HP has launched its latest convertibles- HP Spectre x360 in India. There are plenty of things about this machine to love, be it, its thinness or beautiful display. Well, here is our breakdown of HP Spectre x360.
Premium-End Gem Cut Design
The HP Spectre x360 quite evidently is a convertible notebook that comes with elegant aesthetics which go unnoticed at the first look. The company didn’t go with the usual rectangular design, instead, it went with a so-called ‘gem-cut’ design with angular cuts at the rear corners.
Speaking of numbers, this machine comes in at 0.54-inches thick and weighing 2.8 pounds, which apparently makes the laptop portable without any hassle of weight.
Privacy Protected LIT Display
The Spectre x360 comes with one of the brightest screens with 317 nits, along with 101.7 percent of the sRGB spectrum and a 0.74 Delta-E rating (lower the better). Furthermore, this panel is also color accurate and ample contrast. Just in case, if you’re opting for the 4K model, you get 131 percent of the gamut hower, it has a slightly dimmer panel coming at 305 nits.
Coming to the privacy part, the Spectre x360 features HP SureView privacy screen. So, as and when you hit F2 on the keyboard, the display instantly whites out and anyone outside the user’s 70-degree viewing cone won’t be able to see it, a stealthy addition. In addition to that, it comes sports IR camera, fingerprint reader and a camera kill switch (a physical switch turns off the front-facing camera).
Don’t underestimate the HP Spectre x360 by its design. The x360 comes with 7th Gen Intel Kaby Lake Core i7 processor with a Geekbench 4 score of 8,147, well above average ultraportable laptops. Besides, it comes with PCIe SSD which lets it read and write at 318 megabytes per second.
Unmatched Audio Quality
It’s is often seen or generally expected from a thin lightweight laptop to have good sounding speakers. Well, not in the case of Spectre x360. The machine rocks a quad-speaker setup tuned by Bang & Olufsen that places one pair of speakers between the hinge, one on the keyboard and the other on the notebook’s underside.
The speaker placement along with the tuning ensures that you get sound quality that’s befitting of the content that it’s accompanying. Not just that, with HP Audio Boost, the speakers will be able to produce loud sounds without sacrificing clarity.
Ports And Connectivity Options
The wireless trend on the laptop industry (especially on ultrabooks) has killed way too many ports. HP, however, comes with a USB Type-C and a USB Type-A ports to keep the things moving. Speaking on the connectivity, the Spectre x360 support for up to 802.11ac 2×2 Wi-Fi connectivity along with Bluetooth 4.2, which allows a quick flow of data with great reliability.
