Here’s what the specs have to say —
Moto e7 Plus hardware specs and features
The Moto e7 Plus runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC and rocks 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which again can be expandable to up to 512GB via microSD carad. The smartphone features a 6.5-inch HD+ display with 20:9 aspect ratio. Motorola promises a “whole weekend without worrying about charging” with a 5,000mAh battery. There’s a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor embedded in the signature Batwing logo, and the smartphone is even made water-repellent and splash-proof. The e7 Plus also rocks a dedicated Google Assistant button on the side.
The Moto e7 Plus runs on stock Android 10 along with some Moto actions and gestures. Moto promises two years of security updates to the smartphone.
The camera is where the e7 Plus focuses on. The smartphone rocks a 48MP dual camera stack, much like what the Moto One Vision (review) came with previously. The 48MP camera performs quad-pixel binning and is aided by an f/1.7 aperture lens. It also has a dedicated Night Mode, along with digital zoom, hyperlapse and slo-mo video (120FPS), along with some AI-enabled features like smile shutter, smart composition, portrait mode, spot colour and more. There’s a secondary depth sensor while on the front, there’s an 8MP selfie shooter.
Moto e7 Plus pricing and availability
Motorola said the e7 Plus is completely Made-in-India and will be offered in Misty Blue and Twilight Orange variants. It’s priced at Rs 9,499 and will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart starting September 30, 12 noon onwards.
Moto e7 Plus competition and rivals
The Moto e7 Plus competes in a fiercely fought market where even a difference of Rs 500 make a big difference. As such, the Moto e7 Plus competes with the Xiaomi Redmi 9 Prime, the Realme Narzo 10A, and the Realme C12. And while the Moto e7 Power does have an advantage here with a new Snapdragon chipset and a 48MP primary camera, the display is where it may falter.
