Motorola G7 and G7 Plus Coming Next Year, But No G7 Play
With the Motorola G6 Plus having released just a few days back, it is a little early for this announcement. However, it is confirmed that the Motorola G7 and Motorola G7 Plus will be launching in 2019. What is surprising is that the company will not be launching the G7 Play.
The launch of the devices will be seen in either by the end of Q1 2019 or in the beginning of Q2 2019. The Morotola G6 Plus had been launched in India with a price tag of Rs 22,499. This is a bit high considering the features it packs, compared to other models at this price range. We did not see much novelty with the Motorola G6 Plus. However, it is expected that the company will be working harder on the next-gen G7.
The decision to drop the Play variant in the next series can be justified. As seen earlier, the Moto G6 Play and the Moto E5 Plus are almost the same in terms of hardware. This makes it difficult to distinguish between the two.
Judging by its present devices, Motorola will have to work really hard to match up with the standards set by its competitors. The G7 devices should ideally be running more powerful chipsets, unlike the G6 devices. The G7 and G7 Plus should respectively offer 4 GB and 6 GB of RAM as a standard. A better screen to body ratio and larger, sharper displays can also be expected from these devices. With the Motorola One and One Power already sporting notches, it is possible that they may show up on the G7 next year.
Based on the pricing of previous Motorola devices, the G7 can be expected to cost around Rs 15,000 while the G7 Plus will take over the Rs 20,000 segment.
