And soon, Realme laptop and tablet

At the same launch, Realme has confirmed what’s been talked about in the rumor mill for some time now: that it will release its own laptop and tablet soon.

The Realme Book, the brand’s first notebook, will come sooner than the Realme Pad, though, with a prototype already shown on stage. You can find the sneak preview of the product at the 1:00:48 mark of the video we embedded above. If you have any ideas on how to make the Realme Book worth buying, you can submit your suggestions to the company through its official website. With the brand wanting to make it a Realme fans-first device, it has launched the Realme Laptop Co-creation Program. Excited? We are.
