Motorola’s latest leak shows how its budget smartphones are offering pretty decent value. The entry-level Moto G9 Plus (appearing in an Orange Slovakia listing, via Roland Quandt) has four rear cameras including a 64-megapixel main camera, along with a huge 5,000 mAh battery — all for €255, or about $300.

It also comes with a 6.81-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage and Android 10. On the front left corner, there’s a hole-punch selfie camera, though no mention of its resolution.

The G9 Plus would be Motorola’s third G9 phone following the $170 G9 Play and very similar G9. The latter device features a notch selfie camera and 48-megapixel camera. It also follows Motorola’s very decent-looking mid-range $500 Moto One 5G, with a Snapdragon 765 processor and 6.7-inch Full HD+ screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ certification.

That model, along with the G9 Plus, shows that the company is doing strong work in the low- to mid-range category — even if its high-end phones like the Edge Plus aren’t setting the world on fire.
