Motorola has been on a launch-spree recently. The brand has launched one high-end phone, the Edge+, and multiple mid-range phones, including the Edge, One Vision Plus, and Moto G 5G in the last two months. It is also planning to launch the Moto G9 Plus in the coming days. But Motorola isn’t stopping there. We have now discovered that the brand is working on one more smartphone, the Moto G9 Play.
Motorola Moto G9 Play listed on Geekbench
We have now come across a Geekbench listing of a new smartphone from Motorola. According to the Geekbench listing, the name of this smartphone is Moto G9 Play. So, the Moto G9 Plus, which has been in the news lately, isn’t the only G9 series phone in the pipeline.
According to the Geekbench listing, the Motorola Moto G9 Play has an octa-core processor from Qualcomm with a base frequency of 1.8GHz. Unfortunately, the model number of the processor isn’t mentioned in the listing. That being said, the benchmark scores of 313 points in the single-core test and 1,370 points in the multi-core test are slightly lower than that of the Snapdragon 665. So, our hunch is that the Moto G9 Play has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor that was announced recently. Although, we aren’t sure about it yet.
The Geekbench listing reveals that the phone has 4GB of RAM and that it runs on the Android 10 operating system. It also mentions that the phone has ‘Guamp’ motherboard. While the name mentioned in the motherboard section on Geekbench is usually the codename of the processor, in this case, we think that ‘Guamp’ is the codename of the Moto G9 Play.
The ‘Play’ tag is usually used for affordable phones in any lineup. So, the Moto G9 Play could be the entry-level phone in the G9 family. Hopefully, we will know more about the device as it makes it to more benchmarking and certification platforms.
