HP launched the original Spectre x360 convertible last year, and the device and its capabilities at the time were quite impressive. So we’re happy to see that HP has just announced an updated version of the device with a bigger screen and more powerful internals.
This year’s Spectre x360 will come in a 15.6-inch flavor that also features a 4K screen option, coming in at 3,820 x 2,160 pixels. The new model also sports some beefier internals including Intel’s latest Core i5 and i7 CPUs with Iris graphics and up to 16GB RAM, as well a Bang & Olufsen four speaker audio system.
The new Spectre x360 also claims to be the thinnest and lightest 15-inch convertible, coming it at 15.9mm thickness and four pounds in terms of weight. Finally, the device will supposedly have a very impressive battery life with 13 hours for the regular 1080p model and 9.5 hours on the 4K display.
HP is also releasing a refreshed version of the 13-inch model, featuring the newest Intel processors as well as an OLED version of the display. The OLED display, if you pick this option, should noticeably improve your viewing experience and even weigh a few grams less than the LCD model.
The new devices will go on sale later this year with the 15.6-inch 1080p model being available on February 14th starting at $1,149. The other versions will become available later in the spring.
