Although it is just five years since Motorola announced the first Moto G smartphone, the series is set to enter its 7th generation next year. The Moto G series has expanded to include Plus and Play variants and next year’s version will be no different. Images and specs of the Moto G7 Play have surfaced on the web thanks to FCC documents.
According to the images from the user manual, the Moto G7 Play will have a notch but not a water-drop type like that of the Moto G7 Plus and the Moto G7. The notch will be wider and will be home to the front camera, speaker and an LED flash. The bezel below the screen is a bit thick and even has the manufacturer’s name.
The Moto G7 Play will retain the single rear camera of its predecessor albeit with a slightly redesigned housing. It will also keep the fingerprint scanner under the Motorola logo and the audio jack at the top. However, Motorola has swapped the MicroUSB port at the bottom for a USB-C type. The volume and power buttons are on the right while the SIM card and MicroSD card sit on the left.
The Moto G7 Play will have a single SIM version and a dual-SIM version that has a triple card slot as shown in the image above. The phone will also have support for Face Unlock.
There are also a couple of live photos and one reveals the phone will come in Ice Blue and Black. Another image also shows the different chargers (5V 1A) that will come with the phone. We can make out a US plug, an EU plug, an AU plug (Australia) and a UK plug. So expect the Moto G7 Play to launch in these regions. There is also a pair of wired earphones.
The Moto G7 Plus has a 3,000mAh battery as seen in one of the images. It will also swap the Snapdragon 430 processor for the Snapdragon 632 processor.
The Moto G7 Play will launch next year alongside its siblings – the Moto G7 Plus and the Moto G7.
