Ahead of CES 2020, HP has today announced a few devices (new and updated), along with some new accessories. These devices include the Spectre x360 laptop, the Elite Dragonfly business laptop (with 5G connectivity), and the Envy 32 All-in-One desktop. Let’s check out each of these devices in detail.
HP Spectre x360 15
The HP Spectre x360 features a 15.6-inch 4K OLED display with a 90% screen-to-body ratio and a 30% wider color gamut. The increased screen-to-body ratio ensures a more immersive experience with the wider color gamut range adding for better visuals. At its core, the laptop is powered by the 10th-Gen Intel Core i7processor with NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and it offers up to 17 hours of battery life. HP says the laptop comes with Wi-Fi 6, which offers nearly three times faster file transfer speeds than Wi-Fi 5.
Further, taking user privacy into consideration, the company has included a much smaller IR camera, coming in at 2.2 mm, on the laptop. In addition to this, there is an HP Webcam Kill Switch, a dedicated mute mic button, and a fingerprint reader for authentication to ensure security.
HP Elite Dragonfly
The HP Elite Dragonfly is touted as the world’s first business convertible with 5G connectivity, along with the smart signal technology that boosts the antenna performance. Under the hood, there is the 10th-Gen Intel Core vPro processor powering the machine with advanced connectivity and privacy options. Talking more about the world’s first, the convertible also comes with Tile support built-in.
For the uninitiated, Tile is one of the most popular smart location technology companies that allow you to locate your device using tiny Bluetooth trackers. And with the trackers built-in to the laptop, users can easily locate where their lost or misplaced laptop is and also get alerts when they leave behind their laptop.
HP Envy 32 All-in-One (AiO)
Besides the two laptops, HP has also introduced an All-in-One desktop that comes with an edge-to-edge glass display mounted on a solid aluminum stand to offer a premium look and feel. The desktop comes with 9th-Gen Intel Core i7 processors with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics, coupled with up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1 TB of SSD storage. HP says the Envy 32 is the first all-in-one to get support for NVIDIA’s RTX Studio program, which offers over 40 of the world’s top creative and design applications with RTX accelerated ray tracing and AI-assist to speed up tasks and offer high-resolution video editing. Besides this, it also comes with Advanced Audio Stream to offer better audio experience on the desktop.

On the other hand, the HP Ency 32 AiO carries a price tag of $1,599 and is already available for sale on HP’s official website, Best Buy, and Amazon.
