HP relaunched its flagship Specter x360 in a 15-inch version. At CES 2020, the company drastically reduced its viewing margins, resulting in a laptop that was much more compact. In the hardware field, HP offers an OLED display that is calibrated with Ultra HD resolution and an Intel Comet Lake processor.
Like the 13-inch model, HP relies on a display that can be rotated up to 360 degrees with the smallest footprint possible. HP has reduced the viewing margins above and below the panel compared to last year’s model: from before 17.09mm to be 6.53mm at the top and 27.4mm at 10.87mm at the bottom. The result, 2020 x360 Specter will not only have 17.36mm depth, but will also increase the screen-to-body ratio from 80 percent to 90 percent. Furthermore, Specter x360 15 should stand out as a mobile companion in day-to-day business as well as in a personal environment with the end result based on soft colors.
Narrow 3.4mm frame to the right and left contribute to the concise appearance. According to HP, the new webcam, which includes an infrared camera for biometric registration, made an equal contribution. Windows 10 only requires 2.2mm space. Its predecessor was only about six millimeters.

17 runtime clock with Core i7 and UHD displays
HP continues to trust Intel as a chip provider. From now on, the 10th generation Core i processors will be installed up to Core i7. In a footnote, HP mentions Core i7-10510U with Comet Lake family UHD graphics based on 14nm architecture. HP also provides DDR4-RAM 15att CPU with 2666 MHz. In addition to iGPU, unknown Nvidia graphics cards are sometimes soldered to the board. In this configuration and together with the Ultra HD display that includes the 512 GB NVMe SSD in M.2 format, HP claims to have reached the maximum runtime of 17 an hour. What is the power density offered by Specter x360 batteries? 15 Not yet known. There’s a quick charge feature that allows the energy storage to be half full in 30 minutes.
