5 differences between the Motorola Moto G6 Plus and G7 Plus

The Moto G family has just been renewed with four new models, among which is the Moto G7 Plus. The device comes with notable changes compared to its predecessor, the Motorola Moto G6 Plus. It now has a larger screen, with hardly any frames and a small notch or notch. It also includes three cameras for the photographic section (one on the front and two on the back), as well as an improved processor and a model with more RAM and storage.

Another of the great novelties is found on the outside. The design of the Moto G7 Plus is slightly curved, offering greater ergonomics for hand grip. To this must be added a new garnet red color, which joins the blue already seen in last year's model. The company has also included more security options, such as face unlocking, in addition to camera modes with artificial intelligence and super slow motion, as well as ultra fast charging or Android 9 Pie system. If you want to know the main differences between the Moto G7 Plus and the Moto G6 Plus, don't stop reading. We summarize them in five.

1. New design and bigger screen

The Moto G7 Plus this year breaks the design of its predecessor, taking the panel to infinity and dispensing with the frames on both sides. Failing that, a small notch or notch has been added to house the double front camera. In general lines, the terminal is now slightly curved, it is more comfortable to hold and presents more current and modern lines. The rear, yes, still retains part of the design of its older brother. We continue to see a lens with a rounded shape in which the double main sensor is framed. In addition, the Moto label continues to preside over the central part. In short, we can say that it is a phone more in line with the new times, although somewhat heavier and thicker (8.3 mm thick and 172 grams of weight VS 8 mm of thickness and 167 grams of weight of the G6 Plus).

The screen of the Moto G7 Plus has grown from the 5.9 inches of the Moto G6 Plus to 6.2 inches. The resolution is kept in Full HD + (1,080 × 2,270 pixels) with IPS technology . As you can see in the images, there is hardly the presence of frames, leaving in the past the two black stripes on both sides that give less prominence to the screen.

2. More resolution for cameras

Lenovo has also improved the photographic section of the Moto G7 Plus, another of the great differences of the terminals. If the Moto G6 Plus landed with two main sensors of 12 +5 megapixels, the Moto G7 Plus does the same this year with two 16 + 5 megapixels with focal aperture f / 1.7 and f / 2.2, respectively. It is a small jump, but one that, according to the company, will allow us to take better photos in low light situations, without forgetting the popular blur or bokeh effect.

Similarly, the front camera goes from last year's 8 megapixels to 12 megapixels (aperture f / 1.7). It is clear that we will have the possibility of taking better selfies, more defined.

3. More power and more RAM

Another difference between the Moto G7 Plus and the Moto G6 Plus that is worth highlighting is found in the processor. The Moto G6 Plus has a Snapdragon 630 and a RAM of 4 GB. This year, the SoC of the G7 Plus grows to the Snapdragon 636 , with the possibility of choosing it together with a 4 or 6 GB RAM, as well as a capacity of up to 128 GB.

4. Ultra fast charging

During the presentation of the Moto G7 Plus we verified that Lenovo had not included a higher capacity battery, something curious and that does not happen often. While that of the Moto G6 Plus is 3,200 mAh, that of the Moto G7 Plus is reduced to 3,000 mAh. In its favor, we will say that instead of the fast charging of the previous generation, the firm has resorted to ultra fast charging of up to 27W, which guarantees the charging of the terminal in much less time.

5. Android 9 Pie

Finally, the Moto G7 Plus comes standard with Android 9 Pie along with Motorola's customization layer . The Moto G6 Plus did it last year with Android 8 Oreo, although currently and for a few days it can be updated to the new version of the platform without problems.
