Coming to the hardware department, Realme 9i is powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor and comes with RAM of 6GB which no doubt gives it better efficiency but isn’t as powerful as the chipset present in Realme 8i which is equipped with an octa-core Media Tek Helio G96 processor. Realme 8i processor provides much better gaming performance.

Now, moving to Display qualities, the new Realme 9i comes with a 6.6-inch touchscreen display that offers resolution of 1080×2400 pixels whereas Realme 8i comes with a similar 6.6-inch display with the resolution of 1080×2412 pixels. Realme 9i is lighter as it only weighs 190g whereas Realme 8i weighs 194g which is not a great difference but Realme 8i gives a refresh rate of 120 Hz which is higher than Realme 9i’s as it only offers 90Hz. Lower refresh rate is not a good impression for a new launch. Both phones run on Android 11 and provide 64GB of inbuilt storage with the expandable storage via microSD card.

Heading to the camera, Realme 8i and Realme 9i both come with 50 MP Rear cameras accompanied by Dual 2 megapixel sensors for macro and depth but features offered by both have some differences. Realme 8i offers Ultra steady video, Night Mode, Panoramic Mode View, expert, Timelapse, Portrait Mode, HDR, Ultra Macro, Al scene Recognition, Al beauty, Filter, Chroma Boost and Slow Motion. Where on the other hand Realme 9i only provides Night Mode, Panoramic View, Expert, Timelapse, Portrait Mode, Slow Motion, Super Text, Ultra Macro and HDR. And for selfies 16megapixel sensor is present on both the handsets.

Connectivity provided by both the smartphones are identical.

The Realme 9i will be available in India on January 25. So if you are planning to buy one do consider the above comparison so you get the phone with maximum benefit and that satisfies your needs.
