Realme’s upcoming laptop will come with a smartphone connect feature. This is similar to Huawei’s Share and Microsoft’s Your Phone. It will allow users to control their smartphones from the PC and share files. The new feature is dubbed PC connect and will likely work between the new Realme Book and a list of supported Realme smartphones. Much like Huawei’s software solution, we don’t expect Realme to expand this to other Android smartphones.
The Realme Book integration with smartphones will work in a different way than Huawei’s solution. Instead of using NFC like Huawei which requires you to tap the phone on the laptop’s touchpad, Realme is expected to use Wi-Fi Direct. Of course, this is mere speculation at this moment. After all, Realme is yet to disclose the full functionality of such a feature. Thankfully, we’ll know everything about the Realme Book soon enough.
