Alleged Moto G7 specs leak tips Motorola may hop on the big-screen train

Alleged Moto G7 specs leak tips Motorola may hop on the big-screen train
Back when we reviewed the Moto G6 trio of phones that Motorola unleashed in early spring, and you see above, we found them to be a great bang for the buck, and we are certainly expecting the same from their successor(s). 

So far, besides two leaked logos of a G7 and G7 Plus, we hadn't heard anything else about the eventual G6 heir(s). The two logos may indicate а lack of a battery-heavy Play model this time around, and today a few leaked specs, allegedly of the G7, hint at why.

If the specs snapshot below holds water in the end, we are looking at a ginormous 6.4" display on the G7, in line with the times where top-shelf makers like Samsung, Apple, and LG already issued phones with such display diagonals. This usually means there may be a place for a larger battery pack (well, the LG V40 didn't get that memo), hence negating the logic for a third, G7 Play variant with a focus on battery life.

In any case, we are looking at 1080p Full HD+ resolution, octa-core chipset, likely a Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM/64GB storage, a dual rear camera just like on the leaked photos of an alleged G7 prototype you see on the right, but a fairly pedestrian 3500 mAh battery which is par for the course these days.

By the time this eventual G7 hits the tape, it will carry Android 9.0 Pie, of course, and Motorola is known for extremely fast updates, too. As for why is the leaked specs sheet in Portuguese, it's just that Motorola is huge in Brazil and the whole of Latin America, more so than it is now in the US or Europe.

Moto can certainly improve upon their extremely fast updates...

Motorola already hopped on the big screen starting with the Moto G5/G5+. The Moto G6 plus has a 5.93 inch 2160x1080 display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and a density of 409 dpi. It's base model comes with 64 GB of expandable storage, and 4 GB of RAM. It also comes with dual rear cameras (12 mp f/1.7 dual pixel camera, and a 5 mp wide angle camera), and it can take 4k video. A 3200 mha battery, and a fast USB-C charger is included in the box. It even has the same LTE speed as an iPhone XR. It's SD 630 is also fast enough to do VR. It even comes with a FM radio, and NFC for payments. It's price is less than half the price of an iPhone XR. Yet the G6/G6+ have a higher resolution display, and a higher pixel density with very slim bezels, and no notch. Yet Motorola can make and sell this device for $300 or 300 euro at a profit.

Except the G6 Plus doesn't support any US LTE bands. If I move to Brazil it'll be my first choice though, but I'll stay with my Z3 Play as long as I'm in the States.

If the G7 is that big, what about G7 Plus? 6.9 inch screen maybe?

This phone will definitely help in Aptoide and ShowBox
