Unfortunately, there’s no clarity about the smartphone’s official name at the moment. While the Realme 9 4G is a strong possibility, the upcoming device could end up being an altogether new handset with a name like Realme 9 SuperZoom. Such a branding is not impossible as the SuperZoom moniker has been used in the past by the brand for its camera-centric smartphone. Moreover, the Realme 9 SE is the first-ever SE model for the brand, so it is certainly experimenting with the naming of the 9 series. Whatever the case may be, we will get to know the official name in a month.

The Realme 9 5G and 9 SE both have triple camera systems headlined by 48MP primary sensors. On the other hand, Realme 9 Pro gets a 64MP primary sensor and the 9 Pro+ gets a 50MP IMX766 sensor. This means the upcoming Realme 9 series handset will take the lead in the camera department for the series. In fact, Realme 8 Pro is the only smartphone from the company to come with a 108MP camera till now.
