HP’s first Windows PC powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is coming next spring, but liliputing got the pre-release version of the upcoming HP Envy x2. I have to get HP a huge bonus on this tech. The HP Envy Series was formally Laptops line as we all know it, but all tablet with this powerful mobile processor shows how far the Tech company is will to go.
Design, Specs, and Features of HP Envy x2
HP Envy x2 is a 2-in-1 tablet with a 12.3-inch display, a detachable keyboard cover, and a digital pen. The HP Envy x2 weighs just about 1.5 pounds, measures less than 0.3 inches thick, and it feels remarkably light for a tablet with a 12.3-inch display.
The cover protects both the front and back of the tablet when folded up. But there’s a flap on the back that you can fold down to use as a kickstand. It supports pretty much any angle from 110 to 150 degrees, giving you some control over the position of the screen while you’re typing. It’s not quite as much control as you’d get from a more traditional laptop-style device, but it’s pretty good for a keyboard cover kickstand.
The keyboard also features backlit keys with 1.3mm key travel and a decent-sized touchpad that felt pretty responsive. HP Envy x2 ships with Windows 10 S. But users can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free if they do it by September 2018. Its built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon x16 LTE modem means that you’ll also be able to get notifications and updates in the background whether you’re at home, the office or on the go.
With the Snapdragon 835 as the powerhouse, other specifications are hard to come by the maximum we hear is up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of storage. In addition to a 5-megapixel front camera, there’s also a rear camera with 13 megapixels of resolution for real-world mixed reality testing. There’s one USB-C port, a microSD card slot, a combination phono jack and a SIM card slot. Bang & Olufsen have tuned the audio experience both inside and out with the stereo speakers provided.
