Realme 9 Everything you need to know

Realme has so far introduced the latest budget smartphone series in the Realme 9 series with six phones – although not all of them are available everywhere.

However, the phones offer impressive budget options with a few unique features and surprisingly powerful features, and the company still has much more to come.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Realme 9 series.

When will Realme 9 phones be released?

Realme has introduced Realme 9, 9 5G, 9i, 9 Pro and 9 Pro + in Europe and Asia, and you can buy it now, including in the UK and India. It should be noted that the European and Indian versions of 9 5G actually offer different features, which we will explain later.

Another phone – Realme 9 5G SE – is also available in India, but not elsewhere.

As in previous releases, it seems very difficult for US customers to buy any of the Realme 9 devices other than imports.

Realme has also introduced the Realme GT 2 and GT 2 Pro flagships globally, which are available in similar markets.

How much do Realme 9 phones cost?

So far, the Realme 9 series with six models has a number of prices. To simplify everything, we present starting prices for each phone in the currencies we know so far:

  • Realme 9: £249/€279₹17,999
  • Realme 9i: £199/€219/₹12,999
  • Realme 9 5G: £249/€259/₹14,999
  • Realme 9 5G SE: ₹19,999
  • Realme 9 Pro: £299/€319/₹17,999
  • Realme 9 Pro+: £349/€379/₹24,999

What will be the features and design of Realme 9?

So far, the Realme 9 series includes six models, each of which we will consider separately.

Realme 9

Let’s start with the usual Realme 9, although this is its sixth announcement.

Realme 9

The 90Hz display is an AMOLED with a built-in fingerprint scanner – in this case, it also acts as a heart rate scanner.

The chipset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, with up to 8 GB of RAM and 33 W of charging. Inevitably, it is limited to 4G; this is a substitute for better features elsewhere compared to 9 5G.

The camera also sounds impressive. It has a 108Mp main camera equipped with Samsung’s ISOCELL HM6 sensor – previously seen on any Samsung phone – macro and ultra wide.

It is also a very thin phone, only 7.99 mm thick and weighs 178 grams. Available in three colors: Sunburst Gold, Stargaze White and Meteor Black.

Realme 9i

The 9i was the entry-level phone in the series and was the first phone to be announced.

Realme 9i

The design of the phone is simple and very simple by Realme’s usual standards – no giant logo or race strip was found. Available in blue or simpler black version above.

The Realme 9i has a Snapdragon 680 chipset combined with 4/6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of memory. The screen is a 6.6-inch FHD + IPS LCD that can control the refresh rate from 30 Hz to 90 Hz.

On the side of the camera you get a 16Mp selfie camera and a triple rear camera: 50Mp with dual 2Mp sensor, f/1.8 main camera – one macro, the other monochrome.

Finally, you get a 5000mAh battery with 33W wired charging support. Unpacks Android 11.

Realme 9 5G

There are two different versions of Realme 9 5G to get started: one for Europe and one for India. Let’s look at the European version first.

Realme 9 5G

This phone is actually very different from the usual Realme 9, which reduces all the features in exchange for placing it in 5G without a price increase (in fact, the 5G model is slightly cheaper in some European markets).

The Europe 9 5G features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 with a larger 6.6-inch screen – up to 120Hz update speed, but just an LCD instead of OLED.

Charging is reduced to 18 W, the camera offers a 50Mp lead sensor supported by two 2Mp monochrome and macro sensors.

Realme 9 5G SE

The 9 5G SE, which means “Fast Edition”, is at the top of the range and is actually more powerful (and more expensive) than the 9 Pro.

So far, this is the only phone not sold in Europe.

Realme 9 5G SE

Equipped with the Snapdragon 778G chipset, the device also has an impressive 144Hz refresh rate, which makes it a popular choice for gaming.

The 48Mp camera is a bit lower than the Pro, so some buyers may choose this phone instead.

Realme 9 Pro

The 9 Pro is more exciting. That starts with the design, which is essentially identical to the 9 Pro+.

Realme 9 Pro

This is a heroic color called “Sunrise Blue”, which combines a technology that Realme calls “Light Shift Design”. This is similar to the color-changing glass we saw in the Vivo V23 series this year, in which the blue phone turns red when exposed to sunlight or ultraviolet light, and turns blue when out of light.

In this short introductory video shared by Realme, you can see the color-changing design in action:

The phone is also available in simpler Midnight Black and Aurora Green colors without light switching technology.

Inside, the 9 Pro is equipped with a Snapdragon 695 chipset with up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory.

The screen has a 6.6-inch LCD with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, which makes it a very large phone – but it leaves enough space for a 5000 mAh battery and 33 W of charging.

Finally, the rear camera device consists of a 64Mp main lens plus an 8Mp ultra-wide and a third 2Mp lens.

As for the software, the Realme 9 Pro series starts with RealmeUI 3.0 based on Android 12.

The full features are:

Realme 9 Pro Plus

9 Pro + looks similar, but underneath are a few extra bells and whistles. We actually reviewed the 9 Pro +, so if you want to know what we think about the phone, read on.

