Amongst the pile of tech at CES 2019, HP tries to revive a trend by using an AMOLED panel on their laptop, particularly the HP Spectre x360 15. As opposed to the standard IPS panel, AMOLED has a better contrast ratio, brighter, and overall better-looking.
AMOLED panels are commonly found on smartphones, one which Samsung is very known for. So, why now? Why put an AMOLED panel on a laptop just now? Simply put, it’s too expensive. As if laptops aren’t expensive enough today. While this isn’t the first instance, it’s good to see HP bring something exciting to laptops.
Expected to arrive sometime in March, the convertible HP Spectre x360 15 is said to be HDR compliant with 100,000:1 contrast ratio, fast response time, and wide viewing angles which is rare on an AMOLED display. While the technology is known already, the company remains quiet on what resolution they’re going to use but do expect to have an optional touch display. But perhaps the best thing about the display is its battery-saving capability.
Hardware-wise, we’re looking at a business-class convertible laptop clad in black, accented by gold outlines. It’s going to come with Intel quad-core Whiskey Lake-U processors, up to 16GB RAM/512GB SSD storage, and most likely a dedicated Nvidia GPU.
No price was revealed but expect the laptop to come around $900 or almost Php50,000.
