The Moto G8 Play, an entry-level phone with a 6.2 inches screen, was launched by Motorola in October last year. Now Moto G9 Play, the probable successor of the previous Moto G8 Play has been spotted on Geekbench. The phone is still unannounced yet but the benchmarking site has showcased its key specifications. The phone is said to come with more memory than its predecessor. Though there is no official announcement from Motorola regarding the Moto G9 series launch as of yet but Geekbench hints that the company is working to launch it shortly.
Moto G9 Play Specs as per Geekbench Listing
As per the Geekbench listing, the Moto G9 Play will run on Android 10 software and powered by a Qualcomm SoC codenamed “guamp.” The processor is an octa-core processor clocked at a base frequency of 1.80GHz. By looking at the mentioned details, it is most likely to be integrated with a Snapdragon 6XX series silicon. The phone will be equipped with 4GB of RAM, which is twice what its predecessor offers.
There are no extra details about the handset at the moment but as per PhoneArena, and if history is considered an indication then the phone will sit at the bottom of the Moto G9 series. The website also predicts that it will only be sold in a few markets such as Latin America and India. The price is expected to be in the proximity of $250.
Since the company is supposedly upping the RAM count and powering the phone with a better chip, other improvements are also expected. The camera system might also get better than the 13MP + 8MP + 2MP setup on last year’s G8 Play. Similarly, the 8MP front/selfie camera might get an upgrade too. The internal storage may also increase to 64GB while the 3.5mm headphone jack will probably stay.
You should note that these are all speculations and predictions. But if the handset is announced in the coming months, we will likely get more details on this.
