Realme India and Europe CEO Madhav Sheth revealed the connectivity ports on the upcoming Realme Book Slim.On the left are two USB Type-C ports and on the right is a single USB Type-A port with a 3.5mm headphone jack.The left USB Type-C port is Thunderbolt 4 and the right is USB 3.2 Type-C Gen 2.Right next to it is a USB 3.1 Type-A Gen 1 port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The image shared by Sheth is interesting because it states that this port selection is only available on Intel Core i5 powered models.This clarification most likely refers to the Thunderbolt 4 port, but it also implies there is an Intel Core i3-powered Realme Book Slim with no Thunderbolt 4 port.Optionally, this Core i3 model could have either a Thunderbolt 3 or Gen 2 USB Type-C port.
The rumoured Core i3 model will be lower in price than the Intel Core i5 model, which is expected to launch at around Rs. 55,000.Another report claimed the Realme Book Slim would start at Rs. 40,000, with an Intel Core i3 processor.
Realme Book will also launch in China on the same day as Realme Book in India — August 18 — but without the ‘Slim’ moniker.The company has now revealed on Weibo that the Realme Book will be powered by an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, in line with previously leaked specifications.
This is likely the processor in the Realme Book Slim.
