realme 9i starts selling in Kenya

The realme 9i, went official in Kenya yesterday, as expected.

The realme 9i, announced globally last month, packs a 6.6-inch Full HD+ with a 90Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 680 chipset, a triple camera setup at the back that is headlined by a 50-megapixel primary sensor, a 16-megapixel in-display selfie camera and a 5,000mAh battery unit that supports 33W fast-charging (Dart charge).

The device is powered by Android 11 running underneath the realme 2.0 user interface.

While storage options for the device are at 64 and 128GB globally, it’s the latter that’s available in Kenya. This can be expanded to a terabyte via the microSD card slot.

The device’s memory, too can be expanded all the way from 4 or 6 GB to 11GB via the Dynamic RAM expansion feature, something that we have seen in a number of mid-range devices available in the local market.

“The realme 9i brings the first Stereo Prism Design to the realme family of devices, presenting a dynamic effect of three-dimensional light and shadow transformation and comes in two colors, Prism Blue and Prism Black,” a statement from realme reads.

The device is priced at Kshs 23,000 for the 6GB RAM variant and Kshs 22,000 for the 4GB RAM version.

The device is available at both online (like Jumia Kenya) and offline retailers.

According to realme Kenya PR and marketing manager Mildred Agoya, other devices in the realme 9 series are earmarked for release in the country in coming days.

“This is in line with the brand’s goal of bringing young consumers with a leap-forward performance experience.”
