Motorola Moto G7 launches in the US (earlier than expected) as a great budget phone
Earlier this month, when Motorola opened pre-orders for its new Moto G7 smartphone, it said that the device would be released on March 7. Surprisingly, though, today we received an email from the company announcing us that the phone is actually available to buy right now. At the moment, the Moto G7 is in stock only at Motorola's official website - HERE - and you can get it in either Ceramic Black or Ceramic White (these are nothing more than fancy color names, there's no ceramic used in building the device).
The Motorola Moto G7 costs $299.99, free shipping (within the US) included. The smartphone is fully unlocked and compatible with pretty much all relevant US carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Google's Project Fi, and so on.
For a handset that costs less than $300, the Moto G7 - running Android 9 Pie out of the box - offers quite a lot. The phone is splash-resistant, sports a 6.2-inch display with 1080 x 2270 pixels, and is powered by a decent Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor. Other features include a dual 12 MP main camera with 4K video recording, 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery with quick charging. Our Motorola Moto G7 review will let you know more about the device.
If you're not sure you want to purchase the Moto G7 right away, you should know that Best Buy has some nice discounts on the phone: $100 off with activation on Sprint, or $50 off with activation on Verizon or AT&T. However, Best Buy is still only taking pre-orders for the handset and will likely launch it in the first half of March.
Besides the regular Moto G7, Other two G7 models will be available in the US soon - the Moto G7 Power (packing at large 5,000 mAh battery and costing $249) and the Moto G7 Play (offering more modest specs for $199).
