Last year, Realme launched the X7 series in China. The lineup consisted of the vanilla X7 and X7 Pro—both with MediaTek Dimensity chipsets. Realme re-branded V15 as X7 for the Indian market while the Pro model launched as is. Now, fresh leaks have revealed that the company is prepping for the launch of its successor. The upcoming Realme X9 series (X9, X9 Pro) will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors.
Realme X9, X9 Pro Rumors Roundup:
Like the existing X7 series, the Realme X9 lineup will have three devices. The company is adding a “Master Edition” to go with the Realme X9 and X9 Pro. For now, the information about the three phones is scarce.
Still, we know that the X9 will feature Snapdragon 778G processor. It is the successor to last year’s Snapdragon 768G. The new chipset is built on TSMC’s 6nm process and comes with a tri-cluster CPU architecture with 1x Cortex-A78 (@ 2.4GHz), 3x Cortex-A78 (@ 2.2GHz), and 4x Cortex-A55 (@ 1.9GHz). Unfortunately, this is all we know about the X9 so far.
Moving on to the X9 Pro, it will pack a more powerful Snapdragon 870 under the hood. It is the overclocked version of last year’s Snapdragon 865+. The phone will have a 120Hz display as its predecessor. But this time around, Realme will use a curved panel.
While people are speculating the specs of the Realme X9 series, a device with RMX3366 model number has appeared on TENAA. The phone features a 6.55-inch FHD AMOLED panel. It will have a slim profile with a thickness of just 8mm.
It will get its juice from a 4400mAh battery, which has two cells of 2200mAh each. The dual-cell configuration means that it will support 65W Dart Charging. The device will boot on Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top.
According to Digital Chat Station, the phone will have Snapdragon 778G chipset. Thus, many are claiming it to be the Realme X9. However, we will have to wait to see if that is the case.

Realme X9 series could soon launch in China. According to leaks, the standard X9 will have a price between 2,000 and 2,500 Yuan. On the other hand, the cost of the X9 Pro is expected to range between 2,500 and 3,000 Yuan.
