Adstoppi Blog | Motorola is putting huge battery in a new Moto G7 Power variant

Published by:


It’s been a week of leaks for the upcoming Moto G7 line, and new details of an unannounced G7 Power variant emerged today through an FCC filing, as first spotted by XDA Developers. The Moto G7 Power joins the Moto G7, G7 Plus, and the recently leaked Moto G7 Play as one of the four Moto G devices that will likely launch next year.

The Power’s standout feature will clearly be its battery: in the filing, Motorola discloses that it will have a 5,000mAh capacity. That could also explain why this year, the Moto G Play model will have a much smaller battery than usual, as the Power seems to be stepping in to fill that role.

For comparison, our review of the Moto G6 Play found that its 4,000mAh battery was able to last around three days with moderate use.

The Moto G7 Power may not actually be that powerful, though. There are rumors from XDA Developers that the phone will have lower specs than the standard G7. The G7 Power might run on a Snapdragon 632 processor like the lower-end G7 Play. It’s also been rumored that the G7 Power model will be available in four models varying from 2GB to 6GB of RAM, and 32GB to 64GB of storage.

Not much else is known about the Moto G7 Power, except that the phone dimensions will be slightly wider and taller than the other devices in the G7 lineup to accommodate for the larger battery.

On Wednesday, Facebook cryptocurrency chief David Marcus faced Congress for a second round of questioning, this time from the House Financial Services committee. As in Tuesday’s Senate hearing, Marcus faced deep concerns over Facebook’s previous privacy issues, but there was also new skepticism over the nature of the Libra project itself. “I don’t think you should launch Libra at all,” Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) told Marcus in one exchange, “because the creation of a new currency is a core government function and should be left to democratically accountable institutions, that are accountable to the American people. But at the very least, you should agree to do this small pilot program first, fully overseen by the Federal Reserve and the SEC.” Marcus declined to commit to...

Former Audi CEO Rupert Stadler has been charged by German prosecutors over his alleged role in the Volkswagen Dieselgate scandal, along with three other defendants who were not named. Stadler is accused of helping the automaker cheat emissions tests to make Audi’s cars appear cleaner than they really were as well as covering up that fraud. Stadler is the second high-profile Volkswagen Group executive to be hit with criminal charges in Germany; former Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn was charged in April. (Winterkorn was also indicted in the United States in 2018.) Four top Audi managers were indicted by a grand jury in the United States in January, and two employees are in prison here as well. The European Commission has also accused Volkswagen Group of colluding with BMW and Daimler...

Amazon loses contract with FedEx Express

Published by:

FedEx has decided not to renew one of its shipping contracts with Amazon amid increased competition between the two companies, according to CNBC. The contract in question is Amazon’s FedEx Express contract, which according to Amazon is used for air transportation of packages and is not used for last-mile, ground deliveries. As previously reported, Amazon Prime’s two-day deliveries are mostly handled by UPS, and Amazon says its contracts with FedEx to handle any other logistics, including filling the gaps not plugged by UPS, are still in place. Still, FedEx’s decision not to renew its contract with Amazon is evidence of escalating tensions between the US domestic shipping industry and the country’s largest and most dominant e-commerce company. Amazon’s success is due in part to...

Secret to being more LIKABLE on a first date

Published by:

A first date can be a daunting experience, but thankfully, it seems that there’s a fairly easy way to make sure you impress your date. A new study has revealed that daters make a better impression when they concentrate on communicating the effort behind their successes, rather than just emphasizing their talent. Researchers from Cass Business School investigated how people attribute their success on first dates and job interviews. Contrary to popular belief, the researchers found that success alone isn’t enough to make a good impression. Instead, hearing about the struggle behind someone’s success makes them appear more likable. In the study, the researchers carried out three experiments - two that emulated a job interview, and one that emulated the first date. Participants were...

Amazon is still working on a mobile home robot, according to a report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. It’s also planning to add a high-end Echo to its lineup of Alexa devices. We first heard about Amazon’s plans to build a wheeled home robot in April last year. The project is reportedly codenamed “Vesta” (after the Roman goddess of the hearth), and rumors suggest it’s a sort of “mobile Alexa” that’s able to follow users around their homes. Today’s report doesn’t add significantly to this picture, but it seems Amazon is still keen to build the mobile device. It was apparently slated to launch this year but wasn’t ready for mass-production. Engineers have reportedly been pulled from other projects to work on Vesta, and Gurman reports that prototypes are “waist-high...

The Federal Trade Commission is facing a lawsuit filed by privacy group Electronic Privacy Information Center, known as EPIC, designed to block the automatic approval of the landmark Facebook privacy settlement. Facebook settled with the FTC earlier this week, walking away with a $5 billion fine, some added privacy checks, and a stock price bump. The consensus: the FTC gave the company a slap on the wrist, and Facebook’s latest earnings report showed the social network earning three times as much in revenue as the FTC fine in just three months. Now, EPIC wants to challenge the fairness of the FTC’s settlement terms and potentially force the agency to alter the terms of the deal to better address complaints filed by individuals and consumer groups. EPIC takes issue not just with the...

A picture of a plain little egg has poached the title of the most-liked Instagram post from Kylie Jenner. The photograph, uploaded on January 4th, had the explicit aim of overtaking Jenner’s record-breaking birth announcement to become the most-liked post on the service. The egg post officially passed Jenner’s 18 million likes on Sunday evening, and currently has just over 24.5 million likes. In an Instagram story responding to the win, the account’s owner “Egg Gang” said, “This is madness. What a Time to be alive,” and thanked their followers for support. In response, Kylie Jenner posted a short video of her cracking an egg onto the ground with the caption, “Take that little egg.” Egg Gang is not the only user to have attempted to amass a huge number of likes or...

Huawei's Hongmeng OS could be revealed this week

Published by:

A new report claims that Hongmeng OS, Huawei’s alternative operating system that may or may not be able to replace Android, could be close to breaking cover. The report comes from China’s state-run Global Times and should be taken with a degree of skepticism, but contains a few key details that should be possible to verify soon enough. First of all, Huawei will reportedly show off Hongmeng OS at its developer conference, which kicks off this week on Friday August 9th in Dongguan, China. Huawei executives have said that the software is primarily designed for IoT devices, though it will first come to Honor smart TVs, according to Reuters. The report compares Hongmeng OS to Google’s long-in-the-works Fuchsia, which is similarly an experimental operating system that is designed to run...

Tinder will warn users when they travel to countries where LGBTQ relationships are punishable by law Tinder is planning an update for this week that’ll warn its LGBTQ users when they’re traveling in a country where their dating preferences could put them at legal risk. Called “Traveler Alert,” the feature will automatically hide users’ profiles when they’re traveling abroad in countries where same-sex relationships are illegal. Users can then choose whether they want to stay hidden. If they decide to have a public profile, their sexual orientation or gender identity will be removed for the time being to protect them against law enforcement or individuals who might target them. The alert will only show up if people are on the ground in these countries or if they’re using...

Libra, and the nonprofit association that will oversee it raises questions about the future of global banking and Facebook’s role in it. But behind Facebook’s ambitions to create a quasi-nation state ruled by mostly corporate interests is a secret weapon, one the company hopes it can use to create another platform used by billions of people — and generate enormous new revenue streams along the way. It’s called Calibra, and it’s a new subsidiary of Facebook the company is launching to build financial services and software on top of the Libra blockchain. At first blush, Calibra resembles a fairly standard payments company — but its tight integration with Facebook’s enormous user base could give it a significant advantage over any rivals. Thanks to its proximity to the...
