The Realme 9 series kicked off with the 9i, a 4G only mid-ranger. After that came two Pro models (both with 5G), then the Realme 9 5G and 9 5G Speed. Several leaks indicate that this will be followed by with second 4G model, though one more capable than the 9i.
First off, the Realme 9 (4G) temporarily appeared in the list of devices on a realme.com support page. That has now been scrubbed, but not before it caught the eye of leakster Yogesh Brar and MySmartPrice.
Besides confirming the phone’s existence, Brar also revealed that the phone may have a 108 MP main camera. This could make it one of the more capable shooters in the 9-series. The current leader is the Realme 9 Pro+ with a 50 MP sensor (1/1.56”, 1.0 µm) and OIS.
Additionally, the Realme 9 (RMX3521) will reportedly offer a 16 MP selfie camera, which is on par with the rest of the series. Previous leaks suggest that the phone will arrive with two memory configurations (6/128 GB and 8/128 GB) and three colorways (Sunburst Gold, Meteor Black and Stargaze White).
We don’t know what chipset will be at the heart of the 4G phone (the 9i has a Snapdragon 680), but unconfirmed info suggests that it will be powered by a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging. This will match the Realme 9i and 9 5G battery setups.
Speaking of those two, the Realme 9 5G costs ₹15,000 in India and we expect to see the 4G model around the same price (the less capable 9i is ₹13,000).
