The Realme 9 Pro series is to be unveiled and launched in certain countries on 16 February. Leaks suggested that specs include a 6.6-inch screen, a 64MP camera and a 5,000mAh battery.

But its most exciting feature belongs to the 9 Pro+ Sunrise Blue edition. This edition has the ability to change colour when exposed to sunlight, as shown in the above images shared by a Realme employee on Twitter.

While the Realme 9 Pro will almost certainly find its way to Australia eventually, it's difficult to say right now when exactly you'll be able to get your hands on this exciting new gadget. In the meantime, you can check out deals on other Realme products below.
