Motorola unveiled the Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play in May 2018, but having already passed through the FCC the Moto G7 line could be here earlier than anticipated - perhaps as early as March 2019.

Once again we're anticipating standard, Plus and Play models in the G7 line, now with larger screens, higher-capacity batteries, increased memory and improved cameras.

When is the Moto G7 release date?

Though the Moto G5 was announced in March 2017, in 2018 we didn't see the G6 series until May. With the phones having already passed through the FCC we think Motorola could return to its earlier release strategy, and we could even see the phones announced at MWC in February and on sale in March.

How much will the Moto G7 cost?

Although nothing has officially been confirmed, with no major changes we expect pricing to be in line with the outgoing generation.

The Moto G6 line was introduced at £169 for the Play, £219 for the standard model, and £269 for the Plus.

What are the rumoured Moto G7 features and specifications?

Leaked specs for the Moto G7 reveal it will feature a 6in Full-HD+ display (up from 5.7in), an octa-core processor (likely the Snapdragon 636 or 660), 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (likely with microSD support), a 3,500mAh battery, a 16Mp + 5Mp primary camera and 12Mp selfie camera, plus a fingerprint sensor. It will also run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.

A concept video created by @OnLeaks and MySmartPrice reveals what the Moto G7 could look like:

Since this video's release case renders for the Moto G7 have appeared on AliExpress, seemingly confirming a waterdrop screen notch, a dual-lens camera and rear fingerprint sensor built into the Motorola logo:

As the cheapest model in the line-up the Moto G7 Play is expected to feature a larger screen notch, a single-lens rear camera and a plastic- rather than glass design. The battery could also be lower in capacity at 2,820mAh, which is disappointing given that the current model has a 4,000mAh cell, and the processor less powerful than that of its siblings with the Snapdragon 632 and Adreno 506 GPU in place. Despite its inclusion of a USB-C port, the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack is expected to remain.

Images of the Moto G7 Play that were discovered on the FCC site are shown at the top of this article.

The Moto G7 Plus will be the largest and most powerful of the three, potentially with a 6.4in 19.5:9 display and Snapdragon 710 inside. Expect 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as standard. Wireless charging will be possible on the standard and Plus models.

An alleged image of the Moto G7 Plus has been published by MrGizmo.com, show below. It reveals a similar design to the Moto G6 Plus, but with a new waterdrop-style screen notch and slimmer bezels (also expected to be present on the standard model).
