The Realme 9i will be arriving as the successor for the Realme 8i (review) from last year. The device is equipped with a high refresh rate display, Snapdragon 6-series chipset, 50-megapixel triple cameras, and a large battery that supports fast charging. Here is what to expect from the Realme 9i in India.

Realme 9i India launch seems imminent

The Realme 9i teaser showcases its blue variant. It appears to be the same model that launched recently in Vietnam. It features a textured back, a triple camera unit, and a side-facing fingerprint scanner. While the front side of the device is not revealed in the image, it will continue to sport a punch-hole display like its predecessor.

Apart from blue, the 9i is likely to arrive in black colour in India. It seems that the landing page of the phone will soon go live on Realme India’s website.

Realme 9i specifications (expected)

The Realme 9i has an IPS LCD display of 6.6-inches, which offers an FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The device runs on Realme UI 2.0 flavoured Android 11 OS. For photography, it has a 16-megapixel camera on the front and a 50-megapixel (main) + 2-megapixel (depth) + 2-megapixel (macro) triple camera unit on the back.

The 9i is driven by the Snapdragon 680 chipset and 4GB / 6GB of RAM. The handset comes with up to 128GB of storage. It is packed with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging.

Realme 9i price in India (expected)

The Realme 9i with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is priced at VND 6,490,000 (~Rs 21,150) in Vietnam. The Realme 8i with the same configuration was introduced with a price tag of Rs 13,999 in India, back in September 2021. Hence, it is likely that the Realme 9i could be priced between Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 in India.
