The Motorola Moto G9 Plus simply goes from a rumored device to a smartphone which is inevitable. After appearing in rumors earlier this month, the new mid-range has just appeared on TUV Rheinland’s certification. The device was previously identified by model numbers XT2087-1 and XT2087-2. This time, the new certification document revealed the battery capacity and charging speeds. Motorola released the Moto G8 Plus in October last year, so we can almost conclude that the sequel is in the company’s program for a short release.
According to the document, the phone is powered by a large 4,700 mAh battery. It can be charged at speeds up to 30W. This is quite satisfactory for a smartphone that is supposed to belong to the mid-range category. Devices in this category are still delivered with 18W charging values, which at the moment are simply outdated. Unfortunately, certifications do not have the power to reveal whether the proper charging brick will be paired with the smartphone retail box.
Earlier, EEC certification suggested that the new smartphone will have 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. This is a good indication that this time, Motorola is not interested in lagging behind the competition. We see a new Moto phone with the right specifications to compete with other devices in this segment.
The supposed price appeared a few weeks ago
A few weeks ago the Moto G9 Plus was spotted online. The leakster Sudhanshu Ambhose just shared a screenshot of the phone’s price on Twitter. According to the leak, the price of the phone will start at € 227.15. This is a bit expensive depending on the specifications. All we know is that this value represents the variant with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The list also reveals that the device has dual SIM support, a recurring feature among the Moto G series.
The device most likely comes with Android 10 directly out of the box and does not include 5G connectivity. So we are looking for a new 4G smartphone with any of the current 4G SoCs available. We can not dismiss the Snapdragon 720G as the most viable option. This chipset supports 30W fast charging technology. Using it, it will put the Moto G9 Plus on the same level and in direct competition with modern mid-range phones such as the Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Realme 6 Pro.
More details will appear shortly.
