Following a long hype campaign, the Realme 9 Pro series dropped on schedule yesterday. It features the Realme 9 Pro and Realme 9 Pro+. Both phones are currently available in India, but they will be rolled out to Pakistan soon. We’ll review what this duo has to offer.

Realme 9 Pro

Realme 9 Pro has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 inside. It’s a brand new 5G chip, built on a 6nm process node. You get up to 8GB of virtually expanded memory and 128GB UFS storage (expandable via microSD.) A 5000 mAh battery powers the Pro, supported by 33W DART Charge. Realme UI x Android 12 runs on this hardware.

The display is a 6.6” IPS LCD featuring a 1080P resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. We find a hole punched into this panel, housing a 16MP shooter. The fingerprint scanner doubles as the side power key. 

As for the design, Realme went back to its roots. The glassy, mirror-finished casings have fluid light trails.

You can pick from Midnight Black, Aurora Green, and Sunrise Blue. The Sunrise Blue shifts to a pink-orange hue when exposed to sunlight.

The shell is chamfered and contains a triple-lens cluster on a rectangle. We’re looking at a 64MP wide, 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP macro shooter. Realme 9 Pro starts from ~ Rs. 49,000.

Realme 9 Pro+

The Pro+ is much more premium than the Realme 9 Pro. Its 6.43” 1080P OLED panel is brighter, sharper, and more vivid.

It’s more responsive, thanks to the 360Hz touch sampling rate. And the 90Hz refresh rate makes the visuals smoother. Plus, Realme has hidden a fingerprint scanner below this display.

The camera system on the Realme 9 Pro+ is identical to the Pro model, except for the 50MP OIS-assisted wide camera. The Dimensity 920 5G inside the Realme 9 Pro+ is also more powerful. A 4500 mAh battery backs up the phone. 

And you get 60W charging support and a 65W power brick in the box.

Also included in the build are a 3.5mm audio jack, dual stereo speakers, refined vibration motor, and vapor chamber cooling. Realme 9 Pro+ starts from ~ Rs. 58,000.
