It is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset with Adreno 610 GPU for graphics.

  • 5000mAh battery (33W fast charging)

The Realme 9i is said to have a 16MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats and a 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging support. Since it has an LCD panel, the fingerprint sensor is side-mounted. The phone will have a 3.5mm audio jack. That’s pretty much it about the specifications.

Realme 9i design

As for the design, the Realme 9i looks familiar to most Realme phones. It has a punch-hole cutout on the top-left corner to house the selfie snapper and narrow bezels. The phone has triple cameras and an LED flash arranged in a rectangular module and vertical stripes for better grip. The volume up and down buttons are on the left side of the device, while the power button with a fingerprint sensor embedded in it is on the right side. Up top, there’s a microphone. The 3.5mm audio jack, primary microphone, speaker grille, and a USB Type-C port are on the bottom. The phone seems to be made out of plastic to keep the price on the lower side.
