It wasn’t that long ago that we were wondering when the Oppo subsidiary would introduce us to the Realme 9 in the 4G and 5G versions, as well as the Realme Pad mini in Germany. And lo and behold, when asked kindly and which, according to its own statements, delivers the “fastest growing smartphone brand in the world”. Before we go into more detail about the devices, let’s quickly add the Realme GT Neo 3 to the wish list at the end.
Realme delivered as requested last week. Realme 9 in the 4G and 5G variants are now also adorning German retail shelves. Even if it doesn’t necessarily make sense to you, it ultimately lies in the price. With LTE-4G, the potential customer will be the in Sunburst Gold, Meteor Black and Stargaze White available phones for 280 euros (6 GB/128 GB) or 300 euros (8 GB/128 GB) now. If you weigh an LTE 5G transmission mast in your area and want to use it accordingly, you pay €260 (4 GB/64 GB) or €280 (4 GB/128 GB) in the colors Stargaze White and Meteor Black. Um wait a minute! The 4G model is more expensive?
Realme Pad mini
But there was also a Realme Pad mini, which had previously been presented in the home country as well as in India. Now you can also buy it in Germany in the colors gray or blue for 180 euros (WIFI, 3 GB/32 GB) or 200 euros (WIFI, 4 GB/64 GB). The Pad mini has a small 8.7-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1340×800 pixels.
The battery offers 6,400 mAh and can be pumped up to a maximum of 18 watts. Camera technology is built on 5 megapixels at the front and 8 megapixels at the back. The built-in stereo speakers in the aluminum case were almost a little unexpected. The Realme Pad mini, which measures 211.8 x 124.5 x 7.6 millimeters, has an audio jack, a USB Type-C port, GPS and a hybrid slot for a microSD card. The processor is a Unisoc Tiger 616 octa-core processor, unknown in this country, which can confidently be located in the entry-level class.
Realme 9 4G seems to be the better choice
At this point we would have liked to have made it easy for ourselves. But even if the Realme 9 looks very similar in the two LTE variants, they are still completely different from each other. The Realme 9 4G, which measures 160.2 x 73.3 x 7.99 millimeters, has a 6.4-inch AMOLED display (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) and a refresh rate of 90 Hertz. It is powered by a Snapdragon 680 octa-core processor with the aforementioned 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable internal program memory.
The battery capacity is 5,000 mAh and can already be charged with 33 watts. The camera setup is also convincing, at least on the data sheet. On the front 16 megapixels in the top left of the display (punch hole). On the back, the main camera offers 108 megapixels, which are supplemented by an 8-megapixel wide-angle and a 2-megapixel macro camera. Btw – there is also an audio jack to the USB Type-C port.
The 5G model disappoints on the data sheet
The Realme 9 5G, on the other hand, “only” has a 50-megapixel main camera and two 2-megapixel sensors. One for black and white, the other for macro shots. Almost a little sad. And it doesn’t get any better with the display either. There is a 6.6-inch IPS panel here. At least also with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and more frames per second (120 Hz). The front camera also offers 16 megapixels.
The built-in battery can also score with a capacity of 5,000 mAh. However, it is charged with a maximum of 18 watts. It is powered by a Snapdragon 695 octa-core SoC (system on a chip) with an Adreno 619 GPU (graphics processing unit). And yes, here too, optional memory expansion through the microSD card, an audio jack and a USB port Type-C. So – and now please finally the Realme GT Neo 3 with 150 watt UltraDart Charge. The smartphone, which is now also available as OnePlus Ace and OnePlus 10R. Just not with us.
