Really? No Band 71 for G7?

Is it true the Motorola G7 Power and G7 Play have band 71 but the G7 does not? I have seen the specs listed this way on Motorola website.

Struggling to make sense of this. I have been holding on to my G4 Plus while waiting for Band 71 support. But if the top of line G7 does not have it I may have to move on though I really do not want to.

I love my Moto but my next phone will not be one. Waited a year to buy top of the line Moto G phone with Band 71. The G7 appears and Band 71 is only for the lesser phones. Stinks to be a Moto fan... a former Moto fan I guess.

Band 71 is in the 600Mhz range. A band with longer range, good for rural areas. Also it would penetrate buildings better in an urban setting.

Also noticed this.

 

Why on earth would the "play" have it, and the "regular" not? It's supposedly the same chipset, I thought.

 

Makes no sense at all. Complete miss, if true.

That is the way Motorola list the specs. I have not verified their information is correct but I have not seen anyone refute it.

In any case I moved on in a certain amount of frustration. And that frustration cost me a lot of money. (ha-ha) I bought a OnePlus 6T which arrived today.

Sure wish moto mods would tell us if this is true or not.
