Motorola just dropped some hot last minute Friday news.

The Moto G7 and G7 Plus are coming to Australia! This is how much they'll cost, and when you can get your grabby hands on them.

The Moto G7 Is So Close To Budget Perfection

For years Motorola has had a stranglehold on the budget phone market, especially in the U.S where phone buyers don’t have quite the same access to all the low-cost handsets available overseas. It’s gotten to the point where it’s as if you could just change the headline on previous reviews, update a few numbers and specs and call it a day.

Both handsets are sitting firmly in the low-mid range handset market, which is a nice change from the barrage of $1000 - $2500 that have been announced over the past few months.

You're not going to get all of the bells and whistles of a hectic flagship phone, but that's just fine for some. If you're looking for a second phone, something for your kid or a good old fashioned burner, this might be for you. Plus, our reviewer was super impressed by it.

When it comes to the build and under the hood you're going to find a lot of similarities. Both handsets have the same storage, RAM, battery and displays. Physically, the tear drop notch, rear camera setups and blessed headphone jack also make them look incredibly similar.

The primary differences are an upgraded processor and better front and rear cameras for the Plus.
