Motorola may have recently just announced a new Moto G9 Play, which forms part of their budget phone line-up, but it appears that it wants to offer something that provides a little bit more bang for your buck. According to new leaked listing on Orange Slovakia’s website, that phone will be Motorola G9 Plus.
Motorola devices have not exactly set the world alight as of late, with many of their most popular phones like the Edge Plus or foldable Razr struggling to compete with giants like Samsung, Huawei and Apple. In tackling the budget market though, they may be able to make a dent and bring some of their good ideas to a place where they know their competitors are not bringing their A-game.
The Moto G9 Plus promises a fantastic battery life with a massive 5,000 mAh battery – something which even many high-end devices don’t provide – and a 64-megapixel main camera, which is also a decent offering for the price range. The device will come with a 6.81-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage (expandable via microSD), and run Android 10 out of the box. What we don’t know is the processor the phone will be using though considering the existing Moto G9 Play has a Snapdragon 662 processor, I wouldn’t be surprised if this device offers the same. And with a battery of that size, it should last a fair amount of time given that processor. Something phones tend to not do these days.
The rumoured cost of this device according to the leak is around $300 (R5500) which is about the right price for something that is bridging that high-end budget gap. It’s still just a leak for now with Motorola not officially announcing anything yet, but we all know how these days leaks are pretty much as good as the real thing.
