When the Motorola Moto G first arrived in 2013, there were few phones like it. It was affordable, but had reasonably powerful specs, something few other budget phones could match. Now the Lenovo-owned brand is back with a refreshed G series. These four affordable phones include many of the core Motorola features we’ve come to love, like an ambient display and easy-to-master hand gestures.
The new family consists of the Moto G7 Play, the G7 Power, G7 Plus, and the Moto G7. The four share many features, but each targets a slightly different market segment based on screen size, camera capabilities, battery life, and, of course, price.
Here’s what you need to know.
Moto G7 release date
The Moto G7, G7 Power, G7 Plus, and G7 Play will be sold all over the world.
Brazil and Mexico got all four phones first starting on February 7, 2019. Europe was slated to get them next, but the United States snuck in before them with pre-orders opening on February 22, 2019.
Moto also plans to sell the phones in Australia, India, the Asia Pacific, and throughout much of Latin America. Specific release dates in these markets are unknown, other than that we can expect them sometime in the spring.
Moto G7 price and availability — U.S.
The Moto G7 family will set you back between $199 and $299 in the U.S. Unfortunately, the Moto G7 Plus won’t available here.

You’ll be able to get the Moto G7 unlocked from other retailers such as Walmart and Amazon soon. It will also reach several prepaid carriers including Google Fi, Republic Wireless, and Ting.
The Moto G7 Power will be sold by T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Cricket Wireless (as the Moto G7 Supra), Consumer Cellular, Republic Wireless, Ting, and Xfinity Mobile. Shortly after it hits carriers, the G7 Power will go on sale unlocked through Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart, and Amazon.
The G7 Play will be sold by Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Republic Wireless, and Ting. Like the others, it will be sold unlocked by Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart, and Amazon eventually as well. Exact timing on all these releases will depend on the carrier and retailer in question.
