Motorola unveils another low-cost phone with a bigger battery and a better camera


The mid-end product portfolio, as proven by recent unveiling, may well make sense for Motorola’s low and scattered confusing year. Moto G9 (also known as G9 play), the G9 Plus, and the all-new Moto E7 Plus.

Totally leaked yesterday, this later entry-level 6.5-inch model is fundamentally different You can usually buy Moto E (2020) in the US for $ 149.99, even if both devices look identical at first glance.

Big but not (extremely) heavy

first of all, The E7 Plus shares its stunning 5,000mAh battery capacity with the aforementioned G9 and G9 Plus, thus improving the modest 3,550mAh cell size of the 6.2-inch Moto E (2020). The larger display of Motorola’s latest ultra-low-cost handset, however, does not come with an equally substantial resolution upgrade, meaning that the pixel count is actually a slight downgrade.

Apparently, the larger battery causes the Moto E7 Plus to gain significantly more weight than its cousin, with scales not exceeding 200 grams, while additional screen real estate adds a few millimeters to 165 millimeter height. On the bright side, the 6.5-inch part is not too thick, at 9.2 mm, and its bezels look slightly smaller than the Moto E (2020).

If you’re wondering, the massive battery is rated at “more than two days” of endurance between “typical” usage charges, a feat that would be impossible to achieve without frugal processors like Qualcomm’s Octa-core Snapdragon 460.

This is the same chipset from which power can be expected OnePlus “Clover” and Under the hood of Nokia 3.4, and the Moto E7 Plus, it is mated to a respectable 4GB RAM count and 64Ghz storage.

Even cheaper it seems

Believe it or not, the long running time of the E7 Plus may not be its major selling point, as the handset also comes with a 48MP primary rear-facing shooter. This is from a humble main 13MP imaging sensor behind the Moto E (2020), and thanks to quad pixel technology, it should produce an astonishing 12MP snapshot for the phone’s price point.

This is roughly equivalent to $ 250 in Brazil, where both the E7 Plus and the G9 Plus are unveiled today, but not much less, but before you pancake, you should know that mobile devices are normally used for those. Parts around are outrageously expensive.

This means that if the Moto E7 Plus is coming to the US (and it’s a big one), its recommended retail price is unlikely to exceed $ 200. With all the above features, a secondary 2MP depth shooter on the back, a single 8MP front-facing camera, 10W fast charging capabilities, a headphone jack, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, pre-installed Android 10 software, and two eye-catchers Color options (amber bronzes and navy blue), this thing would definitely be a strong budget-friendly contender state.

Unfortunately, last year The E6 Plus has never made its (official) way to the US, and something tells us the same will be true for the Moto E7 Plus. And the Moto G9 Plus, and even the “regular” Moto G9. For what it’s worth The Moto G Fast is a great deal at the time of this writing, with a triple rear-facing camera, Snapdragon 665 SoC, and a nice 4,000mAh battery in tow that fetches $ 169.99.

Curiously enough, the larger battery Moto G Power is not currently available from its manufacturer’s official US website, although you can still get it from Best Buy starting at $ 199.99. So, yes, there is definitely no shortage of decent affordable moto-branded options.
