Shortly after releasing the Moto G7, Motorola is now getting ready to launch another new smartphone in the US: the Moto G7 Power, pictured above. Compared to the regular G7, which costs $299.99, the G7 Power is priced at $249.99, offers a lower resolution display, and is considerably thicker. At the same time, this cheaper Moto phone comes with an important advantage – a huge 5,000 mAh battery that lasts much longer than the 3,000 mAh battery of the normal G7.
If you’re thinking of purchasing the Moto G7 Power, you should know that Best Buy will let you save $50 on it, as it’s going to sell the device for $199.99 instead of $249.99. Most likely, this discount will be applied only if you activate the phone on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint (but that won’t change the unlocked nature of the handset).
For now, Best Buy does not say when it plans to start taking pre-orders for the Moto G7 Power. However, it mentions that it will release it on March 22 – that’s also when Motorola itself will start selling the smartphone, one week after opening pre-orders.
Similar to the Moto G7 (and the G7 Play that’s also coming soon to the US), the Motorola Moto G7 Power runs near stock Android 9 Pie. The handset features a 6.2-inch IPS display with 720 x 1570 pixels, fingerprint scanner, splash-resistance, a decent Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage space. But it’s the 5,000 mAh built-in battery that represents this phone’s highlight feature – it lasts longer than the batteries of all other smartphones we’ve ever tested and can keep the device on for up to three days (with moderate use).
