Realme has finally announced that it is indeed developing the Realme 9 series, the successor to the Realme 8 series, which, at the time of writing consists of the Realme 8, Realme 8 Pro and Realme 8 5G.
The CMO of Realme, Francis Wong has announced that the company will like to share details in relation to the Realme 9 series during the upcoming Realme launch event set for September 9.
It is going to be quite a noteworthy event since it will also debut products such as the Realme 8i, Realme 8s 5G and Realme Pad in the country.
What Will the Realme 9 Series Do Differently?
As of now, there are no details on offer in relation to the Realme 9 series, but, going by the company’s past, we can assume that the Realme 9 series will include the Realme 9 and Realme 9 Pro, along with certain additional models such as the successor to the upcoming Realme 8s 5G and Realme 8i.
The launch of the Realme 9 should be interesting, since the Realme 8 offers major improvements over its predecessor, such as an AMOLED display on the vanilla variant and a 108MP snapper for the Realme 8 Pro, while retailing for under Rs 20,000. The Pro model also comes with 50W fast charging, a feature limited to flagships.
It will be interesting to see if the Realme 9 series can revolutionise the budget segment by offering 5G devices for a never before seen price and competitive specifications.
Will Realme Reveal the Realme 9 on September 9?
Realme will launch its Realme 8s 5G, a device set to push the boundaries of 5G handsets in India, as it will be the first to run MediaTek’s Density 810 SoC in the country.
The phone could also offer a high refresh rate panel. The Realme 8i on the other hand will likely offer certain specifications never before seen on budget handsets, with one rumour suggesting a 120Hz refresh rate panel.
The company will likely launch the Realme 9 series in Q4 of 2021, which falls around October-December of 2021, going by previous launches, but, there could be a shift in the launch cycle.
Apart from this, Realme is also set to launch the Realme Pad, a mid-range tablet with a sleek iPad-like design, at least as per rumours and certain specifications that will rejuvenate the Android tablet space, currently led by Samsung and Huawei products which are far from competitive. It will use a supposed 10.4-inch display, with stylus support and a MediaTek chip.
