For under RM1000, there is a sea of great value smartphones to choose from, but that doesn’t mean that every of these phones deliver a great experience and practical features, and fortunately this doesn’t apply to the realme 9, the latest sub RM1000 mid-range phone from realme has a lot to offer that its competition doesn’t, and here are reasons why you should consider one.
The best and strongest mid-range phone display
Sporting a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate, the realme 9 has the best display of its class that produces vivid colors and great contrast, while offering a buttery smooth experience when you scroll webpages and social media, it also has a 2.5D glass that’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which is more resistant to drops and scratches.
The realme 9 is also one of the few sub RM1000 phones that has Widevine L1 certification, which means you can stream Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in Full HD without any issues.
The First Samsung HM6 108MP ProLight Camera
The realme 9 is the first smartphone of its class to come equipped with a 108MP Samsung HM6 sensor for its primary shooter, which features the Nonapixel Plus Technology that combines 9 pixels into one and captures images at an effective 12MP resolution, this greatly improves light sensitivity when taking photos in low light and complemented with realme’s AI imaging algorithm, low light photos have never looked this good on a mid-range phone.
All-round performance with excellent power efficiency
Powered by a Snapdragon 680 system-on-chip that’s fabricated on an efficient 6nm process, the realme 9 offers an all-round mid-range performance that you can depend on for most of your productivity tasks, along with the 5000mAh battery and 33W SuperDart fast charging, the phone easily offers a day of heavy usage and gets charged from single digit battery levels in just an hour.
Sleek and pretty enough to fit in any pockets
