Motorola has finally launched the Moto G9 Plus after copious leaks. The device features a Snapdragon 730G SoC, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage. Also in the mix is a 6.8-inch FHD+ display, five cameras, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a 5,000 mAh battery.

The Moto G9 Plus is here, albeit only on Brazil for the time being. Orange Slovakia briefly listed the device earlier this month, but it is now official courtesy of Motorola Brazil. As expected, the Moto G9 Plus has a 1080p (FHD+) display that Motorola has paired with a 5,000 mAh battery. The former measures 6.8-inches and sits within a chassis that measures 170 x 78.1 x 9.7 mm.

The device also weighs 223 g and houses five cameras. There is a single 16 MP sensor up front, along with four sensors on the back. The primary rear-facing camera is a 64 MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, which Motorola has complemented with an 8 MP ultra-wide, a 2 MP macro lens and a 2 MP depth sensor. All three additional sensors have f/2.2 apertures.

128 GB of storage is on board, as is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G chipset and 4 GB of RAM. The Moto G9 Plus supports dual-SIM connectivity and microSD card expansion too, although it has a hybrid second slot that houses a second nano-SIM or a microSD card. The Moto G9 Plus offers a 3.5 mm jack, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and 30 W ‘TurboPower’ charging, also.

Motorola Brazil has priced the Moto G9 Plus at BRL 2,249.10 (~US$424). However, the device is expected to launch for closer to €235 (~US$279) in Europe. It seems that the Moto G9 Plus will only launch in Rose Gold and Indigo Blue.
