Motorola’s 2019 cheap smartphone lineup includes a 5000mAh battery option

By Ron Amadeo

Today, Motorola is announcing the new Moto G series for 2019: the Moto G7 family. There are three devices to take a look at: the Moto G7, the Moto G7 Power, and the Moto G7 Play. Along with the phones from Nokia, members of the G series are among those rare smartphones that can be had for under $400, and that makes them pretty interesting.

At first the spec sheet seems fine.
