Few days back realme vice president Madhav Sheth said that “We are planning to launch 5G smartphones under 15k budget”. Mentioning that, today realme launched new smartphone in realme 9 series named realme 9i 5G in India.
It is good to see smartphones with 5G connectivity in affordable price range. Online consumers might look at this smartphone and will have good sales also. If this smartphone available more cheaper in the upcoming sales.

Is it worth to buy?
Overally a good device at that price segment and the competitor to realme Narzo 50 5G and POCO M4 Pro 5G have same processor (MedaiTek Dimensity 810), dual cameras, 90Hz refresh rate, 5000mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.
But realme 9i 5G have triple cameras. POCO M3 Pro 5G have better 16 megapixel front facing camera. I’ll personally choose POCO M4 Pro 5G than both realme smartphones.
