Motorola has taken to releasing a trio of Moto G-series devices in the recent past but the company is reportedly said to be set to trim the line down to a duo next year.

Motorola’s G series of budget devices has been a popular lineup of devices over the past few years. The company released the Moto G6 Plus, G6, and G6 Play this year, with the three devices listed in descending order of price/features. Sadly, it would seem that the Lenovo-owned OEM will not be launching a trio of devices next year.

According to the source, Motorola will only release the Moto G7 and G7 Plus in 2019. This means that the cheapest offering in the line, the G7 Play, will not be coming. While earlier generations in the G series have been immensely popular, a number of fans now share the opinion that the more recent generations offer significantly less value for money. Although there is some truth to it, such opinions are always subjective.

The G7 allegedly could be powered by a Snapdragon 4xx or 6xx SoC, while the more expensive G7 Plus could opt for a Snapdragon 636 or Snapdragon 670, although we think the former is likelier.
