The Realme 9 5G that will be released in Europe is not the same as the Realme 9 5G that was released in Asia.
Realme has already announced that it would have a Europe-specific launch event on May 12, with the Realme 9 series and the Realme Pad Mini expected to make their debut on the continent.
According to a recent report, while the Realme 9 and Realme Pad Mini specs will remain unchanged as they go from Asia to Europe, the Realme 9 5G will not. The Snapdragon 695 SoC, not the Dimensity 810, powers the European Realme 9 5G.
On the plus side, the LCD screen has enlarged somewhat to a 6.6" panel with a resolution of 1080x2412 and a refresh rate of 120 Hz (up from 90 Hz on the other Realme 9 5G).
According to the leaked spec sheet, the European version will have a triple back camera system with a 50 MP primary camera, a 2 MP macro camera, and a 2 MP black and white unit, as well as a 16 MP selfie camera in the punch-hole on the front.
The main camera differs from its Asian equivalent, which has a 48 MP sensor, but the battery specifications remain the same: 5,000 mAh capacity with 18W charging.
The Realme 9 5G has a 3.5 mm headphone port and a fingerprint sensor incorporated in the power button, and it runs Android 12 with Realme UI 3 on top. The European model weighs 191g and dimensions 164.3 x 75.6 x 8.5mm.
It will cost between €200 and €300 and come in white or black, with 4GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of storage.
