Motorola is on the verge of announcing refreshes to its Moto E and Moto G series, according to multiple leaks. The Moto E7 Plus and Moto G9 Plus have been revealed so far, but other models like the Moto E7, Moto G9 and Moto G9 Power should also be on the cards.

Evan Blass has shared details and renders about the Moto E7 Plus and Moto G9 Plus. While the two Plus smartphones look rather large, unsurprisingly given their names, few similarities exist between them. The Moto E7 Plus will be the cheaper of the two devices and features a teardrop design with a thick chin.

Additionally, the Moto E7 Plus has a capacitive fingerprint scanner mounted on its back panel, which sits below two rear-facing cameras and an LED flash. Blass confirmed on Twitter that the Moto E7 Plus has a 48 MP primary camera sensor, which Motorola has paired with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. A 5,000 mAh battery will power the device, which can be recharged via a built-in USB Type-C port. The Moto E7 Plus also has a third physical button, along with the usual volume and power buttons, which may be used to call up the Google Assistant.

By contrast, the Moto G9 Plus has four rear-facing cameras, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a hole-punch display. There appear to be three physical buttons on this device too, including the fingerprint scanner that probably doubles as a power button. The renders published by Blass confirm that the Moto G9 Plus will have a 64 MP primary camera that captures images at 1.6 microns. The inclusion of "quad pixel" on the camera array suggests that the Moto G9 Plus will support 4-in-1 pixel binning, too. 

Other details about the Moto G9 Plus remain unknown for the time being, including its release date. The same applies to the Moto E7 Plus. Presumably, Motorola will announce the Moto E7 Plus and Moto G9 Plus as part of a broader refresh of its Moto E and Moto G series.
