 12,999 for the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant. Moto G7 Power is expected to come in two colors: Black and Lilac Purple.
