Realme has recently launched the 5G version of the Realme 9i. The 4G variant of the smartphone was launched at the beginning of the year. In terms of design, Realme has completely refreshed the device. On the back, it has a metallic finish with three protruding sensors at the top left corner out of which two are larger in size. The power button of the device doubles up as the side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The smartphone seems quite handy as it has a weight of 187 grams which is not high. In addition, it also has a flat edge design which has been seen in multiple smartphones these days. We can say that by the looks, the Realme 9i looks nothing like a budget device. The USB type-C port and the 3.5mm audio jack can be spotted at the bottom of the smartphone. The volume rockers of the device are placed at the left spine.
