Realme 9 Pro Malaysia Specs
The Realme 9 Pro may be the cheaper device in the series but it is actually a larger phone as it gets a larger screen and battery. The device gets a 6.6″ Full HD+ LCD display which pushes a higher 120Hz refresh rate. Instead of a MediaTek processor, the device runs on a Snapdragon 695 5G, which is similar to the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G.
Although it shares a similar body colour and camera bump, the triple-camera setup on the Realme 9 Pro is slightly different. Instead of a 50MP main camera, it gets a 64MP main shooter. It still retains a 8MP ultra-wide-angle shooter and a 2MP macro lens. The 16MP selfie camera on the punch-hole in the display is also the same as the Pro+ model.
Powering the Realme 9 Pro is a large 5,000mAh that supports 33W fast charging via USB-C. It only gets a single speaker but it still gets a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device also runs on Android 12 with Realme UI 3.0 skin on top.
