Realme began its Realme 9 series in the release of Realme 9i. This device will not be the only one to go, as there are many other devices in development. Realme will unveil a number of new smartphones, including a Realme 9 Pro+, a Realme 9 Pro+ and a vanilla Realme 9. These two devices were tipped with specs and rendered a few days ago. The specifications for the “standard Pro” version had some gaps. We now have the complete specs sheet for the handset thanks to a report by GSMArena, which cites PassionateGeekz.com. The Realme 9 Pro is, as previously reported, the first Pro variant to abandon the Snapdragon 7xx series in three generations for the Snapdragon 6xx. However, it appears there’s a good reason.
REALME 9 PRO SPECIFICATIONS
Realme 9 Pro replaces the Snapdragon 720G used in the previous generations with a Snapdragon 695 SoC. Although it sounds like a less powerful chipset, it’s actually not. This chip uses the 6 nm process, which is more efficient and has 5G connectivity. This chip will likely be less expensive than a Snapdragon 7xx series 5G-capable smartphone. Realme has to be careful as this smartphone also features an AMOLED display, which is what differentiates budget smartphones from more expensive models. It features a 6.6 inch AMOLED screen and HDR10 support. The company has rectified the biggest mistake with the Realme 8 Pro. The refresh rate of the device was only 60 Hz.
The horsepower is not the only thing that matters. There are 6GB RAM and 128GB Internal Storage. The device does not have a microSD card slot so there is no way to expand the storage. We expect that other RAM/Storage variants will be able to access 256 GB. If you don’t have the 128GB limit, you will need to pay for it. The Realme 9 Pro has a 64MP f/1.8 camera, an 8MP f/2.3 ultrawide snapper, and a 2MP f/2.4 macro lens. The front-facing camera is again located in the top-left punch hole and has 16 MP resolution and an f/2.5 aperture.
This handset draws its power from a 5,000 mAh lithium battery and a 33 W fast charger. This is the most significant step down for this handset. This leaves out the Realme 6 Pro’s 65W charging and 50W charging for the Realme 8 Pro. That was the price to include 5G, AMOLED and refresh rate in one package. The Realme 9 Pro+ is a higher-specced smartphone.
The Realme 9 Pro+ and 9 Pro+ will be available in February in India, Europe and Asia. The vanilla Realme 9 will be available in Q2 2022.
