Realme 9 Launch in India

Following the debut of many Realme 9 series smartphones in recent weeks, Realme today announced the launch of a new Realme 9 smartphone in India. The Realme 9 is powered by a Snapdragon 680 CPU and is equipped with a 108MP primary camera, a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, and a 5,000mAh battery. Let’s take a look at the Realme 9’s pricing, characteristics, and features to see what surprises await us.

Realme 9 Price in India

The Realme 9 4G price in India begins at Rs. 17,999 for the 6GB + 128GB RAM and storage configuration, while the 8GB + 128GB RAM and storage configuration is priced at Rs. 18,999. Realme said the smartphone will launch at an introductory price of Rs. 15,999 for the 6GB + 128GB storage option and Rs. 16,999 for the 8GB + 128GB storage option. The device will be available in Meteor Black, Stargaze White, and Sunburst Gold colours and will go on sale on April 12 at 12 p.m. through Realme.com, Flipkart, and retail outlets.

Among the bank’s promotions is Rs. 2,000 immediate discount on HDFC Bank cards and EMI purchases.

Realme 9 Design

The Realme 9’s design is striking, and the firm has perfected the Ripple Holographic Design.   The phone is just 7.99mm thin, which results in a highly elegant design that is ideal for single-handed usage. The Realme 9’s glossy back panel, slim construction, and lightweight make it a perfect smartphone for daily usage. Nonetheless, the Realme 9’s overall design, display, and chassis are outstanding. Additionally, the packaging includes a rear-panel cover that protects the phone from accidental drops.

Realme 9 Display

The display is rather fascinating. A 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display takes the place of the IPS LCD screen. It maintains the same refresh rate of 90 Hz but doubles the touch sampling rate to 360 Hz. Additionally, its display is brighter (1,000 nits vs. 600 nits) and is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.

Realme 9 Performance

The Realme 9 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 CPU with a 6nm architecture. The phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, with the ability to expand virtual RAM by up to 5GB. The Realme 9’s real-world performance is adequate. Although the Snapdragon 680 chipset is a subpar CPU, it is capable of handling the load. However, it does not support 5G, which is a disadvantage of the smartphone.

Additionally, the Realme 9 comes with Android 12 and the Realme UI 3.0 custom OS. This enhances the Android experience by providing pre-loaded applications.

Realme 9 Camera

The Realme 9’s rear camera combination has a 108MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide-angle sensor, and another 2MP macro sensor. The ISOCELL HM6 is built on a new NonaPixel Plus technology (33 binning), which when paired with other advancements could result in an increase of up to 123 per cent in light sensitivity over the HM2 found in the Realme 8 Pro, according to Realme.  The sensor will let the Realme 9 take superior zoomed-in photographs owing to a technology dubbed in-sensor ultra-zoom, which will increase detail via the use of merging algorithms. The phone’s front panel has a 16MP camera.

Realme 9 Battery

The Realme 9’s big 5,000 mAh battery is one of its standout features, as is the ability for 33W Dart charging. It’s remarkable how Realme managed to cram a massive battery into a compact chassis, which comfortably lasts a day on a single charge.

Several Realme mid-range smartphones now offer 33W Dart charging. It’s time-saving since the phone charges completely within an hour and lasts a whole day. While most manufacturers no longer include a charger in the package, the Realme 9 does!

Realme 9 Verdict

The Realme 9 is a smartphone with an abundance of features, particularly in the photography section. Investing in a phone with a 108MP camera is a worthwhile investment, especially when coupled with a robust battery and a sleek design. If you’re searching for a phone with a strong camera in the sub-Rs. 20,000 price range, the Realme 9 is an excellent option.

The primary disadvantage of the smartphone is its lack of 5G capability. Given that 5G is still in its infancy in India, having a 4G phone today isn’t all that horrible. Nonetheless, as purchasers, we see smartphones as a sound investment for the next two to three years. If you’re searching for a phone to use for an extended period of time, acquiring a dependable 5G phone is your best choice.
