Motorola's Moto G7 and G7 Plus smartphones are now something you can pre-order

In the absence of a new Z-Series device, Motorola's new Moto G7 and G7 Plus look set to lead the brand's 2019 lineup - and they're available for pre-order in Australia from today.

Danny Adamopoulos, GM of Sales for APAC Motorola, says “we are excited to continue the moto g family legacy with the widely anticipated launch of the moto g7 range of devices in Australia."

"From taking stunning photos with the 16MP + 5MP dual camera system and optical image stabilisation (OIS)  on the moto g7 plus, to the impressive all-day lasting battery on the moto g7, the moto g7 family provides high end features and performance at great value.”

“This is the first of many exciting announcements we have to share with our Australian customers. We will have more to share in the weeks to come,” Danny said.

There's also a fingerprint sensor and a dual-lens (12-megapixel + 5-megapixel) camera system on the back.

Like previous Moto G devices, the G7 and G7 Plus look to offer a pretty friendly set of specs and an even friendlier pricetag. Look for to our full review in the near future.
