realme to Refresh Kenya Phone Lineup with the 9 4G and C35


realme has been in the Kenyan market for a while now. The company, whose sister brands include OPPO and vivo, has been selling low-cost devices locally, and it has never really brought its high-end smartphones here.

Nonetheless, and in the spirit of remaining relevant locally and appealing to customers who do not want to spend an arm and a leg on a phone, realme has revealed that it will be bringing budget-conscious the realme 9 4G and realme C35 here. The devices, according to realme, are targeting young people.

realme 9 4G

Realme 9 Price In Kenya & Mobile Specs KE | MobGsm

Screen: 6.4”, Super AMOLED, 90 Hz, FHD+

OS: Android 12, realme UI 3.0

Chip: Snapdragon 680 4G

Memory: 6/128 GB, 8/128 GB

Camera: Triple setup with 108 MP main sensor

Selfie: 16 MP

Battery: 5000 mAh, 33W fast charging

realme C35

Realme C35 Price In Kenya & Mobile Specs KE | MobGsm

Screen: 6.6” FH+, ISP

OS: Android 11, realme UI 2.0

Chip: Unisoc Tiger T616

Memory: 4/64 GB, 6/64 GB, 4/128 GB

Camera: Triple with 50 MP main sensor

Selfie: 8 MP

Battery: 5000 mAh, 18W fast charging

The realme 9 4G is obviously a superior device with that 108 MP main sensor. It also ships with Android 12, unlike the C35 that has Android 11 that is a little aged now.

The C35 also appears to have kept modest looks, which include the now dated teardrop notch that houses the selfie camera. A cleaner design would have been welcome, but it is not a deal breaker.

The devices will arrive locally sometime in July. Pricing details have not been revealed, but that should be done at the time the smartphones get here.

realme’s sister brand OPPO brought its high-end Find X5 to Kenya for KES 100K. realme’s high ends, such as the GT Neo 3 hardly make their way here, but we hope that will change in the coming days.
