Realme 9i India launch has been teased by the company on Twitter alongside a new colour variant of the Realme Book.

Highlights
  • Realme 9i India launch has been officially teased by the company.
  • The company is also expected to unveil a new colour variant of the Realme Book laptop.
  • Realme 9i image shows it will come in a Blue colour option, triple cameras and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.

Realme Book is the company’s first laptop offering in the country and it was launched back in August and is available in a Blue colour option. The brand had recently unveiled the Enhanced version with the Intel H series processors. Now, Realme India CEO, Madhav Sheth has a new Realme Book colour variant launching in the country. However, that’s not everything the top executive has teased. The image shared on Twitter also has a subtle Realme 9i teaser as well.

While the teaser image or the caption doesn’t include a mention of the Realme 9i, the Realme Vietnam social media handle has revealed the back design of the phone through a render image and the design is similar to the one in the latest image. The Realme 9i can be seen in a Blue colour option with a textured back panel, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and triple cameras on the back with an LED flash. We can probably expect the brand to launch the phone sometime later this month alongside a new colour option for the Realme Book.
