Is HP Spectre Folio 13 available with 15-inch display?

Best answer: You cannot purchase the HP Spectre Folio 13 with a 15-inch display. While HP may roll out a Spectre Folio 15 at some point, you'll need to choose another laptop in the meantime.HP: HP Spectre x360 15 ($1,450)HP: HP Spectre Folio 13 ($1,300+)

HP Spectre Folio is a 13-inch only

HP turned heads in the tech industry with the announcement of the Spectre Folio 13, a notebook that traded a full aluminum chassis for a bit of leather luxury. The only drawback for potential buyers is the smaller display, which is a no-go for those who are used to larger 15- or 17-inch displays on a notebook.

That's something that won't be fixed anytime soon. HP hasn't released all configurations of the current Spectre Folio 13 yet (4K panel is expected soon) so we doubt a 15-inch model is on the cards for some time, if it's ever going to become reality. Instead of holding out, HP has other Spectre laptops that are just as good, if you can live without the leather.

If you truly require a 15-inch display

As far as we are aware as of publication, HP has no plans to release a 15-inch version of the HP Spectre Folio. For now, you'll have to settle with the smaller display, which makes this a deal breaker for those who enjoy larger notebooks. That said, it's possible to kit out the HP Spectre Folio 13 with a 4K display.

If you simply cannot live without a 15-inch panel, you'll want to look at the Spectre x360 15 line-up, part of HP's family of premium notebooks. For $1,450, you'll be able to enjoy a convertible notebook 2-in-1 with an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD for storage. Not too far off from the Spectre Folio 13.
