HP to launch a 15.6-inch 4K version of its Spectre x360 notebook in February

HP launched one of our favorite notebooks in 2015 with the Spectre x360, with its thin design and its 360 degree rotating display. Today, HP said it will release a larger 15.6-inch version of the Spectre x360 on February 14.

HP stated:

"To help ensure customers have better experiences when creating and consuming high-resolution content, the 15.6" diagonal HP Spectre x360 offers a gorgeous 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) touchscreen with wide viewing angles of more than 8 million pixels, bringing images and moving content to life. The 4K Ultra HD display2 allows users to edit and consume content in its native resolution. To deliver high-performance, HP has included optional Intel Iris graphics and up to 16GB of memory. In addition, the new HP Spectre x360 includes quad front firing speakers custom tuned by Bang & Olufsen for a truly astounding experience for watching videos and listening to music."

The battery life for the Windows 10 notebook will be up to 13 hours for the HD version and up to 9.5 hours if you get the one with the Ultra HD display. The starting price for the 15.6-inch Spectre x360 will be $1,149.

In addition, HP will relaunch the 13.3-inch version of the Spectre x360 with some new upgrades:

HP announced it will offer a Quad HD OLED display option on its 13.3" diagonal HP Spectre x360 starting in spring 2016 to give customers even higher color accuracy, with a broader range of shades and better contrast for watching movies or editing photos. The OLED display is thinner and decreases the weight of the device by 50 grams while providing higher color gamut at 103% vs. 72% on WLED displays. The convertible PC will also offer optional Intel Iris graphics3 and up to 1 TB of SSD storage as the company keeps reinventing the award-winning HP Spectre x360 to deliver premium features to customers so that they have the quality and performance for editing videos, photos or any graphics related tasks.

Pricing for the upgraded 13.3-inch HP Spectre x360 has not been revealed.
