Qualcomm processor and 6.5-inch screen

Moto G9 Play: 6.5-inch HD+ screen, Snapdragon 662, 4GB RAM ...

The Moto G9 Play bets on the Snapdragon 662, a platform somewhere between the mid-range and lower-middle range, with a maximum frequency of 2 GHz. This processor is accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory, which we can expand by microSD cards up to 512 GB. At the hardware level, we have extras such as the fingerprint reader, located in the Motorola logo itself. 

The battery is 5,000mAh with a fast 20W charge, and the company promises up to two days of autonomy with it.

The greatest strength of this Motorola is its large 5,000mAh battery. The company promises up to two days of use with it

Regarding the panel, we have IPS technology with HD + resolution. It is a fairly widescreen, with a 20: 9 aspect ratio and a small drop notch at the top. The pixel density is 269 ppi, something low even taking into account that we are facing a predictably cheap mobile in case of its arrival in Europe. It is a large device, 165.21 x 75.73 x 9.18 mm, and weighing 200 grams. The finish is plastic and has a coating to repel water according to Motorola, although there is no talk of any IP certification.

Three cameras to photograph them all

On a photographic level, the Moto G9 Play does not want to be left behind in the number of cameras. This device bets on a 48 megapixel main sensor, which will offer 12 megapixel photographs after applying the 4-in-1 pixel grouping, known as Pixel Binning. The second sensor is 2 megapixels, responsible for obtaining information on the depth of field. Finally, we have a third 2 megapixel sensor for macro photography. Clear absence of the wide angle in this Moto G9 , which bets on the triple camera but has less versatility than a good part of its direct competitors. Regarding the front camera we have 8 megapixels.

Price and versions of the Moto G9 Play

The Motorola Moto G9 Play has just been introduced and will be available in Europe. It will be sold in the colors Sapphire Blue and Forest Green at a price of 199 euros.
