In our previous article, we talked about the Realme 9 Pro that was launched in India today. Alongside that phone, we also got the Realme 9 Pro+. The Pro Plus variant is a premium mid-range device featuring the flagship Sony IMX766 camera sensor with OIS, MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G SOC, 60W SuperDart charging, and more.

Design-wise, this phone looks the same as Realme 9 Pro. In fact, Realme did not even change the color options. So, for this model as well, the Blue color option comes with a Light Changing back that changes color from blue to red when exposed to sunlight. The fingerprint scanner sits under the display this time because the display is AMOLED, not an LCD. The phone also gets a stereo speaker setup as compared to a single bottom-firing speaker of Realme 9 Pro. There is a Vapor Chamber Cooling System that, Realme claims, can reduce the core temperature by up to 10-degrees.

The display on the front is a 6.4-inch 90Hz AMOLED with a 360Hz touch-sampling rate and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The fingerprint scanner is placed under the display, and it can also be used for measuring heart rate, though we do not suggest considering the data from this fingerprint scanner as accurate.

Under the hood, there is the MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G SOC which is paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB UFS 2.2 storage. This is the same chip that also powers the Xiaomi 11i series in India, which too starts at ₹24,999. There is a 4,500mAh battery, and the phone supports 60W fast charging. The 3.5mm headphone jack is present on this phone.

The main USP of Realme 9 Pro+ is the primary rear camera. This is because it has a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor which we have seen on high-end phones. Moreover, there is OIS for the primary camera as well. It is a 1/1.56″ sensor with an f/1.8 aperture lens. The other two cameras are the same as on the Realme 9 Pro. So, there is an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro. For selfies, the phone has a 16MP camera.

And finally, Android 12 runs out of the box with Realme UI 3.0 running on top.

Realme 9 Pro+ has three color options named Sunrise Blue, Aurora Green, and Midnight Black. Here is the pricing for India –

  • 6GB + 128GB – ₹24,999
  • 8GB + 128GB – ₹26,999
  • 8GB + 256GB – ₹28,999

You can buy the phone via Flipkart, Realme India’s website and offline stores starting February 21.
