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.
