While Motorola may hold the suspense, there are chances of this phone belonging to the Moto G9 lineup. Yesterday, Evan Blass came out with official renders of the Motorola G9 Plus. The G9 Plus in the renders showcased an upgraded design on the phone. With a rectangular new camera hump design, the G9 Plus will also get a 64-megapixel main camera. Additionally, the display will get a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera.
Hence, Motorola may bring the G9 Plus to India as the successor to the Moto G8 Plus. If you recall, the G8 Plus was the midrange offering from Motorola with all the bells and whistles they could fit at a lower price. While the G8 Plus isn’t on sale anymore, Motorola is currently focusing on the One Fusion+ launched in earlier this year. The One Fusion+ costs Rs 17,499 and comes with a Snapdragon 730G chipset.

Motorola G9 Plus speculations
With the G9 Plus, Motorola is going for an upmarket design with a rectangular camera hump. We already know that there’s a 64-megapixel main camera on the G9 Plus. The display has a punch-hole cutout for housing the selfie camera. As usual, Motorola could ship it with a version of stock Android with no pre-loaded apps and bloatware.
Speculations for the G9 Plus include a 5000mAh battery along with 15W fast charging system. Rumours also suggest the G9 Plus may come with a Snapdragon 600 series chipset similar to G8 Plus. Since the G8 Plus used the Snapdragon 665, Motorola could rely on a Snapdragon 670 for the G9 Plus.
