Closer look at the realme 9 4G before its official launch on June 14

“Is there a realme 9?”: This is one of the many questions we’ve received when we posted about our realme 9 Pro+ review. Although the realme 9 has already been launched in other countries as early as April, it’s only making a grand entrance in the Philippines this June!

Launching in the Philippines on June 14 at 6:00 PM, the realme 9 4G is an eye-candy with its Ripple Holographic Design in three different colors — Stargaze White, Sunburst Gold, and Meteor Black. It boasts flagship-level photography features with its 108MP ProLight Camera, a 90Hz Super AMOLED Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 Processor, and a 5,000mAh Battery with 33W Dart Charge for longer smartphone use, to name a few.

As always, since Manila Millennial was able to get first dibs on the unit, here’s an early peek the device along with sample photos. Full review will be available on the blog soon.


Like previous realme smartphone releases, the realme 9 4G comes in a yellow box with the following accessories: A jelly case, SIM eject tool, USB Type-C cable, 33W charger, and guides with warranty card. The realme 9 already comes with a screen protector, too!


The realme 9 4G has a similar design with the realme 9 Pro+ (which I’m currently using) but I like the colors of the realme 9 with a ripple-like effect more. It’s easy to get used to the device as the button placements are in its usual places — volume rocker and dual SIM tray on the left side, power button on the right; a secondary microphone on top, and an audio jack, USB-C port, and loudspeaker at the bottom. In front, you’ll find a small punch hole camera on the upper left corner, and a thin earpiece above the slim bezels. As usual, the lower bezel is slightly thicker than the rest.

At the back, you’ll find a protruding triple camera setup which is also similar with the realme 9 Pro+. We got the Stargaze White color, which personally looks like the best out of the three, but that’s just me! The back is an eye-candy but the colors turn to a muted grey-like shade when you put on the free jelly case. The Meteor Black variant has a professional vibe to it, while the Sunburst Gold screams “I’m a realme phone!”.

With a 108MP Pro Light Camera, of course, we immediately tried to take a few snaps using the realme 9 4G. Here’s are some sample shots for better appreciation:
