HP Spectre x360 13, 15 laptops launch with premium style and features

HP has unveiled its new Spectre x360 product lineup featuring the new Spectre x360 13 and Spectre x360 15 convertible notebooks. The products are able to meet various needs, offering features like very long battery life, powerful hardware in a convertible design, and ample portability with mobile connectivity, depending on model.

The new HP Spectre x260 13 and 15 sport premium designs alongside modern features, not the least of which is a privacy camera kill switch to address consumers’ growing privacy concerns. Both models boast long battery life, the Spectre x360 13 at a huge 22.5 hours and the Spectre X360 15 slightly under that at 17.5 hours.

The Spectre x360 13 model features 8th-generation quad-core Intel Core processors, while the “15” model has a six-core processor, optional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti with Max Q, and a new thermal design. Both models sport the proprietary HP Command Center with up to four modes for customizing the system and thermal performance, as well as fan speed.

The larger model also comes with multiple display options, such as a 650nit Full HD panel or a 4K touchscreen. There’s a pair of USB-C Thunderbolt ports with support for dual-5K monitors. The 13-inch model can optionally be purchased with gigabit-class 4G LTE for on-the-go high-speed mobile data access.

HP has elected to use a premium design, including a poseidon blue option featuring pale brass accents and a dark ash silver option with copper luxe accents. Both models feature aluminum CNC machined shells, angled USB-C ports, Bang & Olufsen audio, and speaker patterns with micro-drilled holes for “acoustic transparency.”

The HP Spectre x360 13 and 15 will be available through the HP website starting at $1,149.99 USD and $1,389.99 USD, respectively. Both will arrive in Best Buy stores starting in December.
