The latest addition to the realme 9 series has been launched in the Philippines.
The realme 9i comes packed with a power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chip along with a 5000mAh battery, 33W Dart Charge, a 50MP AI triple camera setup, and a 90Hz display.
While the realme 9 Pro+ and realme 9 Pro catered to photography enthusiasts and content creators with its flagship-level camera features, this time around, the brand focused on developing battery, charging, and performance features for overall reliability.
According to the realme Lab, the 6nm SD 680 processor consumes 62% less power and affords 46% more performance than 12nm processor.
Meanwhile, the massive 5000mAh battery can reportedly last 116.38 hours of audio playback, 48.4 hours of calls, 8.3 hours of gaming, and 20.7 hours for messaging. It can also last up to 41 days on standby.
To extend the battery life further, the realme 9i features five software optimizations: Super Power Saving Mode, App Quick Freeze, Screen Battery Optimization, and Power Saving Mode that help regulate its power consumption for longer usage.
To complement its battery, the realme 9i is equipped with 33W Dart Charge technology that can top up the device from 0% to 100% in just 70 minutes.
The realme 9i is also equipped with a 6.6-inch 90Hz display that supports five refresh rates (30Hz, 48Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz) to help conserve energy depending on the user’s activity.
Other features of the realme 9i include a triple rear camera system (50MP main + 2MP mono + 2MP 4cm macro), dynamic RAM expansion of up to 5GB, side fingerprint sensor, and hi-res certified dual stereo speakers.
The realme 9i (6GB+128GB) is available for P11,990 starting May 5 in all realme official stores and partner dealers nationwide. As an early-bird offer exclusively via the realme Official Store on Shopee, the latest 9 series phone will be available for P1,200 off—or for only P10,790—from May 5 to 7.
