HP enhances Spectre lineup

HP Inc. launched a bold lineup of new devices that aim to deliver the ultimate combination of premium design, leading security, and enhanced performance.

The redesigned HP Spectre x360 13 and HP Spectre x360 15 join the HP Spectre Folio – available later this month – to create a portfolio of new premium products that deliver superb design, security, performance.

Craftmanship and detail are immediately apparent in each device. Available in stunning dark ash silver with copper luxe accents and the all-new poseidon blue with pale brass accents, the devices feature a gorgeous gem cut design that can only be achieved with aluminum CNC machining. Functional design is equally important, which is why the angled USB-C port is now placed in the faceted edge on the right side of the device for better cable management, and the dual chamfer design makes the lid easier to lift from three sides. The unique design of the speaker pattern is purposeful, with each hole micro-drilled for better acoustic transparency to deliver an amazing audio experience by Bang & Olufsen.

The new Spectre lineup is also equipped with leading security features. A privacy camera kill switch allows the user to electrically turn off the webcam when not in use. It comes equipped with optional HP Sure View, an integrated privacy screen to help users avoid prying eyes in public areas.

The devices are built to deliver an Always-On, Always-Connected PC experience. This includes long-lasting battery life, with up to 22.5 hours in the Spectre x360 13 – a 37 percent increase versus the previous generation – and up to 17.5 hours in the Spectre x360 15. The optional gigabit-class 4G LTE on the 13-inch device and ultra-fast Wi-Fi with up to 1 gigabit download speeds on both devices ensure connectivity from almost anywhere. Connected modern standby ensures emails, calendars, and contacts are always up-to-date, and a wake-on fingerprint reader and wake-on voices enables full log-on almost instantaneously.

Both the Spectre x360 13 and Spectre x360 15 are designed for performance that matches each individual ‘s needs. HP Command Center is a proprietary solution with up to four modes to help customers optimize system performance, fan speeds, and thermal performance based on what applications are being used; change the fan speed to be quieter when watching a movie or adjust for more power to better handle demanding applications like photo editing.

While the Spectre x360 13 is designed for an on-the-go lifestyle with up to the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors, the Spectre x360 15 is the most powerful Spectre convertible laptop to date, delivering up to 20 percent more performance versus the previous generation. Ideal for those who immerse themselves in content creation, the 15-inch convertible features a new thermal design, up to the latest six-core 8th Gen Intel Core processors, and the optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti with Max Q design. In addition, the Spectre x360 15 offers various display options, including an optional 4K touch display or up to 650-nit FHD display – one of the brightest consumer panels in the industry – and up to two Thunderbolt 3 ports support dual 5K displays.
