The much-hyped Realme 9 Pro series is now official in the Indian market, and we got two new phones under this series – 9 Pro & 9 Pro+. In this article, we will be talking about the 9 Pro, which starts at ₹17,999 and comes with Snapdragon 695 5G SOC, a 5,000mAh battery, 64MP camera, and more.

The phone comes in three color options, and the Blue color option is unique as it changes color when exposed to sunlight. Initially, it is light Blue, but when sunlight falls on it, it changes color to Red. This color-changing feature is not there for the other two color options. There is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on this phone, a triple camera setup on the rear, and a flat panel with a hole punch on the top left corner.

As per the name, this phone is an upgrade over the Realme 8 Pro of last year, but in terms of the specs, there are some downgrades too.

First of all, there is an LCD panel on the front, not an AMOLED, which is why the fingerprint scanner is on the side. The Realme 8 Pro of last year had an AMOLED panel with a 60Hz refresh rate. Realme 9 Pro’s LCD panel has a refresh rate of 120Hz. It is a 6.6-inch display with a Full-HD+ resolution. Next, there is a 64MP primary rear camera on the 9 Pro, but the Realme 8 Pro launched with a 108MP HM2 sensor. Also, while the 9 Pro supports 33W charging, Realme 8 Pro featured 50W charging.

The other two cameras on the back have an 8MP (ultrawide) and a 2MP (macro) sensor respectively. On the front, there is a 16MP camera.

There is Snapdragon 695 5G SOC under the hood, and the base variant has 6GB RAM and 128GB UFS 2.2 storage. There is also an 8GB RAM variant.

There is only one speaker, and that’s is a downward-firing one. The phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack. Finally, Android 12 based Realme UI 3.0 runs out of the box.

Realme 9 Pro comes in three colors named Sunrise Blue, Aurora Green, and Midnight Black. There are two storage options, and here is the pricing for India –

  • 6GB + 128GB – ₹17,999
  • 8GB + 128GB – ₹20,999

The phone will be available to buy starting February 23 via Flipkart, Realme India’s website, and offline stores.
