HP is again using OLED screens for its latest Specter x360 2-in-1 laptops, but this time you get a little more screen for your money. The new HP Specter x360 has an optional 16-inch, 16:10 4K OLED screen compared to the 15.6-inch screens last year – and delivers true VESA blacks with ‘100% color calibration’, the company said announced.
The new model has an extra 22 mm of viewing space compared to the previous models, while still offering fairly slim edges with a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. It is also available with a 3,072 x 1,920 IPS touch screen, if budget is an issue. At the same time, you get a top-mounted 5-megapixel webcam with a physical shutter for privacy and Windows Hello support. It has HP’s AI controls and ‘beauty mode’ that can enhance lighting and ‘touch skin, teeth and eyes’.
It should also have enough power to manage these features, with an 11th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU and Intel Evo graphics, or an optional NDIVIDA GeForce RTX 3050 laptop GPU, along with 16GB of memory, 512 GB PCIe NVMe storage and 32 GB Intel Optane memory. It also offers four B&O speakers, up to WiFi 6E, a MicroSD card reader, two Thunderbolt 4s with 40 Gbps speeds and USB Power Delivery USB4 Type-C ports, HDMI 2.0b, Bluetooth 5.2 and 17 hours of battery life. The HP Specter x360 2-in-1 is coming this fall at HP.com or Best Buy from $ 1,639, but expect to pay more for the OLED 4K model.
