Motorola Moto G7 XT1955-4 Variant Gets Certified by NCC

Just yesterday, the XT1955-4 variant of the upcoming Motorola Moto G7 Power was certified by the Taiwanese NCC certification agency. Another upcoming Motorola smartphone has now been spotted on the NCC website, this time the XT1962-6 variant of the Moto G7. As with the Moto G7 Power listing on the NCC website, the Moto G7 certification does not reveal any new information regarding the device. It does, however, suggest that the Moto G7 series family may well be announced much sooner than expected. Apart from the standard Moto G7 and Moto G7 Power, Motorola is also working on Moto G7 Plus and Moto G7 Play smartphones currently.

First Look At Motorola Moto G7 Design

The Moto G6 saw Motorola move from a 16:9 screen to a taller screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. With the Moto G7, the now-Lenovo-owned company will increase the screen-to-body ratio even further by moving to a larger and taller screen. The display will also have a waterdrop notch at the top-middle portion, and the notch will hide accommodate the front-facing camera as well as the earpiece. The entire front portion of the Moto G7 will be covered by Corning’s Gorilla Glass panel (most probably, Gorilla Glass 4) and the device will be resistant to dust and water splashes, similar to that of the Moto G6.

At the rear, the Moto G7 will have a circular dual-camera assembly, featuring the dual-LED flash and a surprised minion-like face. The entire rear of the phone will be covered by a glass panel, with curves on the sides and rounded corners. The fingerprint reader will shift from the front to the rear, hidden under Motorola’s Batwing logo. The phone will have both power and volume buttons on the right side, leaving the left side completely devoid of any slots or buttons. The microSD and SIM card slot will be at the top, while the loudspeaker, USB Type-C port and the 3.5mm headphone jack will be at the bottom of the Moto G7.

Motorola Moto G7 Gets Improved Cameras & Bigger Battery

While the Moto G6 had a run-of-the-mill dual-camera setup and an average battery capacity for its price, Motorola will improve upon these features in the Moto G7. There will be a 16MP camera sensor in the Moto G7’s dual-camera setup, which will have a wider aperture for better low-light images. It could also feature 4K video recording. The 5MP depth sensor unit at the rear will allow the Moto G7 to capture still images with background blur effect. At the front, the Moto G7 will feature a larger 12MP sensor with bigger pixels, resulting in sharper and more detailed selfies.

Motorola Moto G7

Since the Moto G7 will come with the largest screen ever on a Moto G series device, it will require a larger capacity battery to go with it. So Motorola will equip the smartphone with a 3500mAh battery, and it will feature faster charging (at 15W). The company will also bundle a compatible Turbo Charger inside the phone’s box so that you won’t have to buy it separately if you want to top up the battery charge quicker. While not as fast as Quick Charge 3.0 or Dash Charge, it’s still better than all the 2018 iPhones that come bundled with measly 5W chargers.
