Moto G9 Plus is a mid-range smartphone from Motorola and it is the latest device in their popular G-series devices. Motorola silently released the phone in Brazil. The phone comes with a quad-camera setup, Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 730G processor, a 5000mAh battery. The Moto G9 Plus is the direct successor to Moto G8 Plus and it doesn’t follow the same design philosophy as its predecessor.
Over the years the Moto G sequence has been coming along in leaps. The Moto G9 Plus comes with many of the latest trends and it is implemented in their updated form. It’s a heavy phone with a weight of 223g -luckily not too heavy when you consider most midrange devices and even flagships. It comes with a bump at the back which is similar to what we see in most Galaxy devices.
The Moto G9 Plus boasts a 6.81-inch Full HD+ display with 1080×2400 pixel resolution and provides 405 PPI pixel density. The phone comes with a cutout punch hole that holds the camera for selfies. The phone comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
As for the camera, the Moto G9 Plus features four camera lenses at the back, and this consists of a 64MP lens with an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, it uses a 16MP lens.
You can not expect the best-of-the-best processor to keep things running smoothly at this price point. Motorola Moto G9 uses the Snapdragon 730 G processor with 128 GB of storage with only 4 GB of RAM (A compromise nobody likes). The Moto G9 Plus has a 5,000mAh battery and supports 30W fast charging technology.
The phone is shipping out of the box with Android 10 and you may get an upgrade to Android 11 in the future.
