Renders of the Realme 9i shared by ThePixel.vn (in Vietnamese) reveal that the upcoming smartphone could feature a triple rear camera setup with an LED flash, which is fitted in a single camera module. It looks similar to the Realme GT Neo 2 smartphone. The back of the handset also shows a small branding in the form of the Realme logo on the bottom left corner of the screen. The render shows a single speaker located to the right of the USB Type-C port at the bottom.
It looks like the back of the phone has curved edges that merge into the left and right spines of the phone. According to the renders, there is no fingerprint scanner on the back of the smartphone. This suggests that it may be found on the power button, or the company may include an in-display scanner. There is a punch-hole camera on the front of the handset which is given in the top right corner of the screen.
