The Realme 9 Pro+ is coming with a color change that changes hue from blue to red, Realme India boss Madhav Sheth said on social media on Wednesday. The new Realme phone is rumored to launch in the country alongside the Realme 9 Pro later this month. Called the ‘Light Shift Design’, the new back panel will change color when exposed to sunlight, the company said in a separate teaser. Realme brothers Oppo and Vivo have previously introduced phones with color-changing back panels.

Madhav Sheth tweeted to tease the Realme 9 Pro+ with the color change back. The executive confirmed that the two colors will be called Sunrise Blue and Glitter Red.

Although Sheth did not provide further details on the new design, Realme, via its official global Twitter account, posted a teaser video that shows how Light Shift Design works.

The 15 second video shows the back changing color from Sunrise Blue to Glittery Red. Another tweet published from Realme details that the new design will change color when exposed to sunlight at certain temperatures.

Sheth specified in his tweet that the new design will be part of the Realme 9 Pro+. However, the company’s tweets show that the offer will be part of the Realme 9 Pro series. However, it’s unclear if it will also be available on the regular Realme 9 Pro.

Last year, Oppo presented the Reno 5 Pro in Astral Blue that change the tone of your back panel. Vivo also recently brought the Vivo V23 Pro back with Sunshine Gold that changes color when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light.

Earlier this week, the Realme 9 Pro with a blue color tone was seen being worn by Indian cricketer KL Rahul. The Realme 9 Pro+ was also recently announced to come with a built-in heart rate sensor.

Realme has yet to confirm the release date of the Realme 9 Pro series in India. However, it is slated to premiere as early as February 16.
