Check out the picture of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 at the top of this article – whether you like the design or loathe it, you have to admit that the Mystic Gold color, angular camera block, and tall build make it pretty distinctive. Motorola certainly seems to be a fan as the newly introduced Moto G9 Plus looks pretty similar.
The Moto G9 Plus is the latest in the Moto G9 series to be unveiled after the Moto G9 Play (known only as the Moto G9 in India). The new phone has so far only been announced for Brazil, but it could also come to other regions – perhaps under a different name.
Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Moto G9 Plus is its resemblance to the recently unveiled Samsung Note 20 phone ̵
While the Moto G9 Plus is definitely a different phone from the Galaxy Note 20, the phones could be confused remotely if you remove the massive Motorola logo on the earlier phone.
Moto G9 Plus specifications
The list of Moto G9 Plus specs is familiar to people who followed pre-release rumors as a recent leak was directly on the money.
The Moto G9 Plus has a huge 6.8-inch FHD + screen that is interrupted by a cutout hole for the camera in the top left.
The phone has a Snapdragon 730G chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage – that should make execution pretty quick, but the processing speed doesn’t match top-end phones. There is also a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging.
The cameras consist of a 64MP main, 8MP ultra wide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth detection snapper. There is a 16MP selfie camera on the front.
There is a fingerprint scanner on the edge of the phone as mentioned earlier. The device also has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. After all, the handset runs Android 10, not the rebooted Android 11, although it’s probably too early to see the current OS land on new smartphones.
We only have the price of the phone in Brazil where it costs R $ 2,499 which is roughly $ 470, £ 365, AU $ 645. These converted prices are pretty high for a Moto G phone, so we’d expect the handset to cost less to launch in other regions – maybe even half that number. It’s also worth noting that the phone is also a blue color if you don’t like the gold on top.
If the Moto G9 Plus launches in other regions outside of Brazil (or if it launches elsewhere with a different name, or if another phone with the same name launches in different regions – both possibilities, given the confusing Motorola name trends), we’ll let you know. So stay tuned on TechRadar for the latest tech and gadget news.
