Realme, earlier this week, launched the Realme 9 Pro, and the Realme 9 Pro+ handsets in India. Alongside, the brand also announced a limited edition of the Realme 9 Pro+ in collaboration with Free Fire – a popular battle royale game. But this launch comes at a time when Free Fire was just banned in India as part of a list of 54 apps and games that were removed by the Indian Government.
Realme has not announced the availability and the pricing of the Realme 9 Pro+ Free Fire limited edition. Though, we can expect the company to offer the Realme 9 Pro+ Free Fire Edition only in the select configurations.
Realme has not showcased the design of the Realme 9 Pro+ Free Fire Edition, but we can expect it to come with a different back panel. The company might also preload some game-inspired themes and other UI elements. Apart from Realme 9 Pro+ Free Fire Edition, the company will also launch the Realme GT Neo 2 Dragon Ball Edition in the coming weeks in the country.
