Motorola has announced a new smartphone, the Moto G9. This is the company’s brand new mid-range smartphone, and it got announced in India.

The Motorola Moto G9 features a flat display, and a waterdrop display notch. Its ‘chin’ is a bit thicker than the rest of its bezels on the front, while all of its physical buttons are placed on the right side.

The Motorola Moto G9 comes with a headphone jack

A 3.5mm headphone jack is a part of the package here, it’s placed at the top of the device. This smartphone features four cameras overall, three of them are on the back.


All of those cameras are a part of the same camera module which is centered on the back. Along with three cameras, you’ll notice an LED flash inside that camera module as well. A fingerprint scanner sits right below the phone’s cameras.

The back side of the device is curved towards the side. We still do not know what materials Motorola used to make this phone, but it’s possible we’re looking at polycarbonate (plastic), and not glass. We’re still not sure.

Now, this phone feature a 6.5-inch HD+ (1600 x 720) LCD Max Vision display. It’s a fairly large display, and it’s flat. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 662 64-bit octa-core processor. The very same chip OnePlus’ upcoming mid-range phone is rumored to include.

The Moto G9 comes with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. You can expand this phone’s storage up to 512GB via a microSD card.

A huge battery is included here

A large 5,000mAh battery is also a part of this package. You can recharge that battery using Motorola’s 20W Turbopower charging. That charging may not be as far as some other charging technologies, but keep in mind this is a budget phone. The phone does not support wireless charging, by the way.

There are two SIM card slots included here, and one of them is a hybrid one. You can use either two SIM card slots at the same time, or one SIM card slot and use the other to include a microSD card.


The phone is splash resistant thanks to P2i coating. This handset support 4G LTE with VoLTE, and you can use it on both SIM cards at the same time. Bluetooth 5.0 is also included.

A 48-megapixel main camera (f/1.7 aperture) sits on the back of this phone. It is backed by a 2-megapixel macro camera (f/2.4 aperture), and a 2-megapixel depth camera.

A single 8-megapixel camera (f/2.2 aperture) sits on the front side of the device. The phone measures 165.21 x 75.73 x 9.18mm, and weighs 200 grams. That large battery is the main reason this phone is so heavy.


The Motorola Moto G9 comes in Forest Green and Sapphire Blue color options. The phone is priced at INR11,499 ($154) in India, and will go on sale from August 31. It remains to be seen if this phone will make its way to other markets, but it probably will.
