It’s a big day for Realme as the brand hosts three events across China, India and Europe. Kicking things off is a new product category for the brand with the Realme Book (aka Book Slim) – the first laptop from Realme and in turn the BBK Electronics group. It’s a slim and light 14-inch ultrabook with 11-gen Intel Core processors, Windows 10 and up to 11-hours battery life on a single charge. The laptop features a premium all-metallic build and comes in blue and grey colors.
The display features a 2160×1440-pixel resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio protected by an unspecified version of Corning Gorilla Glass. Peak brightness is rated at 400 nits and thanks to the taller aspect ratio you can fit more vertical content on your screen which means less time spent scrolling.
Intel’s 11-gen Core i3 and Core i5 processors are tasked with keep performance in check and they are paired with Iris XE integrated graphics. Realme also packed a dual-fan cooling solution to keep thermals at bay. There’s up to 16GB LPDDR4x RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD storage.
I/O includes a Type-C USB 3, Type-C USB 4/Thundebold port, a Type-A USB 3 and a headphone jack. The laptop also comes with Wi-Fi 6 and packs stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon.
The software front is covered by Windows 10 with a free upgrade to Windows 11 coming down the line. Realme is also bringing a neat PC Connect feature allowing you to fully control compatible Realme phones via Wi-Fi Direct.
Battery life coming from the 54Wh cell is rated at up to 11-hours. The laptop comes with a 65W charger that connects via USB-C and should do a 0-50% charge in just 30 minutes. It’s also compatible with Realme’s 30W Dart Charge solutions found on its phones so if you happen to have one of those laying around you can travel with just one charge in your bag.
The 8/512GB Realme Book with Core i5 processor will cost CNY 4,299 ($663) while the maxed out 16/512GB trim will go for CNY 4,699 ($725). First sales in China start a week from now on August 25.
