UPDATE: Nieuwe Mobiel has obtained press renders of the Moto G10 and Winfuture has published a report about Motorola's Moto G30 and Moto E7 Power complete with press renders. The updated story continues below:
After a successful quarter competing in the smartphone market, Motorola is looking to strengthen its budget series. It has several new models in the pipeline and three of them have now leaked courtesy of Adam Conway and Nils Ahrensmeier.
The Motorola Moto G10
Acting as the cheapest model in Motorola’s 2021 Moto G line rather than a direct successor to the Moto G9, the new Moto G10 boasts a familiar design that consists of a textured rear panel and a quad-camera setup.
The latter, per previous reports, houses a 48-megapixel main camera that's coupled with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and 2 -megapixel depth camera for better bokeh shots.
Motorola has also fitted the Moto G10 with an 8-megapixel selfie sensor that sits above the notched display. The size of the front panel is 6.5-inches and it supports an HD+ (1600 x 720p) resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate.
As for the inside, 4GB of RAM sits alongside Qualcomm's Snapdragon 460, a 5,000mAh battery, and the choice of either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. The phone also offers NFC, a headphone jack, and a dedicated Google Assistant button.
The Motorola Moto G30
If the leaked Moto G10 details aren’t cutting it for you, perhaps the upcoming Moto G30 could be of interest. It looks a lot like the former but ditches the textured back and replaces some of the key features.
The Snapdragon 460 chipset, for example, has been replaced with the faster Snapdragon 662. On the other hand, the 6.5-inch display now supports a smooth 90Hz refresh rate like the OnePlus Nord and Pixel 5, and the notch is home to an improved 13-megapixel front-facing shooter.
As for the internal storage, Motorola is working on two storage capacities — 4/64GB and 6/128GB — that are paired with microSD card support. Buyers can also expect a 5,000mAh battery coupled with 20W fast charging.
Completing this package is a quad-camera setup on the rear that’s led by a 64-megapixel main camera. It also includes a 13-megapixel ultra-wide snapper and the same 2-megapixel depth and macro cameras found on the Moto G10.
Lastly, the Moto G30 ships with Android 11 and has a headphone jack, NFC, and a dedicated Google Assistant button.
The Motorola Moto E7 Power
In addition to revamping the Moto G series, Motorola is looking at refreshing the Moto E line with a new model dubbed Moto E7 Power that can be seen in full below.
Specs-wise, it features a large 5,000mAh battery and is powered by the MediaTek Helio G25, which is used inside the Moto E7, and ships with Android 10. Buyers from 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage as standard, although a pricier 4/64GB variant is on the way.
When it comes to the camera department, Motorola has chosen a 5-megapixel f/2.2 front camera and a 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear shooter that's paired with an unspecified 2-megapixel macro camera.
Motorola Moto G10, G30, and E7 Power colors and prices
The Motorola's next budget smartphones should all make their debut later this quarter in several colors. The Moto G10 will be available for €149.99 across Europe in the Aurora Grey and Iridescent Pearl colorways.
The Moto G30, on the other hand, is going to be priced at €179.99 in Europe and is coming in two colors — Phantom Black and Pastel Sky. The Moto E7 Power's price hasn't leaked yet, but it should be cheaper than the Moto G10 and is set to be sold in Blue and Red.
