Days after Moto G9 Plus appeared on an online retail website, Moto G9 Play gets listed too on Geekbench. Motorola has been dropping phones one after the other and if speculations are to believed, it will launch the potential successor to the G8 Plus too. Although Motorola has not shared any official word or dropped any hints about the G9 series, the G9 Play has appeared on Geekbench for the first time.
As per the new listing on Geekbench, Moto G9 Play could arrive with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series chipset which is rumored to be paired with a great 4GB of RAM. It is tipped to run on the latest Android 10 Software. As far as the screen size is concerned, the Moto G9 Play could sport a 6.2-inch display.
The Moto G9 Play has scored 313 points on a single-core test and 1370 on the multi-core test. For the unversed, the Geekbench scores are classified into two sections, the single-core, and multi-core. The single-core test checks how quickly the processor can complete the tasks. So the faster the processor is able to complete a task, the higher would be the single-core score on Geekbench. Similarly, the workload that is run on a single-core processor, will also be run on the multi-core processor. A lower score means that the device could have lower performance for applications.
Interestingly, the predecessor to G9 Play, the G8 Play comes with a MediaTek Helio P70M SoC. The smartphone was launched in October last year and has a RAM of 2GB and 32GB storage capacity. In terms of battery, it houses a 4000mAh battery and support for 10W fast charging. If the G9 Play comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, it will be a major upgrade over the G8 Play in terms of the processor and RAM.
While we don't have details about the camera of G9 Play, the G8 Play has a triple camera setup which comprises of 13-megapixel, 2-megapixel, and 2-megapixel sensors and an 8-megapixel front camera for the selfies. A similar setup could be expected in G9 Play albeit with improved camera sensors. So far nothing has been made official by the company.
As far as Motorola's India escapades are concerned, the company recently dropped the Moto G8 Power Lite and Motorola One Fusion+, which also received a price hike recently. The device announced at Rs 16,999 is now priced at Rs 17,499. It's watered-down version—Motorola One Fusion could also be launched in India soon.
