The Motorola Moto G9 Plus has appeared on the Google Play Console, following its sighting on Orange Slovakia. The latest outing for the device confirms yet more aspects about its hardware ahead of its inevitable unveiling, like the chipset that has been chosen by Motorola.

It has only been a few days since Orange Slovakia listed the Moto G9 Plus, but Motorola's upcoming mid-range handset has now been seen on the Google Play Console, too. According to the listing, Motorola has codenamed the Moto G9 Plus "odessa", which tallies with information provided by XDA Developers. The listing confirms multiple aspects of the device, although most of these had already been revealed by Orange Slovakia.

These include a 1080p display and 4 GB of RAM, along with a punch-hole for a front-facing camera. However, the Google Play Console also states that the Moto G9 Plus has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, which should offer roughly a 25% uplift in performance from the Snapdragon 665 in last year's Moto G8 Plus. We have already reviewed the Snapdragon 730 in devices like the Samsung Galaxy A80 and Xiaomi Mi 9T, for reference.

While the Google Play Console does not reveal many other details about the Moto G9 Plus, Orange Slovakia has. According to its listing, the device will measure 169.98 x 78.1 x 9.69 mm, within which Motorola has included a 6.81-inch display. There is also a 5,000 mAh battery, a 64 MP primary rear-facing camera, 128 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The Moto G9 Plus will also have dual nano-SIM card slots. It remains to be seen whether the device will have three dedicated card slots though, or a hybrid second slot that houses a second nano-SIM or a microSD.

It is unknown when Motorola will announce the Moto G9 Plus, although Orange Slovakia also priced the device at €235. An appearance on the Google Play Console suggests that a release is close, though.
