Like many tech companies, HP also came to CES in Las Vegas to showcase their new products. The American multinational company notably unveiled a new version of the Specter x360 , its very first 15-inch hybrid laptop. It has an AMOLED panel , which is quite surprising because this type of screen is relatively expensive.
Remember that this display technology offers an excellent contrast ratio (100,000: 1) and very beautiful color intensities. In addition, it supports 100% of the DCI-P3 space.
HP has yet to reveal the price of its hybrid laptop, but we suspect it will be relatively high. In addition, the company mentioned that it will be launched in March 2019. Thus, there is a possibility that the price of the product will be revealed as that date approaches.
A rare laptop
Lenovo and HP were the first to offer computers with an OLED screen in 2016. And the first laptops with this type of screen suggested that this technology had a future in the PC market. However, this technology has only been offered on high-end models, due to its expensive price.
Three years ago, HP equipped its 13-inch Specter x360 with an OLED panel. And now he's used the same technology on his 15-inch Specter x360. This is a first, since no laptop of this size has ever had such a screen before.
An excellent PC
Thanks to the use of the OLED panel, the new version of the Specter x360 offers an excellent contrast ratio and intense colors. But that's not all, this technology also allows for a faster response time, with support for HDR mode.
In addition, it consumes less energy, which gives the computer better autonomy (over 17.5 hours).
The laptop is powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor. It has 16 GB of RAM for 512 GB SSD (PCIe) storage.
It is finished in aluminum and users can rotate its screen 360 degrees so that it can be used as a tablet.
