First renders of the upcoming Moto G7 spotted in the wild

The Moto G7 may be quite a while away from launch but renders and details of the device have surfaced, showing us a device with one of the most distasteful front designs we've seen this year.

Motorola released the G6 devices earlier in the year, and could be set to follow it up with the G7 phones soon. Renders of the G7 have made an appearance, giving us the first glimpse of what we should expect from Moto’s next mid-range phone.

The G7 looks, well, weird. We’re not sure what Motorola had in mind while designing the device—if these renders are anything to go by, in any case—as it manages to sport most of the worst possible design choices on its fascia. 

The G7 features a waterdrop notch at its top. Waterdrop notches are the best notch style we’ve seen, which admittedly isn’t saying much. However, at the top of the notch is a rather sizeable bezel. A noticeable bezel above the notch sounds counter-intuitive and makes the notch pointless. It all just sounds like Motorola chose to include a notch for the sake of having a notch.

At the bottom of the G7’s display is yet another noteworthy chin—one bigger than what we’ve seen on most current-gen midrange phones.

At the back—a curved glass one—of the G7 are two cameras and a Motorola logo that doubles up as a fingerprint reader. At the bottom are a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the right side are the volume keys and a power button.

The G7 could feature a 6-inch FHD+ display, 16 MP + 5 MP dual rear camera setup, 12 MP selfie shooter, and a 3500 mAh battery.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
