Announcement. Realme 9 4G for India with new 108 megapixel camera

In the homeland of elephants and yogis, in a distant and beautifulIndia, the announcement of the Realme 9 smartphone took place, which I will call Realme 9 4G on our website for now. And pray that I don't have to rename it to Realme 9 4G India in the future.

I want to say right away that the namesake Realme 95G newcomer is not like at all. He has much more in common with Realme 9 Pro +, but they cannot be considered twins either. Plus "proshka" - it is more serious and more expensive.

What's cool about Realme 9 4G?This is a mid-range smartphone, in the $200-$250 range. And it was he who was “lucky” to become the first owner of a fresh Samsung ISOCELL HM6 sensor with a resolution of 108 MP. What is this sensor? If we discard obscure marketing details and technical terms, then we have the smallest of all sensors of this resolution. Its size is 1/1.67″. For comparison, the most popular sensor of this resolution, the Samsung ISOCELL HM2, has a matrix size of 1/1.52″. And so far no one has made a single photo flagship based on it ...

OK. The rest of the cameras are the most common. The front has a resolution of 16 MP. There are three rear cameras in total. In addition to the main one, there are also simple wide-angle and macro (8 + 2 MP).

The chipset is the rapidly becoming super popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 680. In AnTuTu, we are waiting for about 250 thousand points.

All is well with memory. 6 or 8 GB RAM, 128 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards.

AMOLED screen, moderately large - 6.4 ″ (99 cm²). The resolution is high - 1080 × 2400 (411 ppi). Refresh rate up to 90 Hz.

The battery is normal, 5000 mAh. Charging is not a record, but still very fast - 33 watts.

Other. There is no NFC module. As the name implies, there is no support for 5G networks. There is Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen.

The Realme 9 4G will cost ₹17,999 (₽19,600, $238) or ₹18,999 (₽20,700, $251) for the 6+128 and 8+128 GB versions, respectively.

Well, let's place our bets. When will Realme 9 4G arrive for the rest of the world? And will it be very different from its Indian counterpart?
