Finally, Motorola has taken the cover off its much-anticipated budget smartphone, the Moto E7. The phone has a similar design and shares a few details and specs with its higher sibling, the Moto E7 Plus.
The new Moto E7 has a polycarbonate frame which makes it strong and durable.
The Motorola E7 has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel with a waterdrop notch design. The screen of the Moto E7 has a 20:9 aspect ratio and promises to deliver an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels.
Being a budget device, the Moto E7 has slightly-wide screen bezels, and it houses a 5-megapixel camera in its on-screen notch.
Under the hood, the Lenovo-owned company featured the Moto E7 with the Helio G35 processor, which is the same chipset in the Redmi 9A.
However, unlike the Redmi 9A that has up to 6GB of RAM, the Moto E7 has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM. And it supports a MicroSD card slot that allows the user to expand storage to up to 512GB.
The Moto E7 has a 5-megapixel selfie shooter on its front side.
Meanwhile, on the rear panel, the phone packs a dual-camera setup that consists of a 48-megapixel primary sensor – which is quite impressive for an entry-level handset – and a 2-megapixel macro shooter.
The Moto E7 houses a 4,000mAh battery with support for 10W charging via a USB-C port, unlike the Moto E7 Plus that carries a 5,000mAh battery but supports 10W charging via a MicroUSB port.
The Moto E7 has support for other features like 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, FM radio, a dedicated Google Assistant button, a 3.5mm audio jack, water-repellant design, and it comes pre-loaded with the Android 10 OS.
In Europe, the phone costs €119 and £99 in the United Kingdom. The Moto E7 will hit other markets like Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East in the coming weeks.
