Realme 9i design revealed

As seen in the images above, this is what the Realme 9i will look like. At the front, the device will feature a flat panel with a left-aligned cutout for the selfie camera. The volume up and down buttons will be on the left side of the device, while the right side will make room for the power button. The power button will also double as a side-mounted capacitive fingerprint scanner. This also means that the Realme 9i will likely come with an IPS LCD panel.

Moving on to the top, we see the device’s microphone. The bottom of the frame is relatively busy with a 3.5mm headphone jack, primary microphone, speaker grille, and a USB Type-C charging port. At the back, the Realme 9i will make room for a triple rear camera setup housed in a rectangular module. The camera module has a slightly different texture when compared with the remaining portion of the device’s rear. The rear appears to be made up of plastic. Last, but not the least, we see the Realme logo at the bottom left portion of the device’s rear.

Realme 9i specifications

Though not officially confirmed, the Realme 9i is tipped to sport a FHD+ IPS LCD panel with a 90Hz refresh rate. The device is said to be powered by the newly launched Snapdragon 680 (4G) processor. At the back, the Realme 9i will reportedly feature a 50MP primary camera. The phone could house a 5,000mAh battery. Lastly, we can expect the device to run Android 11 with Realme UI on top.