Realme 9 Pro Plus

There are a few key differences from the 9 Pro. The first, strange as it may seem, is a bit small. The screen is only 6.4 inches and at the same time has a refresh rate of 90 Hz – but instead, it’s both an on-screen fingerprint scanner and, oddly enough, an AMOLED panel that offers the ability to use it as a heart rate monitor

Overall, the phone is smaller and lighter as a result of the smaller screen, but this results in a smaller 4500 mAh battery. However, charging is faster at 60 watts.

The 9 Pro + uses a MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset combined with up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory.

The triple rear camera is similar, but with a major improvement: the main lens uses a 50Mp Sony IMX766 sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) – the same setup is used to make a big impact on our current favorite mid-range OnePlus Nord 2. range phone.

Google Pixel 6a

Google Pixel 6a Everything you need to know

When Google launched the Pixel 6 Series at the end of last year, the Pixel 6a had an obvious flaw.

Since its launch in 2019, the A-Series retains most of its key features and offers an excellent and affordable alternative to Google’s flagships.

The long-awaited and much-talked-about Pixel 6a has finally been unveiled at Google’s main I/O launch, but you’ll still have to wait a while for the phone to launch. Here’s everything you need to know.

When will the Google Pixel 6a be released?

As expected, Google announced the Pixel 6a on May 11, 2022 at the I / O developer conference.

However, the phone will not be available for several months. Specifically, pre-orders start on July 21 before the phone goes on sale on July 28.

Release dates for previous models for context are:

  • Google Pixel 5a – August 2021 (only in North America and Japan)
  • Pixel 4a – August 2020
  • Google Pixel 3a – May 2019

The limited release of the Pixel 5a meant that it would never reach the UK or Europe, but this is not the case with the Pixel 6a – it is getting a full global release.

At the end of the year, of course, the 6a should be joined by the flagship Pixel 7 and the long-rumored Pixel foldable phone.

How much will the Google Pixel 6 cost?

Google has officially announced the starting price of the Pixel 6a – £399/$ 449. It looks like you will get 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory and no other configuration will be available.

How to assemble the previous A-series phones:

  • Pixel 5a – $449 (around £339/€399)
  • Google Pixel 4a 5G – £499/€499/$499
  • Pixel 4a – £349/€349/$349
  • Google Pixel 3a – £399/€399/$399

The Pixel 4a 5G was something, raising the price by about £150/€150/$150 compared to its predecessors. It seems that it will not be repeated soon.

What features and specifications does the Google Pixel 6a have?

When Google I/O officially unveiled the Pixel 6a in 2022, it revealed all the key features you’d expect.

A major improvement over the Pixel 5a is Google’s transition to its own Tensor chip, which has the same built-in 5G as last year’s Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. only the memory configuration Google says the Pixel 6a is 5 times faster than last year’s phone, but it’s not clear what tests were used to determine that.

You will also see the new design of the Pixel 6a in the official photos. More compatible with the rest of the Pixel 6 Series and available in three different colors Charcoal chalk and sage The phone uses a recycled aluminum frame and has a 6.1-inch 1080p OLED display, but the update frequency is still only 60Hz.

Google Pixel 6a

The phone also has the same amazing rear camera module with a 12.2Mp main lens and a 12Mp ultra-wide camera with 114 viewing areas. You also get an 8-megapixel selfie lens

The tensor chip in all three cameras helps enable basic software-based camera functions. These include Magic Eraser to erase or change the color of unwanted objects, all of which have a Real Tone for Blurring Facial Blur and Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, as well as Night View.

Google says the typical battery size is 4,410 mAh, but on some models it can be as low as 4,306 mAh, as it claims to provide power for hours and can increase it to 18 watts, but we don’t know if this is an improvement over the 18 W support. Pixel 5a.

Google Pixel 6a

Other features announced include IP67 water and dust resistance and a fingerprint sensor at the bottom of the screen. The sensor chip has built-in 5G, but there is still no expandable memory.

The phone will be equipped with Android 12, but when it arrives, it will be one of the first phones to get Android 13. Google has committed to at least three years of software updates and five years of security updates since its launch.

At I/O, Google also officially announced the Pixel Buds Pro. Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, Android 13, Pixel Watch and new Pixel Tablets are also on sale.

We discussed all this and more in episode 114 of our weekly Fast Charge podcast:

YouTube Adds live calls in TikTok style to show Live Broadcast

YouTube announced on Twitter that it has added a new indicator to show that a channel is live streaming on the platform.

When this feature is available, it will make it easier for users to find live content on the platform. The new feature shows a call with the word “Live” around its profile picture during the live broadcast of the channel, which allows users to go directly to the live broadcast of the channel.

When someone goes live, he is very impressed by Tiktok chain effect on the channel’s profile. The meta owner Instagram also shows a colored hoop around the profile picture of the live streaming account when displayed at the top of the user feed.

This feature has been available for Android users for some time, but support for YouTube TV users on iOS is expected in the coming months. YouTube TV is also working to expand on some other features, including surround sound, which was introduced in a very limited set of devices last year.
