Back in December Microsoft and Qualcomm announced its first "Always Connected" PCs, delivering a full Windows 10 experience on ARM processors. Among these was the HP Envy x2, an ultra-thin PC with some clear inspiration from the Surface line, packing a Snapdragon 835, with 4G LTE2, Wi-Fi and up to 20 hours of active battery use.
As a part of CES 2018, HP has unveiled a second version of the device – this time powered by an Intel processor. Leveraging 7th Gen Intel Core Y-Series processors, this device delivers a balance of performance and power efficiency, while still delivering the always-on experience promised by its Snapdragon 835 counterpart. With this revision, HP is promising up to 17 hours of battery life, which while three hours shorter, still promises the same benefits of the Always-Connected line.
The HP Envy x2 offers a 12.3-inch touchscreen, 256 GB PCIe SSD storage and up to 8GB of LPDDR3 memory. The device also offers support for Windows Ink with its pen and touch experience, a backlit keyboard, and detachable tablet mode. The device will also come with the option of LTE and WiFi connectivity.
HP is yet to provide details on pricing and availability, though can be expected sometime later this year.
