The Realme 9i smartphone is likely to arrive next month as the first phone in the company’s number series in 2021. The remaining phones in the series, such as the Realme 9, Realme 9 Pro and Realme 9 Pro +, may arrive. sometime later. The reason we think the Realme 9i will come first is because it is obtaining certifications from various regulatory bodies. For example, it was recently listed on Thailand’s NBTC and FCC platforms. And now, a listing on AliExpress from China has revealed almost everything about the Realme 9i ahead of its launch.
AliExpress’s listing of the Realme 9i, first seen by 91Mobiles, shows that the next smartphone will come with a 6.59-inch LCD screen with Full-HD + resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. On the back, the phone will carry a 50-megapixel main camera along with two other sensors. And for selfies, there may be a 16-megapixel camera on the Realme 9i, set inside a perforated cutout. The phone may have 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. And it can use a 5000mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging.
While all of that information is adequate enough to determine what this phone would be priced at, the list goes on to reveal how the Realme 9i would perform. According to AliExpress, the Realme 9i may come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, which means that it will be suitable for most light and heavy tasks. For connectivity, the phone can come with Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB-C port. There may also be a side-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Realme 9i, depending on the listing.
From what we’ve learned about the Realme 9i, the next phone in the number series will be an affordable device. And this could be a good way for Realme to start the year 2022. In addition to the Realme 9 series, the company will also launch the GT 2 Pro smartphone probably in the second week of January, so customers will be able to choose between a high -Final phone and a modest one.
That being said, Realme 9i and Realme GT 2 Pro are not likely to arrive in India anytime soon. It may take at least a month for Realme to introduce the Realme 9 series in India, according to some reports. One of them even said that the Realme 9i could come to India as the Realme Narzo 9i. For what it’s worth, Realme is unlikely to skip the launch of this phone in India, so if you are waiting for the Realme 9i, there is hope after all.
