what you need to know
- Realme has “revealed” the design of its upcoming 9 Pro series of phones.
- Both Realme 9 Pro series phones will feature color-changing backs.
- The phone’s “Light Shift Design” is inspired by photochromic and organic photochromic materials.
Realme is expected to unveil two new additions to its “digital series” of budget phones soon. Ahead of its official launch later this month, Realme has detailed a new “Light Shift Design” for the upcoming Realme 9 Pro series.
The Sunrise Blue versions of both phones will have a color-changing back that apparently “changes from blue to red in five seconds under sunlight or UV light.” When the phone has no direct light, it turns back to blue.
Realme says the new “light-shifting design” is inspired by photochromic and organic photochromic materials. In order to achieve the “chameleon” effect on the 9 Pro series phones, realme had to use new technologies such as changing the molecular structure, so that the material can quickly change color and fade again.
realme pioneered the pioneering double-layer photochromic process and added an organic composite layer, which not only ensures the expected effect, but also improves the color rendering rate
The Realme 9 Pro series phones won’t be the first to feature color-changing backs. The vivo V23 series phones released last month have a similar design.
While Realme has yet to confirm a release date for the 9 Pro series, it did reveal last month that the Realme 9 Pro+ will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G chipset. On the other hand, the Realme 9 Pro is rumored to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 695. The same chipset also powers the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G – one of Xiaomi’s best budget Android phones.
Update (February 3, 12:20AM ET) ― Realme 9 Pro series will be launched on February 16
Realme has announced that its color-changing 9 Pro series of phones will be launched at an online event in India on February 16. The conference will begin at 1:30 PM IST.
