Motorola debuted 4 new phones this week, all part of the Moto G7 series. We already did a hands on with two of them and now there’s one here for testing purposes: Moto G7 Power. We’ve just unboxed it below and you should know it’s priced at $250.
The device comes inside a green box, much like the predecessors Moto G6 models. Inside there’s a case, flexible and transparent, plus an USB Type-C cable and 15W charger. There’s also a metal SIM key and the manual. The device felt light at first when I did the hands on, but now it feels a bit heavier, bizarre as that may sound. It weighs 193 grams and measures 9.3 mm in thickness.
Even though it seems made of metal and glass, it’s actually a metal frame and a special polymer at the back, that mimics glass. The handset does feel solid and comes with a premium build. It packs a 6.2 inch screen with a 1520 x 720 pixel resolution and inside there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, plus microSD card slot, at least in the version we play with.
The slot is compatible with 512 GB cards. Other specs include a fingerprint scanner at the back, a 5000 mAh battery and the main 12 MP single camera. It has an LED flash an 4K capture is also part of the package. Selfies are taken with an 8 MP shooter, upfront. Android Pie is the OS of choice, with a stock UI and the promise of fast updates.
Moto G7 Power comes in black, blue or violet and comes with special camera features like Bokeh, Spot Color, Cinemagraph and even a manual mode of sorts. The handset is priced at $250 and we’ll be back very soon with a full review. I have great expectations from the 2 day battery life promised here. It already sounds like a killer rival for ASUS ZenFone Max Pro (M2).
