For the device, the designer has been inspired by suitcases, hence its horizontal grilles, and has opted for vegan leather as a material. However, it is also available in black and white with more conventional finishes. Depending on the model we will have a greater or lesser weight and thickness.

In terms of autonomy and operating system, there is a 4,300 mAh battery with 65W fast charging (10V/6.5A charger included). The operating system, on the other hand, is Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0, so it is up to date until Android 12 begins to be rolled out.
