HP today unveiled the new premium Spectre range that sets the bold standard for premium PC innovation. With this range comprising the HP Spectre Folio and HP Spectre x360, HP has reinvented every aspect of the PC from the material used to build it, to the experiences it can deliver. The result is the transformative form factor designed for true mobility and equipped to easily adapt to everyday use cases.
There is a growing desire for personal computing devices that enable new experiences and are built for busy, on-the-go lifestyles. This is especially true for customers looking to purchase a premium device, who spend a significant amount of time using their laptop outside of the home.
“HP continues to create the world’s most exciting devices that are leading the PCs into a new era of innovation. By listening to the needs of our customers and leveraging our design and engineering capabilities, HP is setting new benchmarks for the industry,” said Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP Inc. India.
“HP has always believed in insights-based innovation that allows us to deliver the PC experiences that users want. The new HP Spectre series has made a breakthrough in design, versatility and connectivity. The HP Spectre Folio and Spectre x360 achieve the perfect balance of beautiful design, cutting edge engineering and outstanding performance,” said Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems, HP Inc. India.
HP Spectre Folio: A stunning device that sets the standard for design and craftmanship
The HP Spectre Folio provides a PC experience unlike any other. As the world’s first leather convertible PC, HP has embraced the art of “manucrafturing”, where it combines meticulously designed hardware with handcrafted leather and accented stitching.
The Spectre Folio builds on the success of traditional laptops, 2-in-1 devices and convertibles, which are designed primarily for specific productivity tasks or scenarios. The result is unprecedented versatility in a PC that seamlessly converts between three distinct positions. To achieve a thin and light design in this radically new form factor, the Spectre Folio incorporates one of the smallest motherboards in the industry, capitalizing on 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors[i]. An innovative fanless thermal design leverages the unique qualities of leather to create an experience that feels both cool and comfortable in the lap.
Other features include up to 16 GB of memory, up to 512 GB of SSD storage[ii], and a low-power, 1W 400-nits FHD for ideal viewing in any lighting condition. HP has worked closely with the renowned global audio and lifestyle brand Bang & Olufsen to expertly tune the four front facing speakers for a superb audio experience in any of the device positions. To create a more immersive experience, HP Spectre Folio comes with touchscreen.
HP Spectre x360: The intersection of bold design and performance
The HP Spectre x360 is designed for an on-the-go lifestyle, while offering superior design, leading security and enhanced performance. The model features a cut design that can only be achieved by CNC machining. The attention to craftmanship and detail is visible in the functional design, which enables four distinct positions: Laptop, Tent, Reverse and Tablet.
Powered with the latest quad-core 8th generation Intel® Core™ processors, the HP Spectre x360 includes long-lasting battery life. The angled USB-C port provides better cable management, and the dual chamfer design for easier lid lift from three sides. The laptop comes in both FHD 4K (UHD) display options. The unique design of the speaker pattern is also purposeful, with each hole micro-drilled for better acoustic transparency to deliver an amazing audio experience by Bang & Olufsen.
The device also comes with a privacy camera kill switch which allows the user to electrically turn off the webcam when not in use. The HP Spectre x360 is also equipped with optional HP Sure View, an integrated privacy screen to help users avoid prying eyes in public areas.
