Regrettably, the company has remained mum on the Realme Book’s launch date in India. However, multiple reports suggest that the device will arrive in the Indian market this month. In an interview with MoneyControl earlier this month, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth confirmed that the company will launch the Realme Book laptop. Furthermore, Sheth revealed that the laptop will be available in two variants. One of the aforesaid variants will ship with an i5 11th-generation Intel chip.
He went on to confirm that the laptop will be available in three eye-catching color options. The company has already given us a glimpse of the Silver and Blue color options of the Realme Book. Some reports claim that the laptop will be made available in a red color option as well. Aside from that, Sheth said that the company is on the verge of launching its robot vacuum cleaner in India. There are more lifestyle tech products from the brand coming to India later this year.
