Motorola has launched the Moto G9 Play. This launch comes only about 10 months after the launch of the Moto G8 Play last year, and days after Evan Blass shared details of the Moto G9 Plus.
With a larger display, more RAM, more storage, a more powerful chipset, and improved cameras, the Moto G9 Play is a significant upgrade over the Moto G8 Play. The new phone features a 6.5-inch IPS screen with a waterdrop notch and resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels. The display has an aspect ratio of 20:9.
Under the hood, the Moto G9 Play does not disappoint. It features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662 chipset, coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The phone enjoys 64GB of expandable storage.
In the camera department, the Moto G9 Play features a triple-camera setup on the rear. This setup features a 48MP main shooter, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro shooter. This means that we do not have the ultra-wide-angle camera from the Moto G8 Play anymore. An 8MP selfie camera sits in the phone’s waterdrop notch.
Moto G9 Play Price and Availability
The Moto G9 Play will be available from around €170 in Germany and other places in the Eurozone. Motorola also unveiled the G9 Play in the UK but has not revealed the pricing there. The Moto G9 Play will also be available in India – and globally – as the Moto G9 from August 31 for INR 11,499 (about $155). The device is available in Sapphire Blue and Forest Green color options with the global version having an exclusive Spring Pink finish.
