Realme 9 Pro+ 5G will soon hit the global market. The BBK brand didn’t launch its highly anticipated Realme 9 series this year. It was delayed apparently due to a global chip shortage. Realme launched two iterations of its numbered series in a year usually. Realme 8 series was released in March 2021.
Its successor, the Realme 9 series was supposed to launch around July 2021 but the company announced that the Realme 9 series was being delayed until 2022. Realme’s 9 series of smartphones await official launch. However, key specifications of the Realme 9 Pro and Pro+ have already been leaked by Steve Hemmerstoffer via Smartprix.
The design is very similar to the standard Pro model. One of the major differences you can notice at first glance is the OIS branding at the back. The front display has minimal bezels at the top and the sides. However, you can see a noticeable chin at the bottom. There is a power button on the right side of the phone and volume rockers on the left side. Moreover, there is a small hole cut out for the selfie shooter at the front. On the back, we can see a triple-camera setup. There is no fingerprint sensor at the back or the side, so we can expect an in-display fingerprint sensor. The leaked render showcases the Midnight Black variant of the phone. However, we may also see 2 more color options – Aurora Green and Sunrise Blue.
The Realme 9 Pro+ 5G will have a MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G SoC. It will come in up to 8GB RAM configuration paired with 256GB storage. Furthermore, the display will be a 6.43″ OLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate. The triple rear-camera setup at the back will feature a 50MP main custom Sony sensor which will be OIS enabled. It will be accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP macro or depth sensor. The selfie shooter will be a 16MP lens housed in a punch-hole at the front. Lastly, the phone will feature a 4500 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. If priced right, it could be a great offering in the budget mid-range segment.
On paper, the specifications don’t look a lot better than the 9 Pro. The two major differences are the display and the main camera. The display will be an OLED panel as compared to the LCD panel on 9 Pro. Moreover, the OIS-enabled main Sony 50MP sensor at the back will be the other major improvement.
