For those of you who are curious about the realme 9 SE 5G, let’s find out the specifications. However, you should know that the SE attached to the realme 9 SE 5G has the abbreviation “Speed ​​Edition”. It is appropriate to have “SE”, because this handset has a fast chipset and high refresh rate.

Maybe you will be surprised by the chipset embedded in the realme 9 SE. realme is confident to embed the Snapdragon 778G chipset into the realme 9 SE. In fact, as we all know, the realme 9 Pro is only equipped with Snapdragon 695.

The chipset embedded in this smartphone is paired with 6 GB or 8 GB RAM (LPDDR4x dual channel) and 128 GB of internal storage with UFS 2.2 technology. This smartphone has a slot to store two SIM cards and one microSD card.

Unlike the realme 9 Pro Series, realme provides the realme 9 SE with the Android 11 operating system wrapped in the realme UI 2.0 interface. reame itself does not give a reason why you have to load an “old” operating system and interface into this smartphone.

Meanwhile, the second “speedy component” is in the screen sector. realme 9 SE comes with a 6.6-inch screen and has a refresh rate of 144Hz. realme boasts that Snapdragon 778G and 144Hz display are the first in the competitive price segment.

The screen can switch between six refresh rates, 30Hz on the low-end and 144Hz on the high-end. realme also offers a touch sampling rate of 240 Hz, making it perfect for fast-paced gaming. The resolution itself is FHD+ and promises a peak brightness of 600 nits.

realme 9 5G

realme 9 5G isn’t too obsessed with speed and its 6.5-inch display runs at 90Hz – enough to make the user interface smooth, but nothing impressive. The handset has a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels (20:9) and promises a peak brightness of 600 nits. The touch sampling rate is 180 Hz.

For the kitchen, realme has the Dimensity 810. This is another 6nm chipset with a 5G modem. The basic memory configuration is 4 GB/64 GB (dual-channel LPDDR4X RAM, but internal storage uses UFS 2.1). Another option offered is 6GB/128GB.

The camera setup is pretty much the same as the 48 MP main camera on the back, plus a macro and depth module. However, there is no 4K video option. If used to record video, the results can only reach 1080p @ 30 fps. The front camera is the same as that of the realme 9 SE 5G.

For the battery, the realme 9 5G is also equipped with a capacity of 5,000 mAh. It’s just that the charging pinned by realme is lower, which is 18W. The fingerprint reader is still built in, but the included wireless connectivity is WiFi 5 (ac) and Bluetooth 5.1.
