The standout feature of the Realme 9 is its Samsung ISOCELL HM6 camera sensor, which has an impressive 108-megapixel resolution. Plus an ultra-wide-angle lens with a 120-degree field of view and a 4cm macro camera.
The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset, which Realme claims is “guaranteed to provide users with a smooth smartphone experience”. The screen size is 6.4 inches, the refresh rate is 90Hz, and the resolution is full HD (1080p).
The device weighs 178 grams and is 7.99mm thick, while the rear panel features a striking “ripple holographic design” that is said to be “inspired by the light of the desert”. Depending on how the light catches it, you’ll see different colors reflected back.
Realme 9 5G
The Realme 9 5G apparently offers 5G connectivity thanks to its Snapdragon 695 5G chipset’s modem, which is the phone’s main selling point. In fact, this processor has “the highest CPU clock speed in the segment” (2.2GHz) and is the most affordable on this phone.
Here again there’s a gleaming rear panel, but the color options are limited to black and white.
The front-facing camera sensor here has a 50-megapixel resolution, paired with two 2-megapixel sensors; one for a macro lens and the other for a black-and-white portrait lens. There is a 16-megapixel selfie camera on the front.
The battery capacity is 5000mAh and supports 18W fast charging.
Realme Pad Mini
According to the manufacturer, the new Realme Pad Mini apparently offers “the best overall experience in the Android Mini tablet segment”. It runs on a Unisoc T616 processor and has a large 6400mAh battery (also supports 18W fast charging).
The display size of this model is 8.7 inches with a resolution of 1340x800p; thin bezels give it an 84.57% screen-to-body ratio.
The base model has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable up to 1TB via Micro SD. The rear camera has an 8-megapixel resolution and can shoot 1080p video.
