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.
