After months of leaks and rumors, Realme officially enters the laptop market with the announcement of the new Realme Book.
The Realme Book features a 14-inch IPS screen with the standard 3:2 aspect ratio. It boasts ultra-thin bezels, achieving a 90% screen-to-body ratio. It is also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass, but the exact model used was not mentioned.
Under the hood, it’s powered by an 11th-Gen Intel processor with an option between Core i3 and Core i5 models. It has dual fans to keep the temps down. Plus, you can get it with up to 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD storage.
The device ships with Windows 10 operating system with a free upgrade to Windows 11 once it’s available. Like Huawei’s, you can control and screen mirror compatible Realme smartphones with its PC Connect feature.
It then comes with a 54Wh battery that is said to last for 11 hours. Like a lot of modern laptops, it charges via USB Type-C with a 65W adapter. A 0-50% charge will only take half an hour. If you forget your laptop charger at home, you can use the Realme 30W Dart charger of your smartphone if you want to.
All of these power are packed inside a premium, all-metal body.
