Motorola has given important steps in 2020. The brand made its comeback to the flagship-grade with the Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge+. However, the company still has a big focus in the mid-range and budget segments. Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed some of its launches, but the company is finally reaching stability. Today, it’s time for the Moto E7 to get a proper release a couple of months after its brother Moto E7 Plus went live. The handset will cost €110-120 and has competitive specs if you’re in the market for a super budget device.
Moto E7 specifications
Under the hood, the Moto E7 packs the MediaTek Helio G25 chipset. This carries “gaming” on its name, but we’re not sure about its gaming capabilities. It’s an Octa-Core chipset featuring eight Cortex-A53 cores and an IMG Ge8320 GPU at 650MHz. The device is paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of Internal Storage. You can expand this amount with a microSD card. The specifications come around a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with an HD+ resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The devices come with the usual Waterdrop Notch solution.
The Moto E7 camera department has a main 48MP sensor with a bright f/1.7 aperture and 1.6um pixels with binning. Worth noting that the main shooter comes alongside a 2MP module for capturing macro shots. On the front, we have a modest 5MP selfie snapper with f/2.2 aperture and 1.22um pixel size. The video recording capabilities are limited to 1080 videos at 30 frames per second.
4,000mAh battery but no fast-charging
The Moto E7 draws power from a 4,000mAh battery which is down from the Moto E7 Plus 5,000mAh unit. According to Motorola, the E7’s battery is enough for 36 hours of usage. We’re not sure about that, certainly, this can’t be achieved with normal usage, this probably is the stand by time. Unfortunately, the phone will take a long time to charge thanks to the 10W charger. Curiously, it brings a USB-C Port, but still, Motorola decided to leave fast-charging for the G-series. The phone also comes with a water-repellent coating to keep it safe from accidental splashes.
Other features include global LTE bands, Dual-SIM Capabilities (Hybrid Slot), rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi (just 2.4GHz), 3.5mm headphone jack, and FM radio.
The handset will come in Aqua Blue, Satin Coral, and Mineral Gray colors. The device will reach the European market in December. It should also reach other places like Brazil in the same month. Motorola will add a free silicon case depending on the region.
