Motorola has revealed an iterative upgrade to the Moto G8, launched back in March in Brazil, the Moto G9 with a bigger display, battery, and a Snapdragon 662 chipset. The device is already listed on the Motorola India page with sales kicking off as of 31 August at a price starting INR 11,499 (Flipkart).
The Moto G9 sports a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD display with 720 x 1600 pixels resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio, and 269 ppi density. At the top lies a waterdrop notch giving room to an f/2.2 8MP selfie shooter. Meanwhile, the display lacks an under-display fingerprint sensor, instead, it is at the back.
Talking about the back, it comprises a triple camera setup including an f/1.7 48MP main sensor alongside the two f/2.4 2MP sensors for portraits and closeups. The sensors get accompanied by a single LED flash.
The Moto G9 powers on a 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 662 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage expandable up to 512GB via microSD while runs on Android 10 OS.
Other features include face unlock, dedicated Google Assistant key, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The G9 uses a non-removable 5,000mAh cell that charges via USB-C port to keep the lights on. It’s available in two different colors — Forest Green, and Sapphire Blue.
