HP has announced the Elite Folio, a new laptop with one-arm CPU. Like the 2019 Specter Folio, this device also has a design that lets you move the screen to rest between the keys and trackpad for media consumption or touch first work, or use this tablet style The bottom can stand on top of the bottom shell. .
The Elite Folio has a 13.5-inch 3: 2 1920 x 1280 display, a nice upgrade from the Specter Folio’s 16: 9 panel. HP has added some extra height by adding stylus silos on top of the keyboard. When Specter stood out to finish his leather, Elite Folio now uses “vegan leather”, which he says is not leather. But at least it should feel better than regular plastic.
The processor is Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 chip, and LTE and 5G connectivity via X20 and X55 modems. The folio can be configured with up to 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. There are two USB-C 3.2 ports and a headphone jack. HP claims a battery life of up to 24.5 hours when viewing locally stored video files, but we’ll have to see for ourselves how the more realistic workload works.
The Specter Folio was a unique product with some obvious flaws: screen aspect ratio, some bad speakers, and an incredible trackpad. We know that the first thing that has been decided with the elite folio is, at least – hopefully we’ll find out about others soon. It will arrive next month, and HP has not yet announced pricing information.
