One of the upcoming Realme 9 series phones has surfaced on Geekbench, confirming a few of the specs that got leaked earlier.

Based on the details spotted on the benchmarking platform, the Realme 9i runs Android 11 and is indeed powered by the 6nm-based, power efficiency-focused Qualcomm Snapdragon 680. Recall that the 4G chip was announced alongside the Snapdragon 778G Plus, Snapdragon 695, and Snapdragon 480 Plus two months ago. The SoC is backed by an Adreno 610 GPU and is paired with 4GB of RAM.

This development comes after the Realme 9i was spotted at the brand’s official store on online-shopping platform AliExpress. The listing revealed that the smartphone is equipped with 128GB of storage, a 6.59-inch screen with a 2,400 x 1,080 resolution, a 50-megapixel main rear camera, and a 16-megapixel selfie shooter. The Realme device likewise features face unlock, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 5,000mAh battery that can be fast-charged up to 33 watts over a USB Type-C port.

Leaked and leaked again. We can feel it coming soon. Expected launch: January 2022

An even-earlier leak claimed that the Realme 9i’s display has a punch hole on its upper-left side and can render images up to 90 times per second. And the design is similar to that of the Realme GT Neo2, which was launched in China in September.

We wonder if the Realme 9i will become available in the Philippines. But because the Realme 8i was released locally, there’s a good chance that the successor will be offered here, too.
