With the hybrid workspace still being implemented in the country, the need for affordable and reliable digital devices has increased. Many multi-faceted millennials and young professionals are still working from home and those who use demanding programs and apps daily need a device that is equipped with high specs, which are often quite expensive. Oftentimes, these devices also serve multiple purposes, being used not only for work but also for entertainment and play. 

The same is true for millions of Filipino students still studying at home in a distance learning setup. As in-person classes remained banned in the meantime, students must be provided with the tools they will need to be able to study effectively in this challenging situation. 

That is why for smartphone brand realme, the introduction of its first-ever laptop comes at the right time. For a three-year-old brand in a highly competitive landscape, realme has proven its mettle time and time again, with its latest distinction being the No. 1 Brand in the Philippines Smartphone Market for Q2 2021 according to global research firm Counterpoint Technology Market Research, International Data Corporation, and Canalys.

Popular among the young crowd, realme's smartphones offer notable specs, storage, and battery without breaking the bank. It is now expanding its portfolio by offering a quality and attainable laptop that caters to this market.

realme provides users a full-circle digital experience with the launch of the realme Book. It aims to empower today's generation with a smart device that can help suit every need. 

Design

The realme Book boasts of a light and slim design, ideal for users who move around a lot as it is comfortable to carry. It is 14.9 millimeters thick and weighs barely 1.38 kilograms, uncommon lightness for a 14-inch laptop. 

For a premium look, it adopts an aluminum alloy body design that has been built through more than 30 processes. It also comes in two colorways, Real Silver and Real Blue.

Display

The 14" screen offers a good balance of portability and visibility while allowing users to experience immersive visuals. It has a resolution of 2160 x 1440 and 100% sRGB color gamut screens, displaying more colors for individuals in the design industry or for those who simply enjoy watching movies. It also features a nano-edge design with a 5.3mm narrow bezel, giving users the full advantage of the 2K Full-Vision Display.

For those who love working outdoors, the realme Book's brightness is 30% brighter than typical laptops. 

The IPS technology gives this laptop a wide viewing angle while its 3:2 screen ratio can show more content when
compared to the traditional 16:10 or 16:9 screens. This can be helpful to photographers as it matches the usual 3:2 outputs of modern cameras.

Audio 

Accompanying its immersive visuals are clear sounds. The laptop is equipped with Stereo Sound by DTS (Powerful Bass Sound by HARMAN) for a complete audio-visual experience.

Those who need clear audio for teleconferences and online classes will like its dual-mic that supports Elevoc Vocplus AI Noise Cancellation Algorithms, Vocplus Pre-processing Technology, and Vocplus Scream Suppression Technology.

Performance 

Powering the realme Book is the 11th Gen Intel Core Processor. It adopts the 10nm SuperFin manufacturing process with energy efficiency performance and the newly upgraded CPU + GPU structure, allowing heavy creative tasks to be handled with ease. To help users focus on their work without distractions, realme equipped the laptop with a dual-fan Storm Cooling System, ultra-thin high speed and high airflow dual fans that allow the device to run quietly even when doing high-performance tasks.

Supporting its powerful engine is an 8GB RAM for speedy multi-tasking operations, and 512GB SSD storage to safely hold all your important files. 

Battery

As realme smartphones are known for their fast-charging functions, the brand made sure to adopt the same technology for its laptop. It supports 65W Super-Fast Charge technology that allows the laptop to charge to 50% in just 30 minutes. Plus, at full charge, its 54Wh battery has up to 11 hours of battery life, helping users reach maximum productivity.

It is worth a mention that the 65W charger that comes with it is also compatible with the brand's 30W Dart
Charge technology, so users can fast-charge their realme smartphone and other USB-C port devices like tablets and power banks.
