While the newly launched Realme 9 5G smartphone would fit the bill for most users, the Realme 9 5G SE (aka Speed Edition) is bound to excite mobile gamers on a budget. This variant of the phone is powered by the very potent Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor, which is also found on the Realme GT Master Edition, Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G, Samsung Galaxy M52 5G, and the iQOO Z5.
The handset packs in a large, high-refresh-rate display and Virtual RAM expansion, promising a smooth and lag-free gaming experience. Let’s have look at Realme 9 5G SE specifications below.
Realme 9 5G SE: Features, Specifications
The Realme 9 5G SE is built using a polycarbonate body but gets a “Starlight” design for the back panel for a premium look. Despite the large battery, it has a thickness of 8.5mm and weighs 199g. It flaunts a 6.6-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ resolution, a 144Hz screen refresh rate, and a 180Hz touch sampling rate. The display comes with six levels of refresh rates steps, and the phone switches between them automatically, depending on the content to save battery.

The Realme 9 5G SE is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset, which is built on TSMC’s 6nm fabrication process.
