The Realme Book is expected to be the smartphone maker’s foray into laptops, and now appears to have a clamshell design factor.

The Realme Book is pretty much confirmed, after multiple teasers by the company itself. While the upcoming laptop looks devilishly similar to the iconic, older generation Apple MacBook Air, a number of factors about the laptop still remain under wraps. Now, Realme vice-president and China product director, Wang-Wei Derek, has posted a photo of the upcoming Realme Book, and while the image does not entirely reveal how the laptop looks like, it gives a fair clue to how it would look.

In the photos, the Realme Book appears to sport slim, blackened bezels, in a clamshell design. The exterior of the laptop is expected to bear resemblance to the older generation MacBook Air, but it remains to be seen if the laptop manages to be sleek enough to be as lightweight and portable as one of the most iconic laptop designs of all time. While the image shared appears blurry, it also hints at affirming the speculated 3:2 display aspect ratio, which will be similar to what many new generation laptops are offering.

Earlier today, a tweet from one of Realme’s official handles on the platform pretty much confirmed that the Realme Book will support Windows 11. However, this does not confirm if the laptop will feature the new OS from Microsoft out of the box, or whether it will be offered to users as a post purchase update. Microsoft has so far earmarked the launch and rollout of Windows 11 for the holiday season of 2021, and given Realme India CEO, Madhav Sheth’s teaser for the Realme Book to launch by the end of the year, it is possible that the device will come with Windows 11 preinstalled.

The overall specifications of the Realme Book laptop have not been teased yet. However, given that its close rival Xiaomi offers a pretty competitive laptop in the Mi Notebook range, with 10th generation Intel processors onboard, it will be interesting to see if Realme can outdo its rivals to offer newer generation internals. So far, speculations have claimed that the laptop will feature an aluminium body (as against plastic bodies on typical budget laptops), thin bezels, a 3:2 display and down-firing speakers.
