The recent resurgence of Motorola is partly due to a range of pretty good hardware and competitive pricing. The latest addition officially announced is that of the Moto G9 Power, which comes with a whopping 6,000mAh battery with modest internals.
It makes a heck of a lot of sense that the Moto G9 Power would come with a large internal cell, given the “Power” naming convention is generally saved for the big battery Moto models. This is actually the biggest battery in a Motorola-branded device to date, for reference.
Battery size is not everything, of course, as the Moto G9 Power also comes with some other internal ones. It relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and the massive 6,000mAh internal cell mentioned above.
An upper-left punch-hole notch is included in the 6.8-inch HD+ IPS LCD display, while the lower resolution 720 x 1,640-pixel panel, combined with the modest internals, should support longevity throughout the day. On a single full charge, Motorola touts up to 60 hours of continuous use, but it can go even longer between charges for light users.
There is a triple camera setup on the rear of the stove-top, consisting of a 64-megapixel main sensor, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The punch-hole is the home of a selfie camera with 16 megapixels. This is by no means the most impressive collection of camera systems, but on such an affordable device, it is solid.
The iconic Moto dimple also returns and, like the capacitive fingerprint reader, it has a dual purpose. There is also a dedicated, but extremely annoying, Google Assistant button on the left. The biggest downside is that it will ship with Android 10 pre-installed on the Moto G9 Power. No word was shared on whether or when Android 11 will also come to the brand-new hardware.
As for the availability of this borderline power bank phone, prices of EUR 199.99 or around $240.99 will go on sale in select regions, including Latin America and Europe. It comes in two colors: Electric Violet and Metallic Sage.
