Moto G7 vs. G7 Play, G7 Power and G7 Plus: All specs, compared

Motorola launched a handful of new phones today. Here's what makes each one different.

Sarah Tew/CNET

Last week, Motorola announced four new Moto phones: the G7, the G7 Play, the G7 Power and the G7 Plus. As new members of the company's line of G-devices, these phones serve as the updates to Motorola's line of midrange phones. Moto G phones usually offer solid specs and reliable performances at affordable prices, and they often end up being our top pick for best budget phones for the year.

Read CNET's in-depth review of the Moto G7.

Out of the four phones, the Moto G7 is considered to be the main flagship. It features a 6.2-inch display, a 12- and 5-megapixel dual camera on the back, a Snapdragon 632 processor and a 3,000-mAh battery. It's available now in Brazil and Mexico and will hit Europe in mid-February. It will then roll out to countries in Asia Pacific countries, Latin America and North America. It starts at $299 or £239 (which converts to about AU$420).

The Moto G7 Plus is the slightly higher-end model. It has the same display and battery specs, but it has a more advanced Snapdragon 636 chipset. Its rear camera setup also includes 16- and 5-megapixel cameras, and it has a 12-megapixel front-facing shooter (compared to the G7's 8-megapixel one). It's also a tad more expensive at 300 euros. It won't be sold in the US, but that converts to $340 or AU$480. It will be £269 in the UK and also available in Brazil, Mexico, Australia and countries in Europe and Latin America.

Lastly, the G7 Play and the G7 Power fall a half-step below the Moto G7. Though they have the same processor as the G7, they only have one rear camera each, and the G7 Play has a smaller, lower-resolution 5.7-inch display. The G7 Power, however, stands out from the whole pack by having the highest capacity battery of the bunch. It features an impressive 5,000-mAh battery, which is expected to yield a long battery-run time. 

The G7 Play and Power cost $199 (£149, or about AU$280) and $249 (£179, or about AU$420), respectively. They will be available in Brazil, Mexico and countries in Europe, Latin America and North America. The G7 Power will have a slightly wider distribution, and Motorola will sell it in India and countries in the Asia Pacific region as well.
