If Motorola was hoping to surprise the world with the Moto G7 Play, it can say goodbye to that dream. The FCC has posted its filings for the device and has revealed plenty about it. The most notable feature is the notch on the display, which isn’t unexpected, but also marks the trickling down of the design from flagship phones to midrange phones. In that notch, there can be found a speaker, front camera, and a flash for illuminating selfies.
Inside, the Moto G7 Play features a Snapdragon 632 processor with an Adreno 506 GPU, a step up from last year’s Snapdragon 400 series processor. Less happy news can be found in the battery. Motorola has shrunk the battery to 2820mAh, a major decrease from the 4000mAh battery found in the Moto G6 Play. To charge the battery, users will now use a USB-C port. It’s also worth noting the G7 Play still features a headphone jack and will also have a microSD card slot.
While some details are still missing, we can see a rear camera with an LED flash and fingerprint scanner positioned near it. Additionally, the Moto G7 Play will come in two colors of black and light blue.
All in all, the Moto G7 Play is a bit of a crapshoot. The processor is improved, but the display is notched and the battery is now merely on par with other phones.
