Following the launch of the realme 9 Pro Series in March, realme releases the Free Fire edition of the smartphone. It comes with the flagship-level features of the 9 Pro+ with a fresh coat of paint inspired by the popular battle royale mobile game Free Fire.
The unboxing experience of the limited-edition Free Fire variant is something special. The smartphone comes in a customized box packaging that unfolds into a Free Fire universe map. The box itself comes in the familiar yellow, but it has the Free Fire logo and a silhouette of Free Fire character Kelly “The Swift” on the front.
Inside is an assortment of realme x Free Fire merchandise, including an FF Knife SIM pin, Free Fire stickers, and a Free Fire Magic Cube Reward Card which lets you claim a special in-game collectible.
In the box

- Pre-installed screen protector
- FF Knife SIM Pin
- Free Fire Stickers
- Free Fire Magic Cube Reward Card
- Silicone case
- 65W Fast Charger

The realme 9 Pro+ 5G Free Fire Limited Edition variant’s design is heavily inspired by different elements from the game. The handset has a glossy finish in dark blue with the FF Knife blade patterns that reflects rainbow colors when hit with a light source.
In the upper right corner, the word “Booyah!” is emblazoned with the same gradient. You also have the realme logo in silver at the back.
Continuing with the Free Fire elements, the phone comes with a special theme with a Kelly “The Swift” lock screen and wallpaper, along with special icons for default apps and an octagon icon shape for the other apps.
Apart from the fresh coat of paint, it’s the same realme 9 Pro+. It has a 90Hz 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a 2400 x 1080 resolution, a 360Hz touch sampling rate, up to 1000 nits of brightness, and Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
