Motorola’s well-known midrange phone, the Moto G series, has received its successor. The Moto G9 comes with a larger screen, a generous battery capacity and a 64 MP camera on the back.
Motorola Moto G9 Plus
The Moto G series has been a well-known mid-range series for many years. Motorola always tries to give a lot of value with these devices for an accessible price tag. We have already seen numerous variants in the Moto G range, but the standard model is the ‘G Plus phone’ these days. The new Moto G9 Plus has now been officially announced, XDA Developers know.
Let’s start by looking at the LCD screen which has become a lot bigger with its 6.8-inch size. The waterdrop notch is gone and now there is a small notch in the top left corner. This was also apparent from leaked images of this phone. The panel also has a resolution of 2400 by 1080 pixels. For the time being, it is only known about the housing that a fingerprint scanner is integrated in the power button and there is also a 3.5 mm audio jack.
Performance, battery and cameras
That brings us to the chipset of the Moto G9 Plus and that is the Snapdragon 730 from Qualcomm or a typical processor intended for the middle segment. The phone still has 4 GB of RAM, but a generous 128 GB of storage. Motorola is also introducing a nice upgrade of the battery because that is now a 5000 mAh model. It is remarkable that Motorola is also exchanging the 15-watt charger for a more interesting 30-watt fast charger. The phone will be released with Android 10.
Finally, there is the camera, four copies on the back. The base is formed by a .64 MP sensor, but there is also an 8 MP wide-angle camera, a 2 MP macro camera and a 2 MP depth camera for photos with blur. At the front, we find a 16 MP camera in the screen notch.
The Motorola Moto G9 Plus comes in the colors Rose Gold and Indigo Blue for the equivalent of 397 euros. For now, the phone has only been announced in Brazil and it is not yet known when we will see it and for what price. Techlargest was recently also able to test another middle class from Motorola: the Moto G 5G Plus. You read here our review.
