Editor Rating

Realme 9 5G is an entry-level smartphone sold by the brand, which features a simple and understated design that is highlighted by the glossy gradient on the back that looks like the reflection of an ocean wave taken from the ocean floor. This makes the smartphone look a lot more premium than its price tag. You have a solid plastic body with a plain back and flat front and a triple camera array that is housed inside a square-shaped camera module that is slightly raised from the back. The only thing else that is featured on the back is the Realme brand name. On the front, you get a nice and vibrant display that is super responsive and offers decent visibility even in direct sunlight.


Bottom Line

Realme 9 5G is a special model released in the Indian market initially, which features a lot of the same design and features, but gets a new processor that enables 5G connectivity. Sadly, you do not get any wireless charging.
