Photo Announcement. Realme 9i 5G is India

The Realme 9i 5G smartphone is introduced in India. For the sake of diversity, it is very similar to the namesake Realme 9i 4G. It is clear that the chipset is different and the appearance is slightly different. But otherwise ... Well, the charging speed is slightly different and the notch in the screen has become from a round teardrop-shaped one. It's the little things, right?

There are no exact twins for Realme 9i 5G. Closest to it is Vivo T1 5G Indonesia. Only the Indonesian has a more serious front camera. And, it seems, there is no increased screen refresh rate. Well, the appearance, again, is not identical.

About character�Sticks.

A solid middle-class chipset called MediaTek Dimensity 810, we expect 350-400 thousand points in AnTuTu.

There could have been more memory. 4 or 6 GB operational, 64 or 128 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards, a separate tray.

The screen is quite standard by today's standards. Diagonal 6.6" (105 cm²), resolution 1080x2408 (400 ppi). Slightly increased refresh rate - up to 90 Hz.

The battery is good, 5000 mAh. Slightly accelerated charging - 18 W.

The set of cameras is quite trivial. Front camera with a resolution of 8 MP plus the classic budget trio 50 + 2 + 2 MP (the purpose of the auxiliary cameras, I suspect, with their resolution like that, there is no need to talk anymore). The main sensor is likely to be Samsung ISOCELL JN1, although this has not been directly announced.

There is no mention of the NFC module. Most likely, it is not (although it may also be announced if Realme 9i 5G becomes available in other regions). The fingerprint scanner is combined with the power button. There is Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi, and even a standard audio output.

And about money. Quite budget. ₹14999 (₽11500, $189) and ₹16999 (₽13000, $214) to starte sales for varieties 4+64 and 8+128 GB, respectively.
