Moto G7 Launch Reportedly Set For February 2019, Moto P40 Leaked With Punch-hole Selfie Cam

Written By Tech Desk | Mumbai | Published:

Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility is reportedly gearing to launch the 2019 edition of the Moto G, aka the Moto G7, as early as February next year. The Moto G7-series is said to bring as many as four devices, the Moto G7, the Moto G7 Plus, the Moto G7 Play and the Moto G7 Power, and Motorola is apparently looking to launch them at a stand-alone keynote event in Brazil ahead of MWC 2019. The Moto G6-series, to recall, was also launched in Brazil at around the same time. 

The Moto G7 line-up has been leaked multiple times, and we do have some idea how the Moto G7, the Moto G7 Plus, the Moto G7 Play and the Moto G7 Power, may turn out to be. Of these, the Moto G7 and the Moto G7 Plus would be more premium models with dual rear cameras, while the Moto G7 Play and the Moto G7 Power are said to be more affordable offerings. The Power, should Motorola launch it, would be a first ‘Power’ device in the Moto G line-up. 

Rumour has it that the Moto G7 would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with up to 4GB RAM and up to 64GB storage. The Moto G7 Plus, which would be the most expensive Moto G phone if history is in its favour, is said to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor clubbed with up to 4GB RAM and up to 64GB storage.  

The more affordable Moto G7 Play and Moto G7 Power will reportedly come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor under the hood respectively. The Moto G7 Power, additionally, would come with a massive 5,000 battery seemingly justifying its ‘Power’ moniker. 

In other news, the 2019 edition of the Android One-backed Moto One (Power) or the Moto P40 has leaked in renders. The renders suggest that the Moto P40 would come with a punch-hole selfie camera like the one we’ve seen recently in the Honor View 20 and the Samsung Galaxy A8s. We’re also looking at a vertically aligned dual rear camera setup and USB Type-C for charging and data syncing. Considering the price point that the Moto One operates in, it would be interesting to see if Motorola actually opts for an in-screen selfie camera here. If it does, we might be looking at one of the most affordable devices to come with such a design quirk.
