It’s been a bit slow in the smartphone world for the last couple of months, but things are picking up rather quickly. Not only will Samsung debut its 2022 flagship, but Realme is getting in on the fun with the Realme 9 Pro series.
The Realme 9 Pro lineup will consist of two devices, with the Realme 9 Pro and the 9 Pro+. But what is really going to help these phones stand out, other than performance and value, will be the unique “Light Shift Design” found on the back.
Essentially, the Realme 9 Pro and 9 Pro+ will feature back covers that will automatically change colors depending on the light that is being reflected off of it. When in direct sunlight, the phones will transition from blue to red “in five seconds under sunlight or ultraviolet light”. Then, the color will transition back to its “normal” color after it’s out of the sunlight.
Leading up to now, there have only been a few teases here and there in regards to Realme’s upcoming devices. We already know that the phones will use MediaTek’s Dimensity 920 chipset, complete with 5G connectivity. Additionally, it will have a triple camera system, headlined by the 50MP Sony IMX766 wide-angle lens.
Other rumored specs include an AMOLED display equipped with a 120Hz refresh rate, with one of the devices potentially sporting a lower 90Hz refresh rate. Battery life should be impressive for this mid-range series, as rumors point to a 5,000mAh cell along with 33W fast charging.
We don’t have too much longer to wait in order to see what the Realme 9 Pro and 9 Pro+ have to offer. In terms of availability, it seems that the company will be sticking to India and Europe this go-’round, but we’ll have to wait for further confirmation. Realme has confirmed that the official announcement will take place on February 16, where all of the details will be revealed regarding the upcoming launch.
