Realme Book, the company’s first laptop now has a launch date. Realme has confirmed that it is launching the Realme Book on August 18 in China. Realme has also teased the design of the Realme Book on Weibo where it posted a picture of the upcoming laptop. The Realme laptop will launch during the 828 fan festival in China on August 18 at 3:00 PM local time.
Realme took to Weibo to announce the release date of the Realme Book after multiple leaks and rumours these past months. It also showed off the laptop ahead of the launch and it looks in line with the earlier leaked renders. The Realme Book laptop has clearly taken some inspiration from the Apple MacBook Air when it comes to design.
Earlier this week, the Realme TechLife Twitter handle posted a video confirming Type C charging on the Realme Book Slim which could be another model in the Realme Book series. Having said that, there is no word on the exact launch date of either the Realme Book or Realme Book Slim in India yet. We expect it to arrive in India after its global unveil.
