What you need to know

  • Moto G9 Plus is the latest addition to Motorola's G9 family of phones.
  • The phone features a 6.8-inch hole-punch display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 730G chipset, and a 5,000mAh battery.
  • It is now on sale in Brazil for R$2,499 ($470).

Motorola today quietly unveiled the Moto G9 Plus, its third phone in the Moto G9 series (via XDA Developers). The first phone in the Moto G9 series was launched in India last month as the Moto G9. Soon after its debut in India, the phone was announced in Europe as the Moto G9 Play.

The new Moto G9 Plus has a 6.8-inch FHD+ display with a hole-punch cutout in the top-left corner for a 16MP selfie camera. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, the same chipset that powers Google's Pixel 4a.

Around the back of the phone is a quad-camera setup with a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. Like the Moto G Power, which is among the best cheap Android phones on the market right now, the new Moto G9 Plus packs a large 5,000mAh battery. The Moto G9 Plus also comes with 4GB of RAM, 128GB storage, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, NFC, 30W fast charging, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the software side of things, Motorola's latest budget phone ships with Android 10 out of the box.

The Moto G9 Plus is now available to purchase in Brazil for R$ 2.499 ($470) in Indigo Blue and Rose Gold colors. We expect the phone to make its way to a few other markets across the globe within the next few weeks. However, it remains to be seen if the phone will be heading to the U.S.
