HP announces a new line of laptops. At the top of the devices is the HP Specter range.
HP is both one of the historical market, but also one of the largest manufacturers in the world. The firm is taking advantage of the spring to unveil a new reference range. The flagships of the range are undoubtedly the new HP Specter X360 13.5 and 16 inches.
HP Specter x360 13.5 inches: Windows 11, 12th generation Intel and OLED screen
We start with the HP Specter x360 and its chassis offering 1.7 cm thickness for a weight of 1.3 kg on the scale. It is therefore a featherweight on the market which will very logically integrate the low-power U series of 12th generation Intel Core processors (Intel Core i5-1235U or i7-1255U).
HP offers many configurations for this product, including three different 13.5-inch panels: a 1920 x 1280 pixel 100% sRGB 1000 nit IPS LCD, a 1920 x 1280 pixel 100% sRGB 400 nit IPS LCD and a 3000 x 2000 OLED 500 nit 100% DCI-P3 HDR pixels. For memory, it can range from 8 to 32 GB of LPDDR4X-4266 MHz and for storage from 512 GB to 2 TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD. The PC also includes a 66 Wh battery, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2.
The brand offers all the security and privacy features it’s known for, including a shortcut to force close the camera and disable the microphone. One of the screen configurations also promises tighter viewing angles to prevent curious eyes from reading your screen. Let’s also mention the PC’s dual Windows Hello compatibility with a fingerprint reader and a 5MP infrared camera capable of face recognition.
The connection is based on 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, a USB Type-A 10 Gb / s port, a micro SD reader and a 3.5 mm jack port. HP also includes a rechargeable stylus for note taking.
16-inch HP Specter x360: more power with Intel Arc
HP also presented the 16-inch Specter x360 with a more imposing chassis, 2 cm thick for 2 kg. The gain in volume obviously allows HP to offer a more muscular configuration. We are now using Intel Core P or H series processors: Intel Core i5-1260P or i7-12700H. Above all, the processor is now optionally supported by a dedicated graphics chip, Intel Arc A370M. RAM ranges from 32 to 64 GB and storage from 512 GB to 2 TB.
The brand again offers three different panels, but which follow the same characteristics as the 13.5-inch version by adjusting the definition: 3072 x 1920 pixels for the first two and 3840 x 2400 pixels for the Oled panel. The connection is also evolving to gain a dedicated power port and an HDMI 2.1 port. The battery increases to 83Wh with a 90 or 135W charger, we imagine depending on whether we choose the dedicated graphics chip or not.
Launching in May in the United States
HP announces that the Specter x360 will be available from May 19 in the United States starting at $1249.99 for the 13.5-inch version and $1649.99 for the 16-inch version.
