Not many new tech brands manage to stick around, especially in India, but Realme has come a long way in a short time. Its portfolio has expanded from smartphones to audio products, TVs, wearables, accessories, and personal care products. Earlier this year, the company branched out even further, launching a new tablet and a laptop. The target market is the same in nearly all cases – young, tech-savvy Indians who like a bit of style but love a good price even more. It will be interesting to see whether Realme can replicate its success with smartphones in the far more cost-sensitive laptop market in India.
Realme's first laptop in India is a relatively affordable ultraportable with a few unique features, most notably its 3:2 2160x1440 pixel screen. This squarish aspect ratio is great for productivity and reading, but you'll have to deal with black bands while watching widescreen movies. It's glossy but bright and crisp. Realme offers two variants, with Intel's 11th Gen Core i3 and Core i5 CPUs respectively. There are a lot of subtle differences between the two, so do pay close attention to the fine print on the spec sheet. The keyboard layout and is good enough for most people and typing is comfortable. The power button has an integrated fingerprint sensor. The Core i3 version reviewed here was powerful enough for day-to-day tasks and productivity, but you might find it constrained if you want to edit video or create content. At just under 1.4kg, this is an easy laptop to live with and carry around.
