Leaked photos suggest the next Moto G series phone will have a waterdrop-style notch

The leak has come well ahead of the regular release date for a G series phone.

Moto G7 and Motorola One leak
  • Photos of a mystery Moto G series phone have leaked online.
  • The pictured device has a small waterdrop notch and a dual camera setup.
  • The photos have leaked well ahead of the Moto G series’ usual spring release date.

A Weibo user has leaked photos that show an unreleased Moto G series phone (via XDA Developers). The pictured phone has a waterdrop-style notch, thin bezels, and a small chin. The rear of the phone is finished in a glossy red color and you can clearly see a dual camera setup. Additionally, there is a fingerprint sensor in the middle of the phone under the dual-camera setup.

While the Weibo user claims the photos are of the Moto G7, one picture says it is the Moto G6 Plus. However, the Moto G6 Plus has already been released and does not look like the device in the pictures.

Should the pictures indeed be the Moto G7, they have leaked well ahead of the usual spring release date for a Moto G series phone. The Moto G6 was first released in April this year, meaning it has only been available for four months.

The timing of the leak, plus the labelling on the software, throws some doubt on claims that the phone is the Moto G7. Another possibility could be that the device is an updated version of the Moto G6. Whether the phone is the Moto G7 or an updated Moto G6, it would be the first time a phone in the series has sported a notch.

As well as the pictures of the alleged Moto G7, there is a third picture that is said to be the Motorola One. This could be the rumored sibling of the anticipated Motorola One Power, or simply the Motorola One Power itself. Other than the alleged design of the phone, which was first leaked months ago, the software suggests the phone will run Android 8.1 Oreo and not Android 9.0 Pie.
