There’s been a lot of speculation about Realme’s new laptop, and it looks like it’s finally happening. The company’s CEO, Madhav Sheth, took to Twitter to tease a new laptop. “#realme new product category has a message for you!
Can you decode it & guess the product name that will add up to your #TechLife?”, he tweeted. The tweet, as you can see below, also includes a binary code that translates to “Hello World!”.

The tweet also has an image that reveals the metallic build of the laptop. They have also placed the laptop inside a paper office envelope, similar to how Apple’s Steve Jobs unveiled the MacBook Air (Review) back in 2008 by removing it from a tiny paper office envelope, and the crowd was shocked at just how thin it was.
Realme is clearly hinting at a thin and light laptop, similar to the MacBook Air. Besides that, there’s not a lot to decode from the teaser. We don’t know what the laptop will be called or what kind of hardware it will be packed with. If we were to guess, it will be a thin and light laptop with one of the newer 11th Gen Intel Core processors.
You can also expect the laptop to lock horns with Xiaomi’s Mi NoteBook laptops in India. Realme will most likely go for aggressive pricing, so we are expecting the laptop, and its variants, to cost anywhere between Rs 40,000 to Rs 60,000 at max. It could also be more powerful than the Mi NoteBook 14 Horizon Edition (Review), so it’s hard to guess what to expect here, really.
In a separate tweet, the CMO of realme India Francis also took it to Twitter to talk about “realme pad”. He even ran a poll with “realme Pad” and “realme Tab”, and asked which one would the consumers pick. It highly possible that Realme is planning to launch a tablet as well.
Which one is your pick?

Realme appears to be cooking a lot of products behind the scenes in addition to the smartphones, and it will be interesting to see what we’ll get once they take off the curtains.
