Realme officially started its Realme 9 series with the release of the Realme 9i earlier this month. However, the big guys are coming in the form of the Realme 9 Pro and Realme 9 Pro Plus. Both devices will bring 5G connectivity, which is something that the Realme 9i lacks. Interestingly, the Realme 9 is not coming alongside these devices. This one will be revealed at a later date and it’s even below the Realme 9i. Going to what matters right now, the Realme 9 Pro and 9 Pro Plus, the duo of handsets had their launch date confirmed. According to a new leaked poster, the duo of 5G mid-rangers will go official on February 15.
That is still two weeks beyond, and considering the number of leaks popping out everywhere, we don’t think that the company will have much to reveal by mid-February. The duo of smartphones had leaked extensively in the past few weeks. We can say that we already know almost everything about the two handsets. These two are coming to compete with the Redmi Note 11 series that was recently released on global markets.

Realme 9 Pro and Pro+ alleged specs
As per the leaked specifications, the Realme 9 Pro is coming with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC. This is the very same chipset found inside of the recently revealed Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. So these two devices will be fighting in the same class. Meanwhile, the 9 Pro+ will go for the MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC. The Dimensity 920 is fancier than the Snapdragon 695, but we don’t know if this will be enough to make this device more appealing. According to rumors, these devices will have up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage. However, they won’t bring a micro SD card slot. Of course, these latter controversial details still need confirmation.
The Realme 9 Pro has a huge 5,000 mAh battery, however, Realme is downgrading the fast-charging to 33W charging after two generations of Realme Pros with 65W. Apparently, this will be exclusive to the Realme 9 Pro+ which is touted with 65W charging. The downside is that it drops the battery down to 4,500 mAh. That basically says that we can’t have everything on a mid-range.
In terms of display, both devices have AMOLED panels. Curiously, the 9 Pro+ is smaller with a 6.43-inch panel and also has a slower 90 Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the Realme 9 Pro has a bigger 6.59-inch AMOLED with 120 Hz refresh rate. Both devices have in-display fingerprint scanners. The Realme 9 Pro+ does not really feel like a massive improvement over the regular Pro. Of course, it performs better and charges faster, but that’s it. Perhaps, Realme is making the OIS, which is exclusive to the Pro+, the big deal here.
