Design and display
The 9 family consists of various models - the company has launched the small 9i accompanied by Realme 9 Pro and 9 Pro +. In addition, the “standard” 9 5G and 9 5G SE models have also been released, for now only in India.
Starting with the older brothers, the new ones Realme 9 Pro e 9 Pro + are close to the lines of Realme GT2, sharing a very similar camera bumper. The proposed colors are three, namely Midnight Black, Aurora Green and Sunrise Blue. The latter is realized with a cover thermochromic, which changes color when exposed to ultra-violet rays.
The Pro model screen is a solution punch-hole with technology LCD, a panel from 6.6 "Full HD + with refresh rate increased to 120 Hz, also to contrast what Xiaomi did with the Redmi Note 10 series. All with a fingerprint reader positioned on the side.
With Realme 9 Pro + it takes a leap forward, switching to an AMOLED display from 6,43" Full HD + with refresh rate a 90 Hz. The larger model offers a dedicated health and fitness feature: the reader fingerprint under the display is also used for the detection of cardiac activity. In this way it is possible to keep track of the various parameters during the course of the day, without necessarily wearing a smartwatch or a band.
As for the hardware compartment of the alleged Realm 9 seems to be part of the next smartphone to be moved by Dimensity 810, 6 nm chipset with octa-core Cortex-A76 / A55 CPU at 2,4 GHz. There are rumors of two configurations, respectively from 4 / 64 GB e 6 / 128 GB.
Turning instead to concrete details, Realme 9 Pro 5G is moved by Snapdragon 695, 6 nm SoC with 660 GHz Kryo 2,2 octa-core CPU and Adreno 619 GPU, accompanied by 6 / 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4X e 128 / 256 GB of UFS 2.2 storage.

Then looking at the battery, Realme 9 Pro 5G has a unit from 5.000 mAh with recharge a 33W. The standard Model 9 also appears to have a 5.000mAh drive, but with fast charging alone 18W. For the model Pro +instead, we have a unity 4.500 mAh with quick charge from 60W, similarly to Realme 7 Pro (the latter, however, reaches 65W). The software side is not lacking Android 12 in the form of Realme UI 3.0.
The package also includes a Type-C input, a mini-jack for headphones, NFC, 5G Dual SIM support, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0.
The photographic sector of Realme 9 Pro 5G offers a triple camera from 64 + 8 + 2 MP f / 1.79-2.2-2.4 with wide angle (119 ° and macro). Among the features we find support for 4K video and the ability to record in Slow Motion at 960 fps. Moving on to the selfie camera, it is a 16 MP sensor (f / 2.5).
As for the older brother Realme 9 Pro + instead we have a triple room from 50 + 8 + 2 MP, with a Sony main sensor IMX766, a solution seen on board many 2021 top ranges and which continues to be a top choice. There is no shortage of wide-angle and a macro module, such as the Pro model; however the Pro + gains stabilization OIS. For both, however, the selfie camera is the same from 16 MP.
