HP’s Leather Convertible Now Available in Burgundy As Spectre x360 15 Gets an AMOLED Display

Posted on January 6, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware with 2 Comments

HP is refreshing its consumer laptops with some minor upgrades this year at CES and introducing a bunch of new monitors. It’s also revealing a new, low-end AMD-based Chromebook today.

The company’s Spectre Folio laptop is now available in a Bordeaux Burgundy variant, and it looks really beautiful. Spectre Folio, for those unfamiliar, is the world’s first convertible PC made with actual leather. The laptop is designed with automobile-quality leather, giving it a very unique look. And apart from the new Bordeaux Burgundy finish, you can now get the 13.3-inch Spectre Folio with a 4K display, too.

HP is also introducing somewhat of a major upgrade for the Spectre 15 x360. The device now includes an AMOLED display, making it the world’s first 15-inch laptop to feature an AMOLED display. The new AMOLED panel will result in richer, deeper colors, introducing support for HDR.

The AMOLED display also means you will get a faster response time, and it’s meant to help your eyes too as less blue light is emitted. HP says the display has a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, which is apparently 33% more colors than sRGB. Apart from that, most of the Spectre 15 x360 remains unchanged.

In other, related news, HP is introducing the world’s first Quantum Dot Display: the HP Pavillion 27. It’s also HP’s thinnest display yet at 6.5mm, with HDR support, three-side micro-edge bezels surrounding the 27-inch QHD panel, and a USB Type-C port on the back. HP is also launching the HP Pavilion 32, and the HP Pavilion 27 with an FHD display today.

Pricing and availability for all of the products are unknown at this point.

    The Quantum Dot Display... I'd like to hear more about that. I remember reading about the technology some years ago, and then nothing since.
