Update | Realme's Pad Mini is coming to Europe with the 9 and new 9 5G in tow
Update: The 9 and 9 5G have now been added to Realme's EU website. Their launch confirms that the latter is indeed a different version from that sold under the same name in India. It is in effect a 4GB RAM version of the 9 Pro with the same 120Hz LCD display, albeit with a different 50MP main camera (the Samsung ISOCELL JN1) and downgraded 18W charging for its 5,000mAh battery.
The European 9 5G starts at €260 for a SKU with 64GB of internal storage and can be pre-ordered from now. The 4G/LTE-only 9, on the other hand, retains all of its specs from its original Indian launch (108MP main shooter included), and now goes for €280 for a single 6/128GB configuration.
Original Article: The Realme 9 Pro 5G smartphone is currently available on the OEM's official web-store for the European market, as is its Plus variant - and in Free Fire special edition form, no less. Now, their collection is to be completed, as their vanilla 5G and non-5G counterparts are coming to join them.
The latter may be 4G/LTE-only, but also has a new 108MP main camera sensor from Samsung; accordingly, there are European Realme fans who might well find it a worthwhile buy - for the right price, hopefully. The 9 5G, on the other hand, is not to be the phone sold under that name in India.
Instead, it is to have the same Snapdragon 695 SoC of the 9 Pro, and seems to strongly resemble this pre-existing phone too. However, Realme says nothing about the rest of its specs as yet, only hinting that it could emerge as the cheapest phone with its processor in Europe on its launch. This would put it at under €320 (~US$335), for a start.
Finally, these details are to be revealed alongside the Realme Pad Mini, which will join its full-sized tablet sibling on the EU website. However, again, the OEM aims to keep the slate's configurations and pricing a secret until its launch on May 12, 2022 at 13:00 CET.
