HP Spectre Fold - PC, laptop and tablet in one device unveiled
HP has unveiled the world's thinnest and lightest Spectre Fold folding computer. The device weighs 1360 g.
There are several usage scenarios. When unfolded, the HP Spectre Fold is a 17-inch tablet. It has a built-in stand that allows you to use it as a PC, and the flexible screen turns it into a 12.3-inch laptop.
For tablet mode, there is a stylus and keyboard that come with it and can be charged directly on the device wirelessly. The idea behind the 3-in-1 is versatility and the ability to fit a larger screen into a compact form factor.
The Transformer features a 2.5K (1920 x 2560 pixels) OLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 2.5K (1920 x 2560 pixels), a 3:4 aspect ratio and a maximum brightness of 400 nits (SDR) or 500 nits (HDR). The display is IMAX Enhanced certified. A GlamCam camera is built into the frame of the screen.
The hardware includes a 10-core Intel Core i7-1250U processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, as well as 16 Gb of dual-channel LPDDR5 RAM and 1 Tb PCIe4 Gen 4 NVMe M.2 storage.
The 94.3Wh battery provides 12 hours of battery life in laptop mode and 11 hours in desktop mode. There are two Thunderbolt 4 (USB Type-C) ports, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 support. The computer gets a four-speaker audio system with DTS:X Ultra support, tuned by Bang & Olufsen.
The HP Spectre Fold is one of the most expensive folding computers ever released from major manufacturers. It has a starting price of $5,000 and will go on sale in late October. By comparison, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 costs from $2499 and the ASUS Zenbook Fold 17 starts at $3499.
