As with any other realme smartphone device, the box comes in yellow color but with black stripes at the bottom. It has the realme 9 Pro+ 5G branding and standard tech specs on the front and rear, as well as branding on both sides of the box.

The contents of the box are practically the same as any realme smartphone in general, it includes the realme 9 Pro+ 5G phone, USB Type-C data and charging Cable, SIM ejector tool, Protective Case, Quick Start Guide, Important Product Information (including the Warranty Card) and the 65W Charge Adapter.

While realme was generous in including the wall charger and protective case, It's unfortunate that realme didn't provide wired earbuds, which would have been useful since the phone has a 3.5mm audio connector.

Although we were given the Aurora Green color option, there are also Midnight Black and Sunrise Blue color variants available, the latter of which changes color when exposed to ultraviolet light (UV) using the all-new Light Shift Design.

The 9 Pro+ is incredibly thin, measuring just 7.99mm and weighing only 182g, and it feels excellent in the hand because of its curved backside, which prevents it from easily slipping on the palm.

The device's main highlight is its triple camera system, which includes a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 primary sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS), an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor, all of which are arranged in a triangular configuration with a square border.

The on/off button is placed on the right side, and the volume control is located on the left side together with the SIM slot.

It was surprising to see a dual nano-SIM slot without a micro SD card, as opposed to the standard triple tray found on realme smartphones. It's a small inconvenience considering it has large internal storage (256GB) capacity.

At the bottom, It has the usual Type-C port, audio jack, microphone, and speaker which are dual speakers that are backed by Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio.

Under the hood, the 9 Pro+ packs a MediaTek 6nm Dimensity 920 5G chipset, clocked up to 2.5GHz paired with Arm Mali-G68 MC4 GPU with 8GB of RAM and 256GB UFS2.2 storage.

For battery, it packs a typical 4500mAh battery that comes with a 60W SuperDart charger that can charge the battery to 50% charge in just about 15mins.

First Impressions
The realme 9 Pro+ is not an increment upgrade from its predecessor realme 8 Pro. Among its many impressive features are the slim and stylish design, the eye-catching color schemes as well as a powerful processor, and a camera system that has been turbocharged using Prolight Imaging technology. Overall we loved what this phone has to offer and we are excited to use this as our daily driver for the next few weeks.
