As expected, the packaging comes in realme's signature yellow-colored box. The front portion indicates the realme 9 4G branding; while the brand details—model number, IMEI number, serial number, color, and the four important features of the realme 9 4G, are imprinted on the back portion of the box.

The pack contained a SIM card ejector tool, protective silicone case, quick start guide, and important product information (including the Warranty Card).

Underneath the pack is the realme 9 4G smartphone wrapped in white matte plastic. Beneath is the 33W Dart Charge and USB type-C to USB-A charging cable. realme 9 4G doesn’t come with headphones – you still have to provide your own.

After unboxing, let us now take a look at the physical overview and my first impression of the device.

Design and Walk Around

For the design, the realme 9 4G comes in a polycarbonate body and frame with a Ripple Holographic Design for the White and Gold color variants. The design was inspired by the image of dunes in the desert that look like waves of gold when hit by the sun’s rays.

I like this kind of finish because it is less susceptible to fingerprint smudges. In addition to its design, the realme 9 weighs 178g and has a thickness of 7.99mm.

The realme 9 4G comes in three color options: Meteor Black, Stargaze White, and Sunburst Gold. My unit comes in Stargaze White color.

On the front, the realme 9 4G is equipped with a 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080x2400) Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and comes with a pre-installed screen protector.

There’s also a punch-hole 16MP camera located at the upper left and the earpiece is quite thin and discretely etched within the screen enclosure. Like most smartphones in this segment, the side bezels are relatively slim but with a pretty thick chin.

At the back is a rectangular-shaped camera module with a frosted-glass-like surface that houses a triple-camera set-up along with a single LED flash. Three cameras are the 108MP main, the 8MP ultrawide, and the 2MP macro.
