Motorola is finalizing the launch of the Moto E7 Plus, an inexpensive mid-range smartphone that uses a rather curious hardware configurationAs instead of opting for a Snapdragon 700 series SoC it comes with a Snapdragon 400 series SoC.
It is clear that this decision by Motorola is due to an attempt to reduce costs, But to what extent is it a good idea? The differences at the architecture level that the Snapdragon 460 SoC of the Moto E7 Plus presents compared to a Snapdragon 712, for example, are notable. The former has an eight-core CPU Kryo 240 divided into two blocks, one at 1.8 GHz and the other at 1.4 GHz, and has an Adreno 610 GPU. The Snapdragon 712 SoC has, on the other hand, an eight-core CPU divided into two cores Kryo 360 High-performance 2.3GHz Gold and six 1.7GHz high-efficiency Kryo 360 Silver cores, and comes with an Adreno 616 GPU.
There is a substantial difference in terms of raw power between the two chips, but the rest of the Moto E7 Plus specs are fairly balanced, as it features a configuration of 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage capacity.
Regarding the design and the quality of finishes, we find a simple and sober line, without excesses. On the front we see an all-screen finish based on the classic waterdrop notch, where the front camera is integrated, and in the back we have a dual camera configuration and a fingerprint reader. Given that it is an inexpensive mid-range model, we can assume that it will be finished in plastic.

We do not have official details on the sale price, but since the Moto E7 has been listed with a price of 140 euros in its version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage capacity, it is expected that the Moto E7 Plus will have an approximate price of 200 euros.
These types of terminals are a good option for those users who need an inexpensive terminal but capable of offering acceptable performance and a good level of performance. The Moto E7 Plus ranks, both in terms of specifications and price, a notch below the Moto G9 Plus.
