Two new Motorola smartphones, the Moto G9 Plus and Moto E7 Plus, have leaked with renders showing how the devices look.
Evan Blass (@evleaks) shared the renders on his Patreon page, which show off both smartphones in two colours. Starting with the G9 Plus, it looks to come in a glossy blue hue as well as a gold or bronze shade that looks similar to the Note 20 Ultra’s ‘Mystic Bronze’ colour.
Aside from the colour, the G9 Plus appears to have a nearly edge-to-edge display with rounded corners and a hole-punch camera cutout in the top left. Around the back of the phone is a rectangular camera module in the style of the Samsung Galaxy S20 series. The camera array includes four shooters and a flash — unfortunately, it’s not immediately clear what the four cameras are.
The module says “64MP | 1.6μm Quad Pixel,” which likely refers to the specifications of the primary shooter. Motorola has offered ‘Quad Pixel’ tech in its cameras for some time. At a basic level, it uses a higher-megapixel camera sensor (say, 64-megapixels) to create a lower-megapixel image (16-megapixels). In other words, it’s combining detail from four pixels into one, which should help the camera capture more detail and perform better in low-light photography.
Unfortunately, the renders shared by Blass don’t include any other details about the specs of the G9 Plus. According to previous reporting from Pocket-lint, the G9 Plus could include 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 processor and may even be 5G capable. However, I’d take that with a grain of salt since Pocket-lint’s camera specs don’t appear to line up with Blass’ renders.
Interestingly, the G9 Plus appears to have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner/power button combo. Above the power button on the right side is a volume rocker. There appears to be a small button on the left side of the phone as well, which could be a Google Assistant key, although it isn’t clear from the renders.
As for the Moto E7 Plus, it will come in a dark blue and a really nice burnt orange colour. Like the G9 Plus, the E7 sports a nearly edge-to-edge display with rounded corners, but instead of a hole-punch camera, it has a water drop notch for the selfie camera.
The E7 Plus sports a square camera module on the back with two cameras and a flash, as well as what appears to be a fingerprint scanner under Motorola’s ‘M’ logo. The right side of the phone includes the power button, volume rocker and a third button that could be a Google Assistant key. Finally, there appears to be a headphone jack on the top of the Moto E7 Plus.
The renders don’t reveal much else about either phone. However, we’ll likely learn more as we get closer to a launch date for these devices.
