Realme 9 Pro series comprising the vanilla Realme 9 Pro and Realme 9 Pro+ are expected to launch in India sometime later this month. Now, a company executive has shared some details about the upcoming Realme 9 Pro+ — expected to be the flagship model in the series. Some key specifications of Realme 9 Pro+ also surfaced online last month, hinting that the smartphone will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC. The upcoming smartphone is also said to have 5G connectivity.
As per a tweet by Realme VP Madhav Sheth, the upcoming Realme 9 Pro+ will get an in-built heart rate sensor. In a video embedded with his tweet, it can be seen that the smartphone will feature an under-display fingerprint scanner that doubles up as a heart rate sensor. To measure, users will have to open the heart rate measurement tool and keep their finger pressed on the fingerprint sensor till the screen shows a reading.
Once the tool measures the heart rate of a user, it asks whether the user was resting, walking, exercising, or if it was a general measurement. The History tab in the heart rate measurement tool on Realme 9 Pro+ will keep a log of all the heart rate measurements done by the user. At this point, it remains unclear whether this feature will be available only on Realme 9 Pro+ or also on the vanilla Realme 9 Pro.

The smartphone will reportedly get a triple rear camera setup that will get a 50-megapixel primary sensor from Sony, an 8-megapixel secondary sensor, and a 2-megapixel tertiary sensor. In the front, it is said to feature a 16-megapixel selfie sensor. Realme 9 Pro+ is also said to get up to 256GB of onboard storage. It will reportedly pack a 4,500mAh battery.
