Motorola’s spilled the whole caboodle of photos and specs for its upcoming Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Power and G7 Play phones ahead of the official Feb. 7 launch. Techhnews en Español discovered the pages on the company’s Brazilian web store for Motorola employees (the site 404s). Motorola has since taken the site down after our colleagues let the company know that the store was visible, but not before our team got the goods. 

The Moto G family is Motorola’s most important line of budget phones. Last year’s Moto G6 was Techhnews’s top low-cost phone of the year, a pattern that Motorola has been able to capitalize on for the past several years by keeping costs low year after year while also improving the specs. For example, the $250 Moto G6 took decent portrait photos with its dual rear cameras, and ran on the most current form of Android. Unlike phones in the middle and high tiers, these budget phone prices have not crept up since 2016. 

Budget phones may not be as lucrative for a brand as high-end devices, but they are a key part of the industry, especially for emerging markets. Brands hope that individuals will remain loyal as they move through their lifetime to pricier models. Motorola will supply Verizon’s first 5G phone, the Moto Z3, and is rumored to be announcing a foldable Razr.

The phones all feature slim bezels, a headphone jack and run Android Pie. See the full specs chart below.

Motorola didn’t share the phones’ pricing or availability, but Techhnews en Español did contact Motorola to confirm the specs. Motorola responded, “Thanks for warning.”

Motorola’s G7 launch, which should fill in the rest of the details, will take place Feb. 7 in Brazil.
