Motorola Moto G9 Power goes official with a 64MP primary camera and 6,000mAh battery
Following up on the Moto G9 Play launch in September, Motorola today announced yet another model in its Moto G series: Moto G9 Power. The Moto G9 Power is a direct successor to the last year’s Moto G8 Power and brings along an improved primary camera, a bigger battery, and a slightly bigger display.

On the front, the Moto G9 Power flaunts a 6.8-inch IPS LCD HD+ display with a resolution of 1640 x 720, which is a step down from its predecessor’s Full HD+ display. This phone’s biggest upgrade is the primary camera, with the phone now packing a 64MP f/1.8 sensor compared to the previous 16MP shooter. Other sensors include 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensors. The front shooter is a 16MP sensor.
Powering the device from the inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, a rather strange move considering the Moto G8 Power had a Snapdragon 665. The Snapdragon 662 is exactly the same as the Snapdragon 665 in CPU and GPU areas, but it does have a slightly inferior modem. The phone comes in only one variant packing 4GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage.
Another important upgrade on the Moto G9 Power is a bigger 6,000 mAh battery, up from 5,000 mAh on the last model, which Motorola claims lasts up to 60 hours. The phone charges via a 20W fast charger that comes inside the box.
On the software front, the Moto G9 Power runs a near-stock version of Android 10 with a handful of Motorola’s customizations on top. Other specs of the phone include a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, microSD card expansion support, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, a 3.5mm jack, and a single bottom-firing speaker.
Pricing & Availability
The Moto G9 Power comes in two colors: Metallic Sage and Electric Violet. The device is priced at £179 in the U.K. and €199 in the rest of Europe. It is also available in Argentina and will be available in Latin America, India, the Middle East, and other parts of Asia in the coming weeks.
