HP Reveals Spectre Foldable PC

HP recently announced the HP Spectre Foldable PC, a 3-in-1 device with a foldable screen that integrates the best features of a laptop, tablet, and desktop for an ultimate hybrid experience. The Spectre Fold transitions between the three distinct form factors for a frictionless user experience. You can effortlessly switch from a traditional laptop to a slim tablet with a continuous 17-inch screen, then to a powerful desktop with a sleek built-in kickstand. This is possible with a foldable panel and integrated hinge, designed for durability and tested with the same requirements as traditional HP laptops.

The Spectre Fold exceeds the conventional laptop experience as the world’s first foldable PC with one and half screens using a physical keyboard. And no additional cables are needed to charge the Bluetooth keyboard or pen with wireless charging integrated into the device.

The Spectre Fold’s expanded screen is the star of the show, utilizing Windows Snap along with an HP enhanced mode to quickly adapt and reconfigure the Windows layout. And in traditional laptop mode, you can toggle between content and windows, edit photos in Photoshop using the extended or expanded laptop mode, or watch IMAX movies on the full screen using the world’s first foldable PC with IMAX Enhanced Certification.

The Spectre Fold is the world’s first foldable PC with built-in AI for security, wellness, and gesture controls. And the advanced AI chip helps deliver a tailored computing experience. There are also features like walk away lock, wake on approach, auto screen dimming, and privacy alerts. Plus, there are also screen time and distance reminders along with touch-free content control to help you focus on wellbeing while providing a more intuitive interaction with the device.

The Spectre Fold includes HP Presence 2.0 for enhanced productivity and collaboration that takes conferencing to the next level with a 5-megapixel camera to look your best, along with Intel Unison support to easily connect the PC to your mobile device. Using a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor engineered on the Intel Evo platform, the Spectre Fold is capable of handling demanding real-life tasks in any mode with ease.

The Spectre Fold also has graphics powered by Intel Iris Xe Graphics and long-lasting battery life of up to 12 hours in laptop mode and up to 11 hours in desktop mode. For faster connectivity, the Spectre Fold also has Wi-Fi 6E and plenty of storage with 16GB of memory and 1TB SSD.

The Spectre Fold reflects HP’s commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable innovation with eco-friendly materials incorporated into its design. And the cover and keyboard frame contain up to 90% post-industrial recycled (PIR) metal.

The keyboard module wrap contains recycled polyester fiber, and both the bezel and keyboard keycaps contain 50% PCR plastic. The keycaps are coated with 100% water-based paint. And the packaging material is 100% sustainably sourced and is EPEAT Gold Registered and ENERGY STAR Certified.
