Realme 9 5G series

The microsite mentions the Realme 9 5G series will feature a 144Hz refresh rate display and 48MP primary camera. However, a closer look shows the 144Hz screen will be limited to the 9 SE only, so the vanilla 9 5G may have a slower display refresh rate.

The page also shows the Realme 9 5G will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC, whereas the SE model will pack the more powerful 6nm Snapdragon 778 chipset inside. Dual-SIM 5G support, 48MP quad rear cameras, 8.5mm thick body, and side-mounted fingerprint sensor can be deduced from the official images as well.

The handset will be available in 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options. The 48MP primary camera of the Realme 9 5G is said to be paired with a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera.
