HP Spectre 13 X360 2016 released: HP Spectre X360 13 X360 powered by Intel kaby Lake

HP Spectre 13 X360 2016 review (2)

HP Spectre 13 X360 has been released in the USA and the new updated model brings a slew of enhancements over the outgoing model. For instance, compared to the old model, the HP Spectre 13 X360 2016 edition comes with Intel Kaby Lake series of processors, upto 16GB RAM and 256GB / 512GB / 1TB SSD storage options – all depending on the model you get. One thing that will now be standard compared to the outgoing model is fact all SKUs come with full HD resolution as standard.

So all HP Spectre 13 X360 models come with 1080p 1920×1080 pixel display so better and clearer screen. Coming to connectivity side, you get two USB type-c ports, three thunderbolt and USB 3.0 ports. The chassis measures 304 x 218 x 13.7 mm, weighs 1.2Kg and is home to 57.8 Wh battery that gives battery life of 15 hours on a single charge. Now that is what we call an excellent ultrabook hybrid with long battery life.

Other things that have changed compared to last year’s model is thickness which has gone down by about 2mm and the bezels have been made smaller which have reduced its overall footprint. HP Spectre 13 X360 2016 is lighter and easier to carry around.

HP says that it has made the hinges stronger than before so this convertible laptop will last you longer too. The weight has gone down by 150 grams but the feature set has gone up. HP Spectre 13 X360 comes with infrared camera with support for Windows Hello that lets you log-in using facial recognition and wide angle camera that increases viewing space by 12-percent.

This 13-inch convertible laptop will hit the best buy shelves by end of October, to be precise the date is 30th October 2016. The price tag of base model is 1049 dollars and you can already preorder it from HP’s official website right now.

There is no word when it will be making its way to UK, France, Germany and rest of Europe.
