CEO Madhav Sheth all but revealed that there is a Realme 9 Pro+ on the way, now the company’s Twitter account has made it official – this will be the first phone to bear the “Pro+” designation among the Realme number series.
Of course, the Realme 9 Pro itself is yet to be unveiled. So far, all the official information we have on the two is that both are probably going to launch in India, not long after the 9i arrives (sales begin on January 22). We can look to unofficial sources for a sneak peek at what’s to come. Previously, @OnLeaks and Smartprix partnered to reveal Realme 9 Pro specs and images, now they have done the same for the Pro+.
The two models will come equipped with different cameras. Well, different main cameras we should say – the regular Pro will have a 64MP module, the Pro+ will feature a 50MP wide camera (custom Sony sensor) with Optical Image Stabilization. A previous leak suggests that the 50MP camera will use a 1/1.56” image sensor with 1.0 µm pixels (2.0 µm with binning) and an f/1.8 lens. Both phones also feature an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP helper, plus a punch-hole-mounted 16MP selfie camera.
The Pro+ will be powered by the Dimensity 920, while the regular Pro will get the Snapdragon 695 (both 6 nm chips from TSMC’s foundries). The Plus model will have a smaller 6.43” Super AMOLED display with lower refresh rate, 90 Hz, compared to the 6.59” 120 Hz panel on the regular Pro. It will be the smaller device of the two, that means a smaller battery too (4,500 mAh vs. 5,000 mAh), though it will be faster to charge at 65W (the 9i and 9 Pro do 33W).
Unconfirmed info from a few months ago revealed that the Realme 9 series will have four models, so far a vanilla Realme 9 is missing. All four are supposed to launch in Q1 this year.
