When the Motorola Moto G first arrived in 2013, there were few phones like it. It was affordable, but had reasonably powerful specs, something few other budget phones could match. Now the Lenovo-owned brand is back with a refreshed G series. These four affordable phones include many of the core Motorola features we’ve come to love, like an ambient display and easy-to-master hand gestures.
The new family consists of the Moto G7 Play, the G7 Power, G7 Plus, and the Moto G7. The four share many features, but each targets a slightly different market segment based on screen size, camera capabilities, battery life, and, of course, price.
Here’s what you need to know.
Moto G7 release date
The Moto G7, G7 Power, G7 Plus, and G7 Play will be sold all over the world.
Brazil and Mexico got all four phones first starting on February 7, 2019. Europe was slated to get them next, but the United States snuck in before them with pre-orders opening on February 22, 2019 for the Moto G7 standard.
The Moto G7 is now available in the U.S. and you’ll find purchase links for it below. The G7 Power and G7 Play, however, are slightly behind.
The G7 Power will go up for pre-order on March 15 with a release set for March 22 in the U.S, while the Moto G7 Play pre-sales start March 29 before a release on April 4.
