For the lenses, the on-screen notch on the Moto G9 provides shelter for an 8-megapixel f/2.2 aperture selfie snapper. The square-shaped module on the rear panel of the phones houses a 48-megapixel primary lens with an f/1.7 aperture and a pair of 2-megapixel shooters with f/2.2 apertures respectively.

The smartphone relies on a battery with a capacity of 5,000mAh. On a single charge, the device can last for up to 2 days, and it carries support for 20W Turbo Power rapid charging technology.  

For security, the Moto G9 has face recognition capabilities and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
