HP refreshed their existing Spectre line-up. HP Spectre x360 15-inch now has an OLED display with HDR support. Otherwise, design-wise nothing much new to talk about. The new Spectre x360 rocks an 8th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD. We are yet to hear anything about the price but you can expect the price to go a bit higher than the existing model of the X360.
Last year’s much talked about HP Spectre Folio which is the world’s first leather convertible PC – is now has a new Bordeaux Burgundy finish and an optional 4K display. Otherwise, the device features the same old 13.3-inch display powered by either Intel Core i5-8200Y/i7-8500Y processor with 8GB of memory and 256GB SSD for storage. Spectre Folio costs $1,309.99.
