Realme has expanded the Realme 9 series with a 4G model that includes a few intriguing features. Not only does the Realme 9 utilise the recent Snapdragon 680, it also has the Samsung ISOCELL HM6, another 108 MP camera produced by the company.

Realme has unveiled the Realme 9, a cheaper alternative to the Pro model that the company has offered since February. Officially called the Realme 9 4G, the handset relies on the Snapdragon 680, a 4G chipset with an Adreno 610 GPU built on a 6 nm process. For reference, the Snapdragon 680 has eight CPU cores split equally between ARM Cortex-A55 and Cortex-A73 cores.

Moreover, Realme offers the Realme 9 4G with 128 GB of expandable storage and 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM. According to Realme, it has also included a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 33 W fast charging. All these components power a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that operates at 1080p, 90 Hz and delivers a 360 Hz touch sampling rate.

Arguably, the most exciting element of the Realme 9 4G is its primary camera, a 108 MP sensor from Samsung. Specifically, Realme has equipped the handset with the ISOCELL HM6, a 1/1.67-inch sensor with an f/1.75 aperture and 9-in-1 pixel binning. Supposedly, the ISOCELL HM6 has 1.92 μm-wide pixels, but only with pixel binning enabled.

Elsewhere, the Realme 9 4G has an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2 MP macro sensor and a 16 MP front-facing lens. The Realme 9 4G will be available in India from April 12. All units will ship with Realme UI 3.0 based on Android 12 and will cost at least INR 15,999 (~US$211). Realme has not confirmed whether it plans to release the Realme 9 4G globally yet, though.
