Sharma tells 91mobiles that the brand plans to launch all four models in the Realme 9 series in India in the month of February. However, there’s a small chance that the event might take place in the last week of January.

He further says that the company might hold two launch events to release the whole Realme 9 roster. So, there could be one event either in the January-end or February in which two or three of the smartphones will go official, and then a separate event later on for the launch of the remaining models.

Realme 9 - Realme 8i

Not so long ago, the Realme 9 Pro+ visited the IMEI database with model number RMX3393. The smartphone is expected to come with some high-end specifications compared to the rest of the Realme 9 series. The Realme 9 Pro+ was also spotted on the EEC portal along with the Realme 9i. The Realme 9i bears the model number RMX3491.

As of now, we don’t know much about any of the Realme 9 series smartphones, but we expect to get more details as the launch comes near. However, the Realme 9 Pro+ is rumoured to sport an AMOLED display, and it is expected to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset. There are also some chances that the Realme 9 Pro+ might feature a 108MP main sensor.
