Realme 9i: How Is It Different From Realme 8i?

The successor Realme 9i comes with similar 50MP triple cameras; however, the design of the camera module gives the Realme 9i a premium look. Besides, you'll get the latest Snapdragon 680 chip, while the Realme 8i runs the MediaTek G96. Further, the Realme 9i also supports extended RAM technology.

However, if you are already using the Realme 8i, then considering the Realme 9i won't be worth it. As it also skips 5G connectivity, you can easily get a 5G-enabled device along with a better display in this range.


Also, the recently launched Vivo V21e with the same Snapdragon 680 can be purchased at Rs. 12,990. It also comes with Eye Protection Mode to filter out the blue light and give a comfortable viewing experience. However, the Vivo smartphone does not support a higher refresh rate.
