A couple of days ago, Motorola disclosed its latest budget-friendly smartphone dubbed Moto E7 Plus in Brazil. Now, it’s time for global customers to enjoy this nice piece of affordable specs. The device’s biggest highlights are the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC which is an excellent budget-friendly chipset with Cortex-A73 cores and a massive 5,000mAh battery. Of course, the handset has much more to offer for users in this particular segment.
Moto E7 Plus specifications
The Moto E7 Plus honors its name with a 6.5-inch LCD. This panel only has HD+ resolution, but that’s not a big surprise in the price segment where it belongs. On the display top, we have a waterdrop notch that serves as a house for the 8MP selfie shooter. Moving around to the back, we have a dual-camera setup. It may not come with many sensors, but the primary sensor is a capable 48MP unit that gets help from a 2MP depth reading sensor. The rear also serves as a house for the fingerprint scanner that doubles as Motorola’s logo.
Gizchina News of the week
Under the hood, the Moto E7 Plus packs Qualcomm’s latest offering for the budget segment – the Snapdragon 460 SoC. This chipset features an Octa-Core CPU split in two cluster architecture. It features 4 x Kyro 240 Gold cores clocked at 1.8GHz plus 4 x power-efficient Kyro 240 Silver cores clocked at 1.8GHz. This chip is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of Internal Storage. The storage amount can be further expanded via a microSD card slot.
The phone draws power from a massive 5,000mAh battery. However, users will be limited to a rather slow 10W charging. The reason? Well, we’re in 2020 but Motorola still believes that micro USB ports are enough for a budget device. That’s a very unfortunate choice. Other features include Bluetooth 5.0, Hybrid Dual-SIM tray, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi (2.4GHz), and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone ships with Android 10 straight out of the box and of course will be eligible for a future Android update.
Pricing and Availability
The new handset is available in Europe for €149, that’s a reasonable price for what it offers, but if you compare it with devices from China, the recently released Realme V5 offers 5G and costs just a little more than this handset. Users in the UK will able to purchase it for £129.
Worth noting that the device is yet to appear on Motorola’s official website and Amazon UK.
